2) Good low-light performance, meaning low-noise indoor stills without a flash. I hate noise. I hear people talking about smudging and loss-of-detail when it comes to NR, but to be honest, I can't see that. All I see is the noise.

Sony has the most aggressive noise reduction. Did you look at NEX? They are very cheap now. Try to buy one body-only because you can get the Sigma 30/2.8 for $199. It is an excellent lens, better than anything Sony makes except maybe the 18-200, which costs more for just the lens than your maximum price.

3) Ability to produce shallow DOF.

The 16-50 will not do this (already mentioned)

4) Tilting or articulating screen.

The X-A1 does not have this.
