Nikon. Yeah, yeah, "it seems successful enough to continue", but so does everything else on your list; I wouldn't be surprised if Sony's NEX outsold the Nikon 1 at 10 to 1, yet that's an option and the Nikon ain't. Plus, the fact that the FLC Sony RX100m2 greatly outperforms it for the same sensor size must hurt Nikon, if not now then certainly in the future. Though, I wouldn't be surprised if Nikon followed it with a different mirrorless format afterwards, perhaps with an APS-C sensor like the Coolpix A but the way I see it, there's few chances we'll be seeing new Nikon 1 models ten years from now.

2013 sales data for Japan.

Olympus 29.1%, Sony 26.4%, Panasonic 14.2%, Ricoh imaging 9.8%, 9.34% Nikon, Canon 9.25 percent

While Nikon may (and should) discontinue the 1 series, I don't think anyone will be surprised if they release a different mirrorless camera.

Now that Sony has discontinued the NEX, it will be interesting to see how well their new A mount cameras are received.
