The reason why the Nikon series 1 works well despite all the blah blah blah....

well lets look at the system closely... it has an af System that is as fast and sometimes faster

then that of the D4.....

it has a frame rate that is faster and also much faster then that of the D4......

it is quieter in silent mode then the D4...(classic concerts)

it has less shutter shock (in case of electronic shutter none at all)and NO Vibration of a mirror

then a D4......

it has good lenses....

it has wider and more af points then a D4.....

and now comes the most discussed point the sensor.....

since the sensor is of an 2.7x crop advantage it can take smaller lenses and focal lengths

to obtain same angle of view....

BUT !!!!!

in order to obtain the same low light you would need faster lenses.....

and here is the catch you have to compare the corresponding apertures and iso´s....

if you mount a 70-200mm with 2.8 its like mounting a 189-540mm with an aperture of 6.3......

in that case the camera needs more then 2.5 less iso stops to obtain the same results...also in dof...

While you work with 400 iso on the v2 or v3 you would need almost 3200 iso on the D4...

thats how you must compare......and the quality of both cameras considered this fact arent very far apart...... I know because I work with both series 1 and D4....

working with 18.5mm at 1.8 is like working with 50mm at f4 and having the v2 at 400 iso

and the D4 at almost iso 3200......

Thats the reason why on paper the series 1 doesnt look good but on paper the results are

stunning....

You just dont have the options of thin dof that you have on FF... and yes with fast prime lenses

in low light the FF cameras are still stunning.....but hey at what size disadvantage !
