Re: Leaving Nikon 1 - alternative to Nikon J5 for sports?

Just a quick update on my quest for the holy grail. I looked at the EM1 and Sony a6x00 but, together with the matching lenses, they start to be really much bigger than a Nikon 1 kit. I was also reluctant to get into yet another system since I intend to keep my Nikon DSLR as my main action camera and stick to Leica M for the rest.

Since I already have a RX100 II for lightweight travel photography, I decided to test the Mk VI. If it turns to be competent for action photography, I’ll sell the MkII, its EVF and my Nikon 1 system. I should be able to recoup a big part of the cost, even if I still think the price of the VI is extravagant for a compact.
