Default Canon SX720 or Pansonic Lumix ZS60?

Hi. I'm new here. I currently have an old Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX18. It's a great camera, but I'm looking for something smaller, lighter and with much better zoom capabilities. The FX18 has 18x zoom.

I'm trying to decide between the Canon PowerShot SX720 (40x zoom) and the Panasonic Lumix ZS60 (30x zoom). On paper, the Panasonic seems to have better and more diverse features, but the customer reviews are not that great. The Canon seems to have better overall customer satisfaction, even though it has less features.

I'm wondering if anyone has experience with either of these cameras and/or can make suggestions? Thanks.
