I'd like to get a setup for long reach purposes for nature hikes. I could get a Panasonic 100-300 for my EPL1, or a Nikon V1 and FT1 adapter for my Nikon 70-300. Anyone have any opinions regarding which would result in better image quality or better handling?

Why not buy a lens adaptor from Rainbow Imaging for your Nikon lens and try that?

Interesting idea!  I assume VR wouldn't work though, and manual focus would be required, which at the long end is likely to be tough.
