I am trying to decide whether to get the Nikon 1 V2 or the Sony NEX-6. I have done a fair amount of research, but am very interested to hear opinions from this highly-informed group.

I am a serious Nikon user, with a system built around the D300. My main interest is travel and urban documentary photography. However, the older I get, the harder it is to lug around a "brick" all day. Hence, my motivation to get a smaller, lighter camera for those days when my energy level is not what it used to be.

Obviously there are advantages to the V2 since I already own various Nikkor lenses. On the other hand, using one of those with the V2 would defeat the purpose of carrying a smaller, lighter camera, which in turn means that another brand may not be such a disadvantage.

Any "pearls of wisdom" would be gratefully appreciated!
