Off the top of my head, the only so-called bridge cameras that may work for your needs are...in order of increasing price...the Panasonic FZ200, the Olympus Stylus 1, and the Sony RX10. What they all have in common is a "fast" lens. Any camera with less than an f/2.8 aperture at the long end means you would not be able to get the shutter speed high enough to prevent blurry indoor action pics. What the FZ200 gives up over the Olympus and Sony is sensor size, meaning that high ISO shots will be noisier.

The G3 is, of course, a compact interchangeable lens camera. Again, what you would need is a fast lens. The downside of going that route is fast telephoto lenses for M4/3 cameras are extremely expensive.

G3 does not need a fast lens to be much better than FZ200 anyway.
