P8000 / Nikon1-F1 future RX100/EX2F/LX7 Killer?
Jul 26, 2012

I just wanted to say... now that Nikon has a 1" sensor, I can't help but wonder if they are going to leverage that into a replacement for the P7100...

The P8000 (or Nikon1 F1 (F for fixed zoom lens), could have the same 1" sensor, lots of dials (like the P7100), be more on the size of an RX100 or LX7, have a fast lens that is faster at full zoom than the RX100... longer zoom... (say, 7X, with f1.4-f3.5) and they would OWN the category of the compact enthusiast cameras!

It would totally be a category-killer!

I hope they do it, and don't consider it to obsolete teh J1/V1, which do, after all, have their place... if those don't succeed, it woun't be because of the P8000 but because of similar-sized interchangeable lens cameras with an APS-C sensor instead.
