I must say, if I had Nikon gear, I probably would have bought one of those cheap Nikon V1s that went on sale recently. That way you could use your legacy lenses for the time being, while waiting for new lens offerings for the Nikon 1 system. Supposedly the autofocus is fast, and tracks, and works well with legacy lenses. And the image quality seems pretty good too; maybe not as good as the OMD, but still pretty good.

I wasn't sure what performance was like with the adapter and I disliked the lack of manual controls on the 1 system.
Also I didn't like that they didn't put a standard hot shoe on it. My SB700 and wireless triggers and 3rd party flashes do not work on it. I can use my Lumopro LP160 on the GX1, as well as my cactus triggers.
