I have a d700 and lenses currently. I wanted to get something that was smaller and lighter, and shot really good video. The problem with the Nikon V series is the sensor is very small, the matching lens selection is limited, and the cameras don't work well, according to reviews
. If you got the Nikon adapter, a 50mm lens would have the same field of view as a 135mm (compared to full frame) DOF control wold be very hard, which may or may not matter to you.

I ended up getting a Panasonic GH3, and a 12-35 f/2.8 lens to start. I also have a nikon adapter, which allows you to use the nikon lenses on the camera
. I think the micro 4/3 systems out there are a much better small camera solution. There is an amazon deal right now for the Panasonic g3 with two lenses for something like $540.00
