Ehh. It was a grabby title. I'm more looking for answers to those oddball questions Regarding functionality of the touchscreen, auto ISO, and EVF Systems. The online camera reviews generally don't go into minutia of that sort so I'm asking actual users.

ill make my own decision for sure, but need the facts before I can judge the value in upgrading.

IF nikon were to release a V3 that fixed all of my gripes with the V1, I would be first in line. Unfortunately it seems Nikon is more interested in releasing more cool pix P&S, underwater N1, and DX entry dslr than improving the V series for enthusiast use. I'm hedging my bet that nikon does not release a V3 at the upcoming Asia camera industry show, and instead announces that the CX sensor line of cameras will only be continued for the J series and compact P&S lines. No fancy new lenses, no enthusiast bodies.

Based on this I'd say that m4/3 has (most of) what you want now, Nikon might do it in the future. In the meantime, you're left with your V1, waiting for it to die.
