you have to give up the zoom, 4x is about all you can get with a olympus xz1 and you loose the faster AF of the casio.

I thought it would go over the budget.
Since I do have the T1i, I will mainly use the new camera on adventures with the little ones outside.

Let me chime in. I suggest not trying to replace your canon. you won't be able to. look for a small camera that compliments it. so: little, more zoom, easy to use. the lag is from the focus step, get used to pre-focussing. you don't have to snap the shutter. just pre-focus as a habit. then there's no lag. when your child gets in the roller-coaster car, pre-focus on the front of the car. dof will work for you.

personally, i have a casio because they're small, go-everywhere. i have a dslr for the important shots. (also, i have a mirrorless for the in-between times.) win that "too many cameras" argument by giving your camera to one of the kids after a few months if they're old enough. then get another.
