Blue-coupe, unless you need a super-zoom, your best bet is Panasonic LX3. It has a truly awesome leica lens and probably the best high ISO performance among compact cameras (mainly because of the larger sensor as compared to both FZ28 and the Coolpix). See dpreview comparison here:

Surely, Nikon is a big name and it makes the best DSLRs like D3X, but in the compact cameras market Nikon's products are definitely not spectacular. I am telling you that as a big Nikon DSLR/lenses fan as I own a D90 and a bunch of Nikon lenses. My guess is that the compacts market is not Nikon's target as they make more money selling serious cameras and lenses. As an example, here is a review of the P90 superzoom and a recommendation to buy the FZ28:

Surely, on paper P90 has a very impressive 24x optical zoom, but it comes at the expense of the image quality.
