 I use the Fujifilm x100t and it is an amazing camera.
Maybe also would recommend Sony rx100, which I use to own.

The Sony sensors have had good reviews recently. I used to run Canon stuff, but switched over to Sony a few years ago. Pretty happy with the results.

I'm running a Sony a6000 with a variety of lenses (see sig). I'm mostly a landscape photographer, but family shots on occasion too.

I haven't used enough different cameras to fully be able to recommend something, but I'd put the Sony's on the list.

I got a pretty good deal on a Lumix DMC LX100 last summer. Prolly a few years old and surpassed by now. Fixed lens system, lots of twiddly bits... that gives me trouble sometimes, too many variables and auto options. Does well in low light, however, once I've got it wrestled into submission.  :lol: Very similar to the a fore mentioned Sony a6000.

Lumix and Olympus are m4/3's.  Sony and Fujifilm are aps-c.  All four are plenty capable of delivering great images.  I've done the m4/3's and now have Sony and Fujfilm systems.  Sony for action and Fujifilm for Fuji's awesome color.  Check dpreview for reviews of Sony NEX6, NEX7 and A6000 and so on.  Lumix GF-1, GH-2 and so on.  Fujifllm XE-1...
