"Not so compact" Nikon COOLPIX P5100 & P6000

Every now and then I wish I have a compact camera for those special occasions. Having been searched around, I have my eyes on the COOLPIX P5100 and P6000 from Nikon. The Canon G9 and G10 are also very nice, but not at that price.

While compact cameras suppose to be compact in size, they can be "not so compact" as well.
COOLPIX P5100 + URE20 + TC-E2 + SB-400
COOLPIX P5100 + TC-E3 + SB-800
Lens attachments: TC-E3ED, Micro, Wide and adaptors.
