Had a chance to test it out for a day. Like you, I mainly use cameras for my family and two young kids, the 5200 just couldn't cut it. I had the Nikon J1 at that time and it outperformed the 5200 in terms of AF speed - I was very surprised.

JI outperformed than 5200 hmm...

J1 have smaller sensor than Micro Four Thirds?

Yes, it has a crop factor of 2.7x...tiny...and the reason why many despise the Nikon 1 system - but the AF speed is so, so good and the images are pretty good too!

The only downside for me is that it struggled with low light shots and the inbuilt flash just doesn't cut it...cue the OMD!

I like the Nikon 1. I'm not interested in buying one, but who can't have a soft spot for a camera with super fast focus and 60FPS burst mode.'s gear's gear list
