Re: Nikon V1 - I would buy one (if I had not bought mFT)

The perception that interchangeable lenses mean better image quality is deeply enrooted in most of us. The average customer will see a Nikon interchangeable camera with a nice short and long lens kit, and the sales-rep will have very hard time trying to explain why the one with Nikon on it might be a tad worse than the one with Panasonic on it. If they even bother to try, as for them, a sale is a sale. More likely they'll just point out that it has all these cool modes and come in all kinds of colors.

But do these average folks understand the advantage of interchangeable lenses? And are they willing to carry around 2 or 3 extra lenses? If not, and they're only going to use one lens on the camera, why not buy a fixed-lens one? If they want interchangeable lenses, and are willing to deal with carrying several, I don't see them as 'average folks' so far as their photography is concerned.
