The long end end of the zoom looks more like digital zoom...

The SX 260 has 20x optical zoom - everything above (like 28x) is digital.

Btw tele or wide lenses are not used mainly for zooming or getting it all in, but for changing the perspective of the background/foreground.

Depends on what you do. There are shots you just can't take with a focal length that's too short.

Whilst the Ixus is generally considered the best in range for canon compacts

Well... depends on the kind of Powershot. There are the Powershot A models, the SX models, the S models, the D models, the G models...
I'd sort them that way from "not so good" to "better":
Powershot A
IXUS (very small), Powershot D (water resistant), Powershot SX (small, great zoom range)
Powershot SX the bigger ones (big, fast USM, even bigger zoom range, flash hot shoe), Powershot S (small with good image quality but short zoom range)
Powershot G (big, good image quality, nice handling, flash hot shoe)

Canon EOS 500D + Canon EOS 5D Mark III + Canon EOS 33v
Canon EF 28-80mm 3.5-5.6 USM + EF 24-105mm 4L IS USM + EF 100-400mm 4.5-5.6L IS USM + EF 50mm 1.8 II + EF 100mm 2.8L Macro IS USM + Sigma 12-24mm 4.5-5.6 EX DG HSM + Canon Speedlite 580 EX II + Nissin Speedlite Di 466
