I've decided to go with a superzoom and short listed Olympus SP - 560 UZ, Nikon Coolpix P80 and Canon Powershot SX10 IS, which on should I go with?

Of the three, the Canon has a longer optical zoom, better picture quality and faster operation. I think most people would agree that the SX10is is not only the best of the three on your list but one of the best ultrazooms, period.

I absolutely agree. If it's down to those three, the Canon is by far the best. After that, it's a bit of personal preference. I would put the Oly in second place and the Nikon, alas, in third place. This is based on image quality - as perceived by me - not features.

Of the 3 you pickled the Cannon is the best hands down, but I would also check on the Fuji S9100 if you can still find one which I used for 18 months. It had a 10x zoom and made some awesome pictures along the way.
