Re: why not a medium sized camera?

I too am strongly considering the V1, if not to replace a M 4/3 camera, instead of one anyway. Having a built in EVF is one of my requirements over a compact and the image processing looks excellent, making up for any problems in the lens or sensor size. In fact, it has opened my mind to the fact that digital cameras are steadily getting more dependant on electronics and overcoming supposed optical limitations. Panasonic did great things here with their lens corrections and now Nikon and others are following them.

As well as the AF (which I've tried and works wonders), Nikon has their own processing. This could well make up for the smaller sensor and also the co ours will be more similar to what I get from my Nikon DSLRs. That's right- the different look I get from my LX5 is out of harmony with the shots from my Nikon. It could be that this CX mount will let me have a compact Nikon giving me photos with a similar quality, something I've never had before. I'm personally waiting for a price drop and some reviews, though...
