I would add the m43 100-300mm which gives you a 600mm equivalent with the 2x crop. Although not as long as the Nikon 1 with 300mm, the extra MP (16 vs 10) make up for most of that.

I keep a compact on me for the shorter focal lengths.

lol, it doesn't work that way. With modern megapixel counts, twice as many megapixels gives you a hair better resolution. Whereas twice as much optical zoom actually gives you twice as much detail. (An exception might occur if they had to make lens compromises to get that additional zoom).
