Default Canon SX40HS vs. Nikon Coolpix P500 - advice please?

Hello. I am quite interested in these two cameras. I want a "point and shoot" with wide angle and optical super-zoom, 1080p video option, & 12 MP or higher for stills. I am a Canon fan, but also like Nikon. Does anyone have any advice or opinion on which of these two cameras would be the best multi-function camera for both video and stills? Or, for that matter any other camera recommendation that fits these criteria (wide-angle to super zoom, 12 MP and above, 1080p video) and price point? Oh, and one final factor - does anyone know if I will have any issues downloading video to my MAC from either of these cameras and then transferring to DVD or other format? Thank you.........

Hi- others maybe to consider are the very impressive Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ150 the Sony HX100V and Fuji's HS20. I own the Canon and am impressed with it...
Here's a P500 v SX40hs comparison....

Simon. Thank you VERY much for the very informative comparative review. I appreciate your help. Do you know of any compatibility/ease of use issues with either of these cameras when transferring video content to a MAC and then burning it to DVD? I will also take a look at the other cameras you mention; I think I did previously look at the Lumix.

Unfortunately- I have no idea if there are any compatibility issues with regards the "Mac" system- as I'm a Windows guy..! Maybe message a few uses here with the said camera and see if they can help.
