Re: the price alone was a blocking factor
In reply to antoineb, May 3, 2014

I like my V1 a lot, I really do. But the simple fact is that if I was walking into a camera store tomorrow with $1,200 odd to spend and I didn't have a specialist need for seriously high FPS rates or wanting long reach at minimal size I would be walking out with something else (can you really get a D7100 and Tamron 150-600 for the same price? that would be a better use of my money...). There are any number of cameras and lenses from all the major manufacturers that would give me more for my money.

While some people can say the camera needs to be considered on its merits regardless of price, in a crowded consumer electronics market (for that is what cameras are really in these days), price is an absolutely essential consideration.
