    Hi Tom.
    You've got the focal lengths fairly covered by the kit zooms, so what you lack are ultra wide and bright primes.
    I'll just tell you what I've got and why. Since my G6 isn't pocketable even...

    I should add that the problem you have got is more a budgetary one than of hardware. For low light you need a bigger sensor than fitted to your run-of-the-mill bridge or smaller travel-zoom camera....

    At the top end of your budget is the Sony RX10. Superb quality camera and no need for extra expenditure on lenses. It is only just over a 10x zoom optically, although for occasional use you could use...

    Sony A58 sounds like what you need. The kit lens is, following industry practice, a short zoom and perfectly adequate for landscapes and portraits for the time being. You could add a 35mm bright...

    I had a serious look at the original Q some time ago, when they were virtually giving the bodies away for, istr, 80. The lenses are not dirt cheap though and a lot of them are, what they call, toy...

    If it is under warranty and has not had some mechanical damage, send it to be repaired. If out of warranty, throw it away and get another 50 camera, or ideally get a better one. Around 130 will get...

    Your best bet would be the Panasonic TZ40 at 135 or so at Currys if they have any left. Not sure how much of a faff it is to connect directly to a wi-fi printer.
