me too. it doesn't have to be an x100 clone. but there is a reason 'retro' cameras are back. the style and the analog contols are timeless.

That would be a dream wouldn't it

The fact is that the Nikon 1 system wasn't developed from the start to be like this, the lenses don't even have a focus ring, let alone a aperture ring. I think that the 1 system was intended to work on a more automated fashion. And this isn't necessarely bad, just different approaches to usability experince. I have a Fuji X100 and a V1 – two extremes regarding usability – and I have fun with both.
