So, perhaps a camera with a good Auto mode suits me.

All cameras have good auto modes, those with good IQ also have full manual control so you'll get both options regardless of what you choose. NEX-5n is nice, but the kit lens is larger than the ones you'll find on models from Panasonic, Olympus, Nikon and (the fixed lens) on Canon G1X.

The Sony RX100 looks really promising as long as you can do without viewfinder, but it's so new that I've only seen it on pictures. http://www.dpreview.com/previews/sony-dsc-rx100/

Another good and compact option is Panasonic GF5 (or GF3) with Panasonic's X14-42 lens.
