Current camera stinks, it's old. Want a new camera to capture my sons in fast moving sporting events like bull riding, golf (at least the swing is fast ;)), tennis, water skiing. Need decent zoom to get good pic from stands. Any recommendations?

Since for the most part the events you are describing are outdoors in good light, you will probably get decent results from the better ultra zooms, like the Canon S3, the Sony H2 and H5, or the new Fuji S6000.

But you would get significantly better results from a DSLR, for not too much more. So you might also want to look at models like the Canon Rebel XT, the Nikon D50, the Olympus E-500, and the Pentax K100D.
