I just have to get a Canon or Panasonic ultra zoom camera. Which one should I buy?

Here are my issues:

I have a 1GB and 512MB CF cards. Should I go with the S1 since it takes CF so getting an S1 would save me about $100+ in new memory cards?

If performance is equal, I would probably go with the Canon (love the LCD), but the Panasonic is lighter and supposed to have a great lens, and I've read the Canon images are soft. Is this true?

There are still Z3's available and at good prices. Are the 5 MPs worth the extra money?

Should I go with a cheaper (3 MP) ultra zoom and save up for a bigger purchase later?

I have a Canon PowerShot S400 that I love, but I need a camera with 10-12X zoom for sports and distance shooting.

These ultra zoom cameras seem like they are compact and light enough to easily carry around for street photography as well.

Thanks in advance for the help!
