If you want to use manual focus only.

If you want to use AF then the Nikon V1 is a far superior option because of the availability of affordable, quality, f2.8 zooming AF lenses. You cannot get that with µ4/3.

What affordable f/2.8 zoom lenses are there for the V1? Last I checked, they're all consumer zooms with f/3.5-5.6 variable apertures.

Perhaps he means with the adapter?... not sure, but like you I don't know of any 2.8 native zooms.

He did, indeed, mean "with the FT-1 adaptor."

The FT-1 lets you AF  any AF-S (motorised) lens in both S and C modes now. That's a lot of high grade lens choices once you consider after-market manufacturers.
