Sony HX99, Panasonic ZS80, or Canon SX740

Long time user of Panasonic ZS series, have just dropped and broken my second ZS80. Love the 30X zoom, pocket size, tilting screen, and already have several batteries and just the right case. Rarely use EVF.

I'm looking around at alternatives and see two candidates: Canon SX740 and Sony HX99. Canon has longer zoom, tilt, but no EVF. Sony has same zoom, tilt, EVF, and is smaller but more expensive.

I'm open to your thoughts and experiences with these cameras. I had intended to include Nikon's A1000 but it doesn't seem to be available.
