Re: S100 vs. Nikon 1

The point is that the two cameras you are considering represent a large range of cameras, so it isn't clear why you would have narrowed your choices to those two. You should also be considering the m43 cameras from panasonic and olympus, the canon g12, the olympus xz-1, the panasonic lx5, and many others.

my personal view would be that you should be comparing the s100, lx5 and xz-1.

No offense intended, but you suggest I first somehow decide on the answer and then...?

From the viewpoint of someone with three Nikon FX- and DX-size bodies and nine Nikkor lenses, both the cameras under consideration are pretty much in the "toy" category. (I have never followed this part of the camera market before.) I just want to know how small a toy can be useful to me under which circumstances.
