Panasonic Lumix DMC-SZ7
Giving the more expensive Sony WX150 some strong competition, the SZ7 has a 10x f3.1-5.9 25-250mm lens and Panasonic's Light Speed AF system. If you don't need all the Sony's bells and whistles or just want to save nearly $100, the SZ7 is the way to go.

The good: The Panasonic Lumix DMC-SZ7 delivers fast shooting performance and very good photo and movie quality in a slim package with a wide, long lens.
The bad: The SZ7's battery life could be better, and its pictures probably won't thrill pixel peepers.
The bottom line: A speedy little camera with a long lens, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-SZ7 performs beyond its tiny price tag.
