Nikon 1 J1 & V1
The Nikon J1 & V1 are Nikon's first foray into the mirrorless system market. The cameras sport extremely fast frame-rates and auto-focus speeds, and should prove useful for casual users who want to shoot unpredictable subjects (like kids!). Both shoot at 10MP, the J1 comes with a built-in flash, while the V1 has no flash but does have a built-in electronic viewfinder.
(If you want to know the 35mm equivalent focal length of the kit lenses, multiply the value by 2.7, e.g. the 10mm lens is approx. 27mm in 35mm equivalent.)

Users looking for a prosumer DSLR camera combining performance in a compact package need look no further.

Enthusiasts looking for a model with more manual controls than the D5100 can take a look at the Nikon D7000 (review), retailing for $2149 (with 18-105mm kit lens) at Sitex.
