SX260 v HS330 v S110...or...?

I have a bridge cam and a $60 Fuji pocket cam with AA batteries, but feel like a better pocket camera would be nice. (Price does matter, though. I'd like under $200, mid $200's top; so the S120 is out of the question.).

Reading through the threads, it seems people are very positive about the HS330 (much more than HS340 due to sensor/lens). I want best IQ of course within price range, and I like a lot of zoom, but am willing to compromise if IQ/low light/macro/price balance it out.

I've kind of narrowed it down, but it's odd how some of the newer Canon pocket models are cheaper than the older ones:

SX260 ($209) v. SX280 ($179) - both 20x zoom

HS330 ($219) v. HS 340 ($179) -- both 10x zoom

S110 ($249) -- 5x zoom so is the IQ that much better than the cheaper ones above? (The S120 is out of my price range at $449--and I haven't read anything to believe it's worth the difference.)

Any thoughts/advice?

Thanks in advance,
