Opinions needed on a secondary camera

I'm thinking on a Nikon P7100, around $400 till tomorrow at B&H. I want to stay within the Nikon brand, as it shoots RAW in comparison to other P&S cameras. However a monkey wrench was thrown my way when I went out this past weekend to look at the P7100 locally... I was also shown the Nikon 1 (both the J1 & V1). However for the J1, a couple of lenses and the adapter your looking at close to $800, with the V1 being even more. Now carrying my D700 around all the time is just not practical, there are places I wouldn't want to leave it sitting around as it's just too big and obvious a target. And if I start down the road of interchangeable lenses on the Nikon 1 I've pretty much eliminated the small carry in your pocket camera idea.


So throw me some ideas on this? Is the P7100 a decent camera or a problem? Whats the 1 series like in the real world? I know there not D700's by any stretch of the imagination, but I'm not looking for another D700, just something to cary around that takes very good quality photos that I can work with as opposed to JPEG's.

Thank you,

Hugh
