Sure, if pixel density is what you need

This is the same FOV of a 1" sensor. The Nikon V1 would produce the same image as the cropped 4 meg but would be 10 megs.

And the pentax q would give even more pixel density. (12MP with 5.5x crop)

$200 for an adaptor for Nikon lenses that supports AF & AE).

You only get autofocus with AF-S lenses.

Do you think this is a sensible alternative to the NEX C3 with an adaptor for Nikon lenses and cropping?

Could be - the devil is in the detail of the lenses you will use.
