I need someone smarter than me to analyze the pros and cons of these new Super Zoom cams. Need a new camera and don't know how to decide.

We need to wait for reviews to come out before we can say which is best. For example, the Sony H1 looks good on paper but I'm not sure how good it is (it is also Sony's first ultra-zoom if I'm not mistaken so who knows).

Anyway, right now, the Pansonic FZ3 (or the higher end FZ20) seem to be the best if you don't care about video. It has very good image stabilization, bright lens (f2.8 throughout zoom), and 12x zoom.

If you care about video, then maybe the Konica Minolta Z5 may be best, although I would really wait and see how the Sony H1 stacks up...

I think you should wait for the cameras that were announced for the PMA conference to come out...
