Who knows? Nikon is thinking ahead. The cam phone generation likes to take the camera everywhere and take pics of everything they see. That's a good thing. I am impressed that Nikon (and others) recognize this trend. They think this could be a pretty large market to enter for their lens business. People usually want to move up.

Also, as more people found dslrs affordable they also started to realize that they aren't using them on vacation because of the size and weight. As for me, light weight and portability is very attractive, assuming IQ is decent.

I think the other mirror less and Nex type cams have ungainly lenses which end up being big and heavy for long reach. As for price, well they have some advanced tech, and they are Nikons, and I think they even look very cool. Time will tell. Nikon took a calculated risk toward a new kind of market.
