SO ... For carrying around, taking quality pictures to print at 8x10 size, sx260 with the 20 zoom would you go for it over the sx40 with 35 zoom

Not me personally. If I'm going to get a long zoom camera, I want a viewfinder to steady the shot. Granted, the superzoom viewfinders aren't as great as those on a DSLR but they are very useable in bright sun, for steadying the camera when panning and using the long end of the zoom. There is also a hot shoe for an external flash should you want one. The articulating LCD comes in handy too. The SX40 also has a faster aperture throughout the zoom.
