CSC for $500
Jun 16, 2014

I sold a few of my old cameras and I have $500 to spend on a second camera. I have a Nikon D600 so I am looking for a CSC that is more portable and less conspicuous. I have been looking at cameras like the Sony NEX-6 and the Fuji X-A1. I really like APS-C cameras but am not against Micro 4/3. I am brand agnostic so am open to any brand.

I will be using it primarily for taking pictures of my family/kids, for travel, and for some street photography. My primary goal is image quality (I know it is not only camera dependent, but all other things being equal...). I'm also not too proud to admit I sometimes use auto and shoot JPEGs so OOC JPEG quality is very important. Next on my list is handling (I like shooting in A mode for travel-type shots and S mode for kid photographs). I am 6'4" so I have big hands.

I know there are lots of options so I appreciate any input from current CSC users. My only limit is the $500 price.
