Nikon SLR user, also considering X-T1. Advice?

So i use Nikon and have been an old Canon user but have been very satisfied with the Nikon F100 and now the D700 since a few years back. I shoot mostly outside but also sometimes in studio then using my speedlights and also bringing those to locations from time to time.

As backup or maybe just a compliment i have always had a compact enthusiast compact with me to my travels and using that or let my wife use that while i carry all that Nikon gear around.

I now own the Fuji X20 and before that my LX5 Panasonic. Nowadays i notice i rarely use my X20 even though its a very nice little camera. I find myself not completely satisfied with it and mainly cause of the image quality and that its something in between of a camera than either or. Its either too big to pocket and bring with me or i find i think the quality isnt good enough as a backup for my SLR( which i know it isnt).

So after all those thoughts i am now considering either get a slightly bigger camera as real backup and that i know the image quality will be great. OR get something really small as a fun play camera that i know i can bring in my pocket but im then aware that it doesnt keep up with my SLR at all.

I really like the design and feel of the Fuji system. And from what i have read the X-T1 might be the answer i am looking for.

What are your experience with the camera thus far and what would you recommend?
