Functions and Features

... The EM10, ..., tilting rear screen and wi-fi. The wi-fi in itself is a lovely feature, permitting wireless control of the camera and upload of images onto a smartphone or tablet.

Viewfinder and Image Review

....The touch screen of the EM10 also makes image review, scrolling and zooming a much easier task, similar to viewing images on a smartphone.

Buffer and Continuous Shooting

The V2 is the better option here by a long, long margin. The EM10 has 3.5fps with autofocus and can sustain that for about 10-15 RAW frames before slowing down. It can achieve 8fps with focus locked on the first exposure. The V2 can just blow this away with 15fps with autofocus or up to 60fps with focus locked on the first exposure.

Shutter and Image Stabilisation

The EM10 only has a mechanical shutter and the tactile vibration from this is noticeable when holding the camera. ...

I do not see any sense to compare the new EM10 with old Nikon1 models!

Those things that you like on EM10 you will get now with the V3 which is the real competitor. All in all I see more advantages for the Nikon1 system, especially the V3.

I like an EVF and bounce flash. I like wireless flash.

I don't like clip on EVFs. That was one of the things that drew me to the V1 and V2.

I like an AF-on button and decoupling the AF from the shutter release.
Have Fun
