This is my first post here! We are off to New York and are looking for point and shoot camera with a decent zoom for obviously the sites we will see, I have seen the Panasonic Lumix T27 and TZ30 but really cannot see the difference between the two except touch screen and GPS. So for the money is the money really worth the difference - as in will there be an improvement in pictures? Or if there is any other cameras that are similar if not better than these camera for around the same price?

Thanks in advance
