...with 10-30mm kit zoom. Heck of a deal. Probably means V1 2 is on the way soon.

Got for $382 shipped on E-bay. Guess prices will go even down. I used it for the first time this weekend (they don't even display in stores - just the J1's!!!) and I tell you, it at least beats the Olympus E-PL1 picture quality that I bought 2 years ago. Don't even want to compare the AF. All in all, it makes sense to buy it at this cheap if you have Nikkor lens inventory.

It made sense to us that had the money to buy it at the higher price a year ago.

Hurry up, only one left for that price...

No, there won't be a V2, but the price of V1 is going up due to the fact that the speculations about the V2 is now confirmed BS, so now they are no longer afraid about getting stuck with a lot of V1s on stock.

Exactly. One can always wait for prices to drop but in that case one will miss the joy of having it brand new and using it from the start.

I got my V1 at the beginning of summer and in Canada, the prices haven't really changed. In fact, I still don't think it is possible to beat my 10mm kit deal with a free SB-N5 flash thrown in.

But even if the price had dropped a lot, I'd have no regrets. The memories it captured with my partner on our hikes and bike trips are priceless - she triggers the infra-red remote while I hold the camera out on a monopod-type stick. As far as I know, there is no other mirrorless camera that is light enough to make this practical while being able to be triggered remotely and still capture near dSLR quality images.

For me, my picture taking count drops off towards winter, so I'd be less inclined to purchase a new camera at this time of the year..

You got that right. My picture taking count falls off a cliff in winter

So, I am very happy that I got my V1 in March (for a pretty decent price actually) and had the pleasure of using it in the spring and all summer. So the price of it now doesn't matter much to me (although I am interested in knowing why they are discounting it in places so much).

Cheers,

Wayne

Now Amazon is back up to $499, matching Adorama's new price.  The fire sale appears to be over (although $499 is still an excellent price).

OK, so where is the V2?

The price of the V1 kit dropped during Photokina because people were speculating about the V2. It is for me obvious that Nikon did not release any V2 and that the prices went up again. Of course, not to the same level as it was a year ago, which is fully normal, but it is not falling like a stone and is not been replaced. Of course, one day it will be replaced by something else but my guess is that it won't happen very soon. Anyway, the current price is $489.80 according to that link above.

Well it was only ever speculation that a V2 would arrive at Photokina.    NR is extremely reliable when they state a definite release date for something and Photokina was never it for the V2.

Whatever happens happens. I have done my shopping for this year, so I won't be interested. I am happy with the V1 as it is and don't really need a new version.
