My priorities, in order, are:

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.

3) Ability to produce shallow DOF.

5) $500-600 range.

Is there anything else I'm missing?

Fuji's a good choice for you, but the kit zoom -- while a nice lens -- is not compatible with goals 2 and 3.  You might consider buying a used X-E1 with the 35mm f/1.4.  Or wait for Fuji to offer a lens bumdle.
