I just went through this same process.  I looked at virtually everything - Nikon 1 (V1 & V2), Olympus EP-5 and E-PL5, Canon Eos M, Samsung NX300, Fuji XE-1, Sony NEX 6, Lumix GX1 (did I miss any?).

In the end, for me, it came down to the NEX or the V series.  NEX felt great, but lens selection is not what I am looking for.  Nikon 1 system has virtually everything I will use in a lens right now (wouldn't mind a fast 35mm equivalent though).  In the end, this and price (I am a cheap SOB) won out.  i have picked up a V1 with the 10-30, 30-11- and the 18.5 (so far) for under $600 in total.
