I am taking a couple of trips later this year and would like to have a camera that is not as bulky as my D3 or D300 with grip. I have been looking at the Nikon V1 and a Fuji X100. However, it has been suggested to me that since I already own a 28-70 AF-S and 80-200 AF-S that perhaps I should buy a D5100. Needless to say I would buy a couple of less conspicuous lenses when going walk-about.

My question is whether or not D5100 users felt that their camera was discreet enough as to not draw undue attention. The V1 and X100 definitely fall into that category. I'll probably run by a BestBuy or Ritz to compare the two.

Thanks
