I am always surprised that you never seem to mention Nikon 1 cameras or show the results of anyone using these cameras. I like them as I get older and more decrepit, since they are very easy to carry around in my pocket.
Despite their poor specs on paper, the photos from them look great, especially if you tweak them in programs like Photoshop. Due to the small sensor there is not a lot of room for cropping, so a photographer needs to concentrate on obtaining a strong composition, which is a good thing for me.
One advantage of the Nikon 1 system is the rapid frame rates of up to 60 frames per second, which some pros take advantage of with DX or full-frame telephoto lenses attached to get action shots of birds in flight or sports.
