Simply determine your needs, and go with the Camera that provides them. Trying to make a decision today, in any other way is foolish. There are just too many choices, to even consider.

From your basic needs, which are rather extensive. Probably a DSLR is going to be your best choice, since sports photography requires a camera with minimum shutter lag. Which the other cameras you have mentioned, have a goodly amount of.

I'm in the same boat, NoZoom. I think I'm going to go for the G1X, already have the SX40.

Big sensor with compact size is hard to beat.

yes Big sensor with compact size is nice, but nopw compete bet G15 or G1X :)
have you considered G15 which seems much nicer. I see many folks like G12, so G15 got to be better

Compared to the G1X, the only advantage I see to the G15 is size. But since I'm already used to the larger bridge cam, that's not really an advantage for me.

The sensor on the G1X is what really impresses me: considerably larger than the one on the G15, which isn't much larger than the one on the SX40.

The G15 looks good, but it's like Hersheys to the G1X's Ghirardelli. :D

I have an SX40 and my next purchase will be a G1X which I'm
choosing over the T3i because of portability. I don't need
to lug around 2 bulky cameras, go G1X will have to do for now
