Default Digicam for sports and concerts

Hey all, here's yet another post by someone looking for a digicam. I posted about this at the beginning of the year and decided to hold off until the Oly C-750 came out. Basically, I would take 'normal' everyday pictures but I would also want the capability to shoot pictures at sport (primarily martial arts, soccer, & football) and concert events (some indoor).

Minimum specs of what I'm looking for:

* 4 MP or higher
* "Good" optical zoom. I'd say larger than 4x but I've learned that this number is more relative to the manufacturer or model than it is to some industry "zoom" standard. Good zoom is important.
* hot shoe
* CF compatible or perhaps xD (don't know much about the latter)
* small f-stop
* small shutter lag (I do know that pre-focusing helps)
* $1k (USD) or less

Any suggestions? Originally, I was looking at the Nikon CP 5700, Canon G3, and perhaps now the Oly C-750. Other model suggestions are welcome. Thanks.
