4. One fact about Nikon 1 that tells a lot about the new system - sticking to a 10MP sensor. This is kind of admitting (yet not really admitting) the insanity for pixel chasers. For people who are too sick of large pixel counts, the Nikon 1 offers a very sensible alternative to be against the trend.

The 10MP resolution is on a really small sensor, if the same pixel density were to be used on an aps-c sensor (three times the area) then it'd be 30MP...

So it's actually one of the highest pixel density system cameras ever made.

Nice one.

The fact that a-mount lenses are still worth any money at all is thanks to the success of SLT.
