Are there any other cameras that use a common lens mount, with a small sensor? I'm a Nikon fan, but I don't want to have to use a lens mount adapter, and the Nikon V1/V2 don't have good enough manual controls for my taste.

There is also the Pentax Q series, with much smaller sensors (and pixels) than the Nikon 1 series. There are Q adapters for just about every lens format. No control of aperture or focus, of course.

So long as the camera has live view, you can control them with rings on the lens.

Obviously a recent lens that has no good controls and expects electronic signals from a camera is not suitable.
