Default 2012 Panasonic DMC ZS20 or Fujifilm FinePix F770EXR

I'm a realtor. I don't know a lot about cameras. However, I do know I want a 2012 compact digital camera with the following amenities:

1) 20 x Optical Zoom
2) HD video
3) A camera good in low light conditions
4) A wide angle lens, at least 25mm

I have done some research and it appears both the brand new Panasonic DMC ZS20 and the new FujiFilm Finepix F770EXR have these amenities. The new Fujifilm has been released but I cant seem to find a single review on it. It appears the Panasonic got decent reviews but I would like to have some input on the new FujiFilm F770EXR. Does anyone have this camera yet? If not, does anyone have suggestions on which camera would be best between the two? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

The Fuji certainly looks good- on paper- but what doesn't..! Looks good physically too...
The latest Panny apparently has less noise in it's images... though I'm not convinced- though I've long been a fan of the TZ's- a very durable,dependable tool...
Maybe throw Sony's hat into the ring,with its DSC-HX30V...?

Thanks so much. That Sony does look really good! I saw a couple of reviews that confirmed that as well.

If you scroll down this page....

you'll see Panasonic's claimed noise improvement over the ZS10 is justified...!
