though it looks like a tight one here, 3d is the deal breaker for me..i want a 3d capable (i have 3d  tv) superzoom so it's pretty b/w sony hx100v and lumix fz150 now. researching at various sites and seeing samples shows lumix has a better picture quality so i think i'll abide by it. Btw, snapsort only provide scores based on paper figures and not user reviews , so its not 100% reliable...on papers nikon s500 is the best, but once you research a bit., you'll know the truth on field.
