Default Which camera w/ zoom for outside?

Which non-dslr camera w/ some decent zoom (15x?) would you recommend for 99% outdoor use only. I just ordered the Sony HX5 based on some excellent reviews, but would also like something with just a little more zoom for vacations. Thank you!

Without a shadow of doubt, I would be on the internet or phone ordering a FZ35...

akmontgomery-

I think that we have discussed this before: the Panasonic FZ-35 is clearly the best choice.

Are the menu systems and overall functionality similar to the ZS3? I tried the ZS3 for a bit, but didn't like how it sounded when zooming and didn't care for the menus. But maybe that's just my personal issue having only used Canons.

The menu structure on the FZ-35 is very easy to use. However, it naturally bears some resemblance to the ZS3 camera as both cameras are made by Panasonic.
