Take a look at the Nikon USA site, http://www.nikonusa.com/en/Nikon-Products/Product/Nikon1/27695/Nikon-1-V3.html, where it clearly shows the FT-1 still being part of the deal. Check dealers as well, not too hard.

ebay sold, $200 and up for new FT-1's, you are correct on approx. $100 for the lens.

Given that I'll change my math, none of this changes the base cost of the body.

Even if you drop the FT1, had Nikon not forced a bundle, please show me how the price is now "too high"?

Once again, show me the comparison where this makes the V3 so out of line price wise with other offerings?

For example, the Olympus E-P5 is $799 body only at Adorama.

It would be nice if you would actually take the time to address the price issue overall, compared to the same "bundle" from the other manufacturers. I just don't see that large a price difference.

I'm also curious about the Fuji XT-1 comparison everyone keeps making. As far as I can tell, the price I keep seeing quoted for the Fuji is body only everywhere I look.
