I'd gladly pay for that camera as well.

I bought a P7000 for the same reasons of portability. I tried a Sony NEX in a local camera store about a year ago (after reading good things online), but I found the interface very non-intuitive. The great thing about the Nikon is that it feels like my SLR in use, if slightly less responsive. Other than the restricted depth of field control that comes with the smaller lens I haven't found much it can't do.

Here are some of my own P7000 pictures to give you an idea of output - some were shot JPG and some RAW. Most have some post processing. From what I've read the P7100 is better at the higher ISO registers, sure others can confirm, but I'm happy with the P7000.

Hope it helps in your decision.
