Two more Panny Cams for y'alls, this time the DMC-LZ6 & DMC-LZ7. Both clocking in at 7.2 megapixels, the only real difference between the two is the screen size. The LZ6 has a 2-inch screen and the LZ7 has a 2.5-incher. Otherwise they both have 6x zoom and optical image stabilization. They both also come equipped with Panasonic's Venus Engine III, allowing them to handle dark and low light shots well. The sensitivity setting can be cranked as high as ISO 1250 at full resolution, which ain't too shabby.

Both will be available come next month, with the DMC-LZ6 costing $179 and the DMC-LZ7 coming in at $199. $20 for an extra half inch of screen size? Seems like a no-brainer to me.
