Must buy camera at once -- SX50 HS or Panny FZ200?

I know they're not quite head to head, and that this is Canon country, but I ask anyway. Had a FZ70 and thought it pretty good all around. I wanted to wait for the SX60, rumored for over a year now, but can't wait.

Is the focus on the SX50 as slow as it seems (I've tried in store and it seems way slower than the FZ70 and miles behind the Fuji 50 EXR (phase detect). Could just buy another FZ70 but gather that the FZ200 is a better all arounder.

Any advice (or other suggestions) requested and welcomed, thanks.
