I think it feels much cheaper than the 1 series, but I liked the LCD. The AF is very sluggish (also compared to the V1 I had with me in the same lighting conditions).

Let's hope Nikon make it better on the next iteration, especially AF and built. I wouldn't mind it being a bit larger, thicker, sturdier, with a faster lens.

Did you also compare IQ with the 1 series?

I didn't need to, I have the D7000, which would be similar in IQ. I know the difference, and I would be a owner if only the AF were faster. For many situations the V1 is enough, especially trips, otherwise I can use the D7000. I can see someone liking it, but it's still a sluggish compact.
