500$ "system" for older family member

I've had a family member ask what camera system they should buy with $500. I totally understand that this is a very limiting budget, but i'd like to get them a body with viewfinder, a normal fast prime and a decent travel zoom. I'm thinking mirror less is the the way to go for size and weight. Options I have considered are something like a panasonic gx85, 12-60 and 25 1.7, or a Canon m5, 18-150, possibly 22mm. Is there something I am missing? Video is not a concern, but size is, otherwise I'd suggest and older Nikon 3xxx, 18-55 and 35 1.8. I'd love to hear your suggestions. They like my Fuji gear but it's way out of the budget.
