The SX700 seems to be the replacement for now and until proven otherwise. I tend to agree with others that 750 at the long end may be a little much and 500 on the 280 is most likely more than enough. We'll see what the reviews and user reports have to say about the 700.

With 25% more pixels packed in to that same old tiny 1/1.7" sensor, don't count on any better IQ or less noise performance. There is only so much noise reduction software can do for an over crowded pinhead sensor

High end P & S do very well IMO as long as the person realizes the limitations and exploits what these little guys can do.  My concern has more to do with hand holding a camera the size of the SX700 at the long end.

I think the SX700 will be okay using optical zoom. I'm not so sure about digital zoom but that is generally not recommend in any case with any  P & S because of IQ degrading.
