I haven't been following the V1 since shortly after it came out, but it went from $900 to $376 in less than a year. That has to be some sort of a record. In fact, it seems to be selling now for less than the J1. What the heck happened? Is there something wrong with the camera? As a Nikon D7000 user I'm considering getting the camera with the converter to see how my lenses look with a 2.7 crop factor.

most probably because it does not have the built in flash, and for point and shooter upgraders..that would be important than an EVF...
although I am a DSLR user and want a fast and responsive compact camera (if there is a point and shoot that has both Phase detect contrast detect like the Nikon 1 cameras.. i would have chosen THAT point and shoot but none exists as of today) and hence I bought the J1 (refurbed)..only because it has a built in flash.. in my mind.. I will only use the J1 for family pics and parties..i needed something small and responsive.....

plus 1 on the flash issue.  Did the exact same thing.
