Default looking for a camera with...

i'm looking for a camera with these features:

$500 or under
at least 10x optical zoom
evf or optical view finder
decent quality video that zooms while shooting
at least decent quality pics - i'm not expecting miracles

no major lens distortion or c/a - i know with a mega zoom, there's gonna be some, but i'd rather keep it to a minimum.

a flip out monitor would be nice, as would the ability to shoot raw, but neither are necessary. don't care about megapixels, but do want decent detail - i don't want that sort of washy water color look some pics have.

G'day pc

I'd be looking into the Panny or Canon or Fuji range of cameras
Check with dpreview for fine details of your requirements - ie "video that zooms while shooting"
