fberns: Good news.
Among the mirrorless systems, I like MFT best because of the comparatively broad selection of lenses.
Well... I see an affordable, light and good quality prime lens missing, why?
I mean: just a plain normal 25mm with a max aperture of 1.8 or 2.0 for a price of 250 Euro or below. I'm sure that would sell very well...
Come on, Tokina, come on, Tamron! :)

The PL 25 1.4 is an awesome lens (but for the price it better be). I am continuously floored by its performance with respect to my SLR.

Carol Stee: The Nikon 1 V1 is classified as an Entry Level Interchangeable Lens Camera but it isn't. At $899 with a kit lens it is really a Mid Range Interchangeable Lens Camera/DSLR, like the identically priced Nikon D5100 and the Canon T3i/EOS600, or other CSCs such as the Panasonic GX1 for $100 less, and the Panasonic G3 for $200 less. If it were compared with those cameras it would come up short, inferior in IQ and grossly overpriced.

I have that exact configuration (GF3 + 25mm1.4) and find that I use it more than my 50D now. Having a small camera is liberating, but I wouldn't make that switch without having a fast prime (and the associated shallow DOF to go with it).
