Sell me on a J1.
Jul 24, 2013

Recently found a lightly used Nikon J1 and 2 lenses for a VERY attractive low price.  Since I'm looking for some smaller( mirrorless) system to replace my DSLR gear, I naturally looked twice at the offer for the J1.  However, after reading comments , it seems to be getting mixed reviews at best.  So I'd like to hear from those having actual experience with this camera.  The good, the bad, and especially the ugly.  What's to like and what's to hate?

I hope I can get some responses quickly; as that fantastic deal won't last forever, if I would decide to take the plunge.  Thank you.
