Everyone has their own way of looking at things. For me, I sometimes use the LX5 when we go on a little family trip, but I take the GH2 when I want better video and a longer zoom...and better image quality. If I want the very best quality and I don't mind the size and weight, I take my D700. That's just how I go about things. The Nikon 1 'for me' is close enough to image quality and video quality of the GH2. Close enough that I'm willing to take the leap and buy one. I don't like throwing away money and I will indeed take some of a hit when selling my GH2 (which I plan to put on ebay this evening), but my GH2 is in mint condition and I've had good luck getting a very reasonable price form any used camera I sell on there.

Anyway, the image quality and the new innovative features of the Nikon 1 is enough to convince me to buy one as my middle camera (in between my D700 and LX5).
