Best camera under 350~500USD (used) with good AF,Depth of field, has touchscreen and a viewfinder?

Hi, I'm just starting out and I need a list of suggestion(please do, so I may watch more reviews to decide :>) for cameras that can do these:

Yes I know the price is rather low but a few good deals come out here and there and I hope to try my luck, but otherwise I'll compromise on some of the novelties.

These are the things I hope to look for, its importance in descending order, so most important features first:

  • Good dynamic range (impt)
  • Touchscreen focus
  • Fast autofocus
  • Good depth of field
  • Viewfinder
  • Portability (I can skimp on that)
  • Timelapse capability (it's a more/less just a novelty)

Im very new but I hope to learn, I'll be doing both photography and videography.

I won't be doing wildlife or sports photography anytime soon

I definitely will want to do landscape photography though

And i might make videos in which the type is very similar to review videos, B-rolls? :>

I'm willing to take away some features like WiFi and some of the consumer friendly stuff since I think I'll be fine without it.

And because I'm new, I've no particular idea what lens to look for.

But I hope to be able to zoom so i think a telephoto one would be good?
Honestly even stock lens might get me going haha.
