Nikon 1 vs Pentax Q

Some interesting comments.

"I think most of you are looking at this the wrong way. Nikon would not have introduced this system unless they felt there was a real market for it. Though to be honest I feel Pentax got it far more right than Nikon. After using the Q for nine days at New York Fashion Week, I can assure you that it is a little tank of a camera, not a toy. After handling the J1 today I came away feeling like I had just played with a Holga or a Fisher Price camera to be honest. While I think from the tech standpoint Nikon has it’s target well pegged, price wise they are definitely wrong. The Q at 800 while with a smaller sensor, by virtue of feature and build is worth it. It is literally the Swiss Army knife of cameras complete with a fully manual video mode. With the J1 after nearly an hour of use I knew it wasn’t meant for me, hell I couldn’t even figure out how to change ISO on the thing."
