You wouldn't get the V1/J1 if you are interested in low ISO image quality. The 7100 and most P&S have better image quality at low ISO:



Nikon sacrificed low ISO image quality in their new sensor for fast FPS.

Nikon has spent years building up a reputation for quality and then seem at risk of spending that capital on this marketing-driven camera system; why make super large lenses to keep a flat distortion when the low iso quality is not stellar in the first place? It seems the lenses have been designed with no compromises at all, while the sensor has been compromised for speed; this creates an imbalanced system, with unnecessarily large, heavy lenses, totally unattractive to p&s users, the intended market.

The fact that a-mount lenses are still worth any money at all is thanks to the success of SLT.
