OK, now I'm leaning towards the ZS7. One more question...if I were to drop my search to a compact camera with a lower zoom, say 7 or 8, still compact, could I find one with a bigger sensor for a max of $250? I can't afford the S90 and want a larger zoom than that, do I have any other choices at all?
I really do appreciate your help.

The only P&S w/ a larger sensor and a 7x zoom is the Nikon P700. It's $400 and quite a bit larger than any of the cameras you're looking at. As the sensor size increases, the lens size increases and thus the camera size increases. The cheapest larger-sensor current model is the Samsung TL500, which was going for about $300 and has since gone back up to ~$350. Again though, none of the larger-sensor cameras will be able to meet your zoom requirements.
