Nikon V3 modular rival to Oly EM1
Mar 26, 2014

I'm a V1 owner. I won't be rushing in to buy V3 at these prices. I have the D5200 for lightweight moments.

It occurred to me that Nikon is pricing the V3 against the EM1.

On paper, the comparison is viable. The EVF is similar to EM1. 18 versus 16mp. Much better AF and faster frame rate. Faster video frame rate; up to 120 fps at 720p. Etc.

Of course, the EM1 is one stop better in low light (DxO). On the other hand, the smaller sensor means smaller and cheaper lenses.

Of course, MFT has a much bigger native lens selection. On the other hand, N1 can use most AF-S Nikon lenses with some AF.

The interesting feature is its molecularity. You can disassemble the grip and EVF for a pocket camera.

Bottom Line: the technology under the hood is awesome. Nikon continues to push the small form factor. Look forward to a J4 or S2. IMO, the latest N1 will make the EM1 look expensive.

Your thoughts?
