Default Fuji F300EXR v Panasonic ZS7.. which one?

Opinions requested... I will be purchasing a pocketable camera to be used on mountaineering, glacial traverse, summitting trips. I have narrowed my choice to Fuji F300EXR or Panny ZS7/TZ10 (not set in stone).. the vast majority of its use will be outdoors while trekking.. as I will have a FZ40 for low light sunrise/sunset/evening pics w/ packable tripod. My question is which has the best Image Quality?? I know neither excells in low light..

If there are other options.. preferences: 12 mp (would consider 10).. PASM.. zoom (10x +/-).. video is not a priority.. neither is GPS since I carry a separate unit (can the GPS on the ZS7 be turned off?) The deciding factor will be IQ...

Thanks for any opinions..

The ZS7 is no worse in low light than the FZ40 (perhaps even a little better). That said, I think the ZS7 has great IQ with good lighting and is just an all-around great P&S. While I don't know much about that specific EXR camera, I know that by the nature of their design, they have a bit of a learning curve. I don't know if that's a factor for you.

FiveO.... Thanks for the relpy... after additional research, I pulled the trigger on the ZS7... I'm sure I won't be disappointed

FYI... I disabled the GPS
