I have a V1, it's an excellent camera. Monikers like "serious product" don't do much for me. I suppose you mean the sensor, but for a person like me serious means a viewfinder (V1), PDAF ability or very fast CDAF (V1, M43) and great IQ (not so much V1)...

In my view the Nikon 1 lens lineup is not good enough, especially for telephoto. Especially given fast AF it would be a good birding camera, if it had appropriate lenses.

Dynamic range is poor, especially with all the blown highlights. Can't see the sense in Nikon 1 models when my EXR P&S does a better job of preserving highlights. I have been visiting the Nikon 1 forum and find this problem to be a show-stopper for me.

Maybe I'll be an AW1 nonetheless...
