My priorities, in order, are:

1) Non-DSLR.

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.

4) Tilting or articulating screen.

5) $500-600 range.

Is there anything else I'm missing?

Consider X-M1 with the 35mm lens. I got one kind of by accident and was impressed at how easily I could adapt it to use in manual mode and the flexibility and stealthfulness it afforded me in less than  optimal scenarios, especially when I am out and about with my 27mm.
