for the same price I can have a 10-30 kit lens and the FT1 adapter

FT-1 adapter is big, and so are the lenses that attach to it. If you want a small camera, you negate much of it with this, in my opinion.

which would allow me to use my Nikon cameras. I don't know if this is possible with 4/3. So I'm leaning a bit towards the Nikon 1 but I'm still researching it and I'd love to get some feedback from the 4/3 crowd.

I have experience with the V1. Love the electronic shutter. Love the high-speed captures. Pic quality is surprisingly good (for the sensor size), but I prefer the quality I get from (ye olde) 16MP Panasonic Micro Four Thirds (along with the far better fast access to common controls).

But need I mention how much I love the electronic shutter and fast captures of the Nikon V1? No compatibility with current flashguns on the new accessory port is a big no-no to me though.
