Perhaps consider the Panasonic FZ200- it has the zoom you need,a nice light gathering f/2.8 lens throughout the zoom range,fast focus,fast burst,good movie capture,effective stabilizer...etc... and WELL inside your budget... and it even looks like a DSLR...

If you want equivalent zoom range on a DSLR you're going to need a wide angle lens and a telephoto lens- or maybe consider something like Tamron's 18-270 VR "all in one" lens- roughly equivalent to 27-400mm on an APS-C DSLR.
