please tell me, why would Nikon kill a product line, which contains one of the best selling CSC cameras ?

If something truly sells well, there is no earthly reason to go 50% below msrp on it. Look at the OMD and Nex 7 - that's what flagships are for, to fly your corporate flag. When you dump your flagship in the bargain bin before announcing a replacement, something must be up. I wouldn't buy a N1 for anything over a cheap P&S until the dust settles and there's some indication what the future of the system is.
