My 2 cents: I decided to go with the ZS15.

Unfortunately I will say I am dissapponted with the image quality.

It is not bad, but in side by side comparisons, the shots are more noisy and less sharp than my Canon sx130 (a camera which is about 2 years older than the zs15).

I do also see some differences in the white balance - but that might be a preference more than anything.

My goal with this purchase was to get a camera with as good image quality as the sx130 but faster (since the sx130 is a slow snail in the shot to shot performance category).

I do not believe that this camera is going to suit my needs.
I am sad overal that the image quality of my sx130 is not as good as my old canon a610, and now this "upgrade" represents another drop in image quality (this terrible approach of more zoom and more megapixels just seems to be moving things backwards).

I guess I will return it and try the sx230.

Failing that I might just have to wait for some of the faster more expensive cameras that are coming out....
