    MY opinion is that the Nikon N1 J is FAR too expensive for what you get. The price is comparable to a D3100 with the 18-55 lens.

    This is MY opinion only. Your mileage may vary.

    So you would suggest a D3100?

    That is what I wanted to get at in your intro thread...are you a beginner etc... Pete is right the 1 is mighty expensive for what is there but the camera is not for everyone...the 3100 is a fantastic camera...you could also maybe buy a Fuji X Pro 1 which is going to be a showstopper unit I bet...

    It is difficult to give you a good opinion on such general subjects as if this camera is good, bad, or ugly, or whatever without sort of knowing where you are at.

    Yeah, I'm a beginner and I wanted something somewhat portable too

    I would suggest that you get hold of an SD card and go to a camera store and try out the D3100.

    You may hate the feel of it, you may love it, but either way, it needs to fit YOU. I love mine, but thats me.

    I tried out a Nikon 1 around Christmas and I hated the blasted thing! Its just about the right size to be a surf fishing weight, but I don't surf fish!

    I actually liked how the J1 felt. I tried others but not sure how I liked them. However Sony makes one comparable but has better features I've looked at and liked it too.

    You've been looking at NEXs and 1s??? Better take a peak at Fuji because they are kicking everyones @ss in that market...especially with the X Pro...
