Very nice posts above. I like both systems (nikon 1 and M4/3) and own a EM5 and other m4/3 cameras. One thing I like about the V2 is the amount of keepers I get because of focusing accuracy , specially shooting birds near branches, busy backgrounds, etc.  I still feel that in that case M4/3 system is a little behind.

As a birder, having up to a 600mm equivalent in M 4/3 was nice, in a compact package. This was an advantage over other mirrorless systems, but now Nikon, with the announcement of the zoom that will be over 800mm will have the advantage.

Again, as a birder, utilizing my big nikkor lenses on both systems (M4/3 versus 1) , obviously the series 1 beats it, because :

a) M4/3 has a 2x crop, nice but never as nice as a 2.7x crop, more reach is better for me.

b) With Nikon series 1 - I have AF and VR with my Nikkor lenses with the FT-1 adapter, to my knowledge there is no adapter that AF with other lense for either m4/3 or series 1 at this time.

regardless, these are great times !!
