Or, I'd take a more modest step towards the Fuji X-mount line, which is what I'm doing. I'm making a minimal investments and sticking with a Bayer sensor, hence the X-A line. If any of the X-T line bodies had a Bayer sensor, I'd be more inclined to go upmarket.

The problem with the Fuji X-A line is that it has no viewfinder so you have to use the rear LCD, like a cell phone.  I'd recommend instead the recently-discontinued Fuji X-E2s which is currently on closeout  sale at at Adorama for $350 (silver version). You can probably get a used XC 16-50mm zoom for a hundred and fifty bucks or so on eBay. That would give you a good starting kit for $500.
