Which? Nikon 1 V/J1 or Sony Rx100

Hi all,

Primary use is by my wife, a teacher, class snapshots etc (she runs school blogs) but also family as we now have two boys (5wks and 3year old). It would mainly live in her handbag mon-fri and communal use w/e. nothing to fussy, easy to pick up and use whilst achieving good results.

We looked at Nikon 1 last year but to expensive then however, these recent price reductions have me interested again now. One problem,  the RX100 is now available, simplicity of design, high IQ (for P&s), pocket ability etc very appealing to me also since I own Oly EP3 and lenses which is now basically a bag system unless using only pancake. the obvious choice is the RX100 since its opposite to my EP3 and would cover all our needs but I can't help considering if the v1/J1 is a better buy. I know the white design appeals to her also and I think she might fall for the Nikon (as long as it was simple to use) over the black Sony ultimately leading to more images?

I have up to £450 to spend and I am happy to do so just want to get the best setup I can for us for the money. This could mean RX100 or V1/J1 plus lenses for example

So which for your money?
