Wait for Black Friday (if you are in the US). There will some big bargain deals on some of the cameras that you are interested in.
I have the Panasonic FZ200. However, it's selling for between $450 and $599. I also have the FZ70 which goes from 20 to 1200mm. However, I don't think it's as good as the FZ200 (25-600mm with an F/2.8 aperture available throughout the entire range). There are many good deals to check at dealsofamerica . Some good deals are available on this site. Nikon D3100 and D5100 are often available on the dealsofamerica.
If you get a superzoom, it will have the advantage of covering an incredible zoom range. If you get a DSLR or mirrorless 4/3 camera you will have better image quality at higher ISO (low ight) settings AND potentially a narrower depth of field.
