Hello, I own a Nikon D750 and am quote happy with it, but it's a while I've been thinking about buying a small camera, a mirrorless, to get along lighter.
My choice is between the 2 of them because I could also mount my Nikon lenses and take advantage of the crop factor.
In this case the 1 J5, having a 2.7 sensor, would do better than the A5100's aps 1.5 sensor, but on the contrary I am afraid it can produce more noise.
Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Fabrizio


Nikon D750 - Nikon D7200 - Nikon S33 - Olympus Om10 Mark II
Nikkor, Sigma, Zuiko and PanaLeica lenses.

I would probably go with the Sony just because the Nikon 1 series has not been as popular as other mirrorless offerings, and seems to have less support from Nikon (fewer lenses, slower release cycle)

Also, rumors that it may be ending, which would mean no more new lenses/accessories in the future:
