Going for Nex 5T, stop me if you think I am making a mistake.

Ok I have poured over million camera combinations and read countless threads online for last few months and it seems for better or worse Nex5T comes closest to what I need currently....

What I definitely need and won't compromise on:

1) 180 degree tilt screen.

2) APS-C sensor size.

3) Touch screen, not must have but good to have I guess.

What I need too but looks like I will have to compromise on:

1) Viewfinder.

3) Super fast AF.

4) Quiet shutter.

What will be the main use of the camera?

1- Capturing beautiful Alpine landscape.

2- Capturing me and my woman together.

3- Capturing my daily life/city surroundings.

4- Capturing close up of plants and flowers.

Main doubts about 5t?

1) Menu looks from 80s

2) Not many external controls

3) Battery life

4) AF speed

So I can pick Nex5T brand new with kit lens for USD 450. RX100III hits all the right spots too but with 1" sensor and double the price I am not sure. Also I am going on holiday in July so need to pull the trigger soon.

Just for comparison, prices locally in Europe with kit lens

a6000 $900

a5000 $467

Nex6 $724

Nex5T $450

So what do you say?

P.S- I think Sony will eventually release an APSc camera with 180 touch screen, viewfinder, fast AF in a all in one a7000. So I want to keep some $s tucked away so I can pick that up later hence no point spending too much on current cameras, hence Nex5T?
