Small metal rangefinder body w EVF, fast AF...

I am surprised so few mention the EVF and fast AF of the V1 as outstanding features. Those are really strong points, the only competitor is the NEX7 if you want a rangefinder like body. However cost and lens size makes the Nex 7 less fitting as a supplementary system IMO.

All the Olympuses and the NEX 3 and Nex 5 needs bulky optional EVFs for the same functionality. And the AF of the V1 is probably the best.

I've seen enough. The innovative new features, the image quality from the samples we've seen so far on various web sites and the works for me.

For me, this will be my in-between camera. At the moment the GH2 is my in-between camera. I'll be using it mostly on family trips when I don't want to lug my D700 and when my LX5 isn't good enough. I see enough Sure, I know this is not for everyone, but for me, I think it will work out great. I'm putting my 4 month old GH2 w/14-140mm up for sale to pay for the Nikon V1 kit with the 10mm f/2.8 and 10-30mm. Looking forward to it
