I’m tired of waiting for the D400! Should I get a D7100 or a V3?

Chris says… You say you want something fast and light, which can shoot at seven frames per second, and uses your existing lenses. The D7100 shoots at six frames per second and doesn’t have a very impressive buffer. The Nikon 1 V3 can shoot at 20 frames per second, and is much lighter than a D-SLR. However, to use your lenses with it you will need an FT-1 adaptor (£199/$240). Given the 2.7x crop factor of the V3, I think it ticks all the boxes, though the new crop factor and different controls may take a bit of getting used to.
Russell wants to replace his D300 for wildlife photography – but which lightweight option will be most suitable?
