Default Is FujiFilm XF-1 worth the risk?

I mainly photograph as a function of wildlife research. I need to be able to take pictures in all lighting conditions, and though I take both close and far shots my current work emphasizes close-up pictures of small animals. To that end, I'm looking for a camera with the following features:

Primary: high image quality, works well in low light, takes good macro pictures

Secondary: durable, decent action photos, takes shots relatively quickly

Would be nice...: a decent zoom (but I'm not expecting to get that), decent battery life

My price range is under $250, though under $200 is preferable.

To meet as many of those features as possible, the XF-1 sounded really good. I also thought about the Sony WX80, Canon ELPH500 or ELPH340, etc., but the XF-1 was my favorite. However, some people complain about a bug that crops up at least some of the time after a few months. Does anyone have any experience with this, and is the FujiFilm XF-1 worth it anyway?
