The things you call "baggage" are a fact of life with a DSLR -- weight, complexity, cost -- but it also brings you more capability and flexibility (and usually quality). I live with one foot in the DSLR world (Canon) and one in the Mirrorless world (Fuji), mirrorless cameras just re-arrange the impacts and results. I would suggest, honestly, looking at an upgraded point and shoot, either another Lumix or something similar, especially at your budget. I like the Canon SX50, for instance, for cost and flexibilitym or the new SX60 just released. You don't need a DLSR for good images today.
