I also have a D90, with the 18-200, and 50 and 35 mm primes. I also have three kids. I just picked up the J1 with the 10-30/30-110 kit and am really enjoying it (replaced a NEX-5). Main reason for buying was to have a smaller travel camera as with three kids, there's just no more room in hand baggage for my D90 kit.

The camera does as advertised with the focus speeds and I've got some great pictures both indoors and outdoors of my kids. It's also really nice to carry as it's so light (with either lens). A few gripes, but that's because I'm so used to the D90. However, it's a camera that just works, and I'm very rarely diving into the menus to change setting and just get on with taking the shots, and shoot most of the time in P mode.
