I had the same dilemma

My wife also had some camera needs, so I ended up buying 2 cameras, the RX100 and the Nikon 1 V1.  Even though I have a 60d, I went with the V1 instead of the P7700 because of the larger sensor and the price.  I got a refurb V1 (Nikon factory re-conditioned demo) from Cameta (which has gotten good reviews) with a 10-30mm and 10mm prime lens for about $520.  The only catch was that the camera is black and the 10mm lens is white, but that doesn't bother me.

I'm looking forward to having the RX100 for my pocket and/or the V1 for my neck and not having to lug the weight of my 60d with lenses.  I also use the battery grip for the 60d, and that adds a lot of weight.
