Day #1 - Recap - Nikon V2
I hope Nikon will listen to you.
Personally I would prefer to have articulated LCD also but I am sure there are a bunch of people who don't want one.
The price does not bother me. I know how to wait and most mirrorless cameras prices have been dropping up to 50% within 1-2 years (Nikon J1, V1, Olympus EPL2, EP2, EPM1, Sony 5N, Panasonic G2F etc). I may get a V2 body for christmas in 2013 for under $500 ...
ps. I truly believe photography as a hobby is defined by the pleasure you get from the activity. It does not matter what equipment or results. I am a hobbyist and a very awful photographer (snapshooter is a better name) but a very happy one.
