Which would you choose? V1 @ $200 or V2 @ $500
Feb 2, 2014

As the subject says...

Both cameras brand new, both including the 10-30 kit lens (can get the V1 with the 10mm kit for $250). I originally wanted the V2 for the flash, grip, and general ergonomics - but at that price difference I'm not sure anymore.

If it makes any difference I usually shoot in shutter priority (to get the blur or isolation I want), adjusting ISO as needed with the aperture wide open (yes I meant shutter priority - things like if I wanted a hummingbird's wings frozen or blurred).

Your opinions are appreciated.

For you US folks - Nikon canada is listing the V2 @ $499, with today's exchange rate would make it about $450 USD - no clue why US pricing is still so high.
