Default Looking for Compact SuperZoom Camera

Hi people,
4 years ago when I was looking for a camera you were so helpful so I figured I would ask you guys again.
I seem to have lost my Samsung WB550 - with a new little one on the way I want to replace it.
What I am looking for is in the $300-500 range
  • minimal lag between photos
  • decent indoor low light photos
  • as compact and light as possible as I want to have it in the diaper bag or purse
  • minimum 20x Zoom
I was looking at the
Nikon COOLPIX S9600
Canon - SX700 HS or the SX280
Sony Cybershot DSCWX350W
Panasonic TZ60 / ZS40
Advice?

For a newborn through pre-school, I'd be more interested in the shorter zoom, premium class P&S models with hotshoes for use with a TTL flash and diffuser.

Nothing freezes motion in low light like a flash.

I have the Panasonic TZ40 (ZS30) of wich I'm very satisfied. It's fast (for a compact) and can make decent pictures up to ISO1600. So i think the TZ60 might be good as well.

I ordered the sony HX50 (last years model that seems to have slightly better reviews than this years) and the nikon 9700 - I will play side by side and see which I like. I will keep you posted.
