the zr1 would be the better option. and you can order it off amazon for around the same price ~185USD

the zr1 has the 12mp imager which shows less noise and less noise reduction. it has a leica vs panasonic lens starting at a wider 25mm, and has the power ois (the newer image stabilizer) vs the older mega ois.

I just bought the ZR1 and took it on vacation with me.. I was really impressed with the quality of the camera, especially in outdoor shots.. I was even able to get great shots while in a moving car @ ~45mph of mountains and fields.. I will upload some photos soon and post them in my original thread.

Other than the slightly reduced size, if I can get a ZR1 and ZS1 for the same price, any reason to choose the ZR1 over the ZS1? I think neither has manual controls (PASM), 10 vs 12mp (minimal difference), 4x difference in zoom power are the major differences I'm able to spot.

the zr1 has the same sensor, so there is no difference in mp. the zr1 has HD video, the ZS1 does not, it has a newer processor and image stabilizer.

the ZS1 has 4x more zoom.
