The X-A1 is an excellent choice and meets the priorities you listed.

The AF will not catch moving subjects like a DSLR, but it is fine for most use. It is similar to other mirrorless cameras and compacts that use CDAF.

Wolfe's currently has the X-A1 on sale for $499: http://www.wolfes.com/fujifilm-xa1-digital-camera-zoom-lens-black.html

I think the X-A1 is the best camera in that price range. I recommend you start with the kit and see how it works for you. If you find that you are using hi-ISO too frequently or you want a shallower DoF, then you can add a fast prime (like the 35 f/1.4).
