now the 1 and the m43 .. you really do get the savings.

even though right now the 1 lags behind .. i do think that Nikon tactically made the better long term "small system" decision because you could carrry a small equivalent system of lenses in a very small kit. no one else can really make that claim.

Nikon 1 seems to be a weird mix of excellence and mediocrity

  • Great on-sensor PDAF & focus tracking
  • Generally excellent lenses
  • Off-puttingly high launch prices and then disturbing price slashing
  • Great electronic shutter and burst (60 fps!!)
  • Dynamic range way worse than 1" Sony sensor in RX100
  • (I hear, I don't have one) Strange UI limitations and choices.

I agree 1" is a good choice for a system camera. I have an RX100 and it has about the IQ I used to get from 35mm film. It is revealing that the DSLR kings (Nikon & Canon) brought out mirrorless options that are mash-ups of the lame and the terrific, and both end up drastically slashing prices to clear stock. Nikon seems to have done a bit better than Canon overall.
