Default Panasonic Lumix Fz35 or ZS5?

I'd appreciate some input on these two cameras. Panasonic FZ35 and Panasonic ZS5. I've seen great pictures from both. On Amazon at the moment, the ZS5 is $179 and the FZ35 is $249.
I want a camera for both good images indoor and outdoor/day or night. I'm mainly asking on here which is better because I'm considering trying to sell my photos, so I need to know which one looks better blown up into let's say an 8 x 10? without looking pixelated, or not very much. Some helpful feedback would be appreciated. Thanks all.

I have a Panasonic FZ18, and FZ35 and an FZ100. The FZ35 takes better quality photos than the FZ100 but if you photograph small birds, you'll like the extra zoom and speed of the FZ100. Otherwise, the FZ35 is better in my opinion. I print 8x10s for competitions. I don't use the video at all nor do I take indoor photos so I can't talk to that.

I don't know the ZS5.
