Re: Micro Four Thirds and Nikon 1 system similar size
In reply to jeffharris, Jun 30, 2013

Just to add an observation from today. I was doing some macro shooting at the Brooklyn Botanical Garden with my GH2 and Nikon 60mm and 105mm lenses. (Overcast, perfect!) My girlfriend was using my GX1 and new PZ14-42mm lens.

Anyway, I saw a woman with a Nikon 1 camera and a long-ish zoom. The camera seemed to be exactly the same size as my GX1 and the lens looked like the size of the Panasonic 45-175mm. So much for the smaller size of the Nikon 1 system… with a much smaller sensor!
