The strangest thing to me is that these comments are getting thumbs up on a micro four-thirds forum, and virtually no one is even countering it. Shame. I mean it. It really is a shame.

The truth is that micro four-thirds cameras have 1.8x the sensor area of the Nikon 1. This alone makes Nikon 1 uncompetitive.

Wrong. The OP mentioned older generation M43 cameras and when compared, the two are virtually a wash. Please take a look at the GX1 (mentioned) vs the V1 on DXO to measure competitiveness.

But this is irrelevant. m43 looks better than FF when compared to older sensors too. The point is to compare the present IQ of each. When that is done, the result is clear:

FF is to m43 as m43 is to Nikon 1.

So the needs and expressed intent of the OP are irrelevant... ok, got it!

Of course it is relevant. If a poster is considering an older FF and a newer M43, I cannot see how it wouldn't be relevant.
