To be honest and impartial (I own neither, but I do own your cam's big brother, FZ30)
There isn't a lot to tell in the picture quality. You'll notice a massive step up in both image quality and complexity, but I think the rest is down to ergonomics and the availability of accessories etc. I think canon just about edge it on the accessories front as there are more canon users at pro/am level, and therefore the kit tends to a smidge cheaper and easier to get hold of. nikon for build quality. I've handled both as a couple of my friend own them and to my mind I prefered the Nikon.

But as above really, get to a shop and have a play, no shop manager is gonna deny a potential customer the chance to try the wares!

Oh, and welcome to the forum. It's good here!
