ChrisKramer1: Man, I'm really confused now. I don't like the look of any of this mirrorless stuff. But I still want a camera that's smaller than my DSLR. I was going to get a GXR but then there's the dust problem and there's doubts about its future. I was hoping Nikon would get it right but the sensor is so small and the lenses are so big and the price is so high. Canon, where are you?

*cough Fujifilm X100*

Ivanaker: new 40mm dx macro will be 105mm macro eqv, with larger dof, and there fore larger apertures could be used.

dont just bash this camera, nikon has some really great lenses to complement with this thing.

I dont like it much, ill stick to my d7k, but this camera and its 2.7x crop could show some interesting stuf. 300mm f/2.8 becoming 800 2.8, and with 2x extender 1600 f/5.6. that is just great.

why it have to be in the place in the industry? because it's Nikon? Nikon couldn't failed did they? It's depend on what you called it. Just like Epson RD1 or Contax N1, they didn't failed, right, only once has a place in the industry :)

Zvonimir Tosic: Nikon 1 and Pentax Q are not aimed at GWCs who populate there forums. (GWC = Guy With a Camera). GWCs can't get the logic behind these systems for they don't get there are people who are NOT concerned about the sensor size, but want something new and more convenient. And here's new.
Nikon explored the unknown part of the sensor landscape. And that is a worthwhile attempt. Similarly, Pentax explored another sensor & form factor option no one did. That is worthwhile too.
But I can't dismiss Nikon 1 as a nonsense for it is not, and because both Pentax Q and Nikon 1 are a glimpse into the future. Both systems are not for GWCs but for normal people who enjoy photography. GWCs don't enjoy it, because they are constantly intimidated by specs, which to them are the alpha & omega of their understanding of the aesthetics of the picture. And that understanding of aesthetics is only further mutilated to a mere mechanics of it.

probably their market (pentax q and nikon 1) are young girls and alike. :)

RobG67: Have any of you whingers used a Canon S95? Excellent image quality, even from a small sensor. Give the Nikon a chance, it may prove to be better than you naysayers expect. Yes, it's somewhat unpreposessing to look at, but are you photographers or fashion victims?

For mine, if the image quality is good, and the price is right (I live in Australia, so it'll be insanely over-priced, which means one of the big US shops might get my money), AND if it shoots NEF files, I'll be in it. I'm tired of swapping between converters to process RAW.

So how about the lot of you shut the h.e.l.l. up and wait for the results to come in. I know I'm waiting for real reviews before I condemn it.

And you should consider other product that has already released such as Fujifilm X100 that succeed to awe the market, even if that's still a niche one. And also for its little brother X10. X10 has a lot positive reactions with it smart choice of style, size, sensor size and lens.

because, if you can't win in image quality (because of small sensor, slow lens, high noise etc), at least you could win on product design (retro look or whatever to trigger emotional attachment). This V1 and J1 has none of those. Arguably, this design not toward those who emotionally like retro for nostalgia shake, but its more to "girly/barbie/toyish" image. I bet this would sold out in Japan, at least in Shinjukus and Ginzas yuppies.

cheddargav: I'm not usually one for over-reacting to this stuff, but the lenses they've announced leave me massively disappointed.

This actually starts to make the Pentax Q look alright... what a shame. Fingers crossed this pudding tastes better than it looks

Pentax Q system starts to look decent and "compact" :)

absentaneous: cameras look good. specifications are fine too. the 10Mpix are not too impressive but it's perfectly enough unless you wanted to print really large. now we need to see what this system is capable of in real life. if the image quality was on pair with the larger sensor cameras at least at lower ISO then I see no reason why not consider them especially if the price will be competitive as well.

nope, iso 400 is fine but not perfect with grainy, imagine that grain on 10MP (look for youself on nikon website). And this is 900 USD camera after all.

magneto shot: well a sensor of 1" might be smaller than 4/3 but bear in mind that means the Image quality is better than any enthusiast compact u have seen including S95 and lx5.

1" is bigger than 1/1.8

no?

fail, in that price point :) but not if in the same price range :)

olyflyer: How did the designers think when they started to draw this camera? It is utterly ugly, the flash is a mediocre solution, the LCD panel is fixed and has very low resolution.

Hopefully it takes stunning images. Combined with excellent high ISO characteristics and the ability to fully use the F-mount G lenses it can be a good second body, replacing high end P&S like the Canon "G" series and the Nikon "P", but only for those who also have Nikon DSLRs. Lower price is of course necessary since at this high price... NEX and Panasonic are better alternatives.

In other words, I'll wait before I dismiss this camera and call it a failure. We better wait for proper reviews first.

look at the sample on nikon website (japan version), nope, iso 400 is useful but grainy.

no?

the question is in what price and in what size. Arguably pocketable, the body + zoom lens is with similar size with other system that use bigger sensor, and cheaper. So?

puffo25: Hi all, I know it is early to ask but if you are a semi-pro photographer and need this kind of Micro Four Thirds system camera, considering to go for bigger sensor and top quality, along with very fast images/second, which brand and model you would consider at first?

1. Olympus Pen- EPL-3?
2. Samsung NX10?
3. Panasonic GF3?
4. Sony Nex-5?
5. Nikon V1?

Any suggestion is VERY welcome!

btw,Nikon V1 is not Four Thirds camera. Its sensor only 1 inch size.
Samsung NX-10 is APS size sensor camera, so do NEX system.
Four Thirds is a lens mount system based on 4/3 sensor which has half the size of full frame sensor/film.

er, actually only two of them are 4/3 camera. But I would suggest NEX-5N (the new one not the old one), since it has wonderful video and the lowest noise on high iso on that list. just compare the noise yourself on imaging-resource page, I dare you to compare the noise from NEX 5N to Nikon D3s :)

armen: Nikon made a smart move here, much like Olympus and Panasonic did when they introduced 4/3rds years ago.
In this digital age, small and portable always wins over big and unwieldy.

This debate reminds me of how 35mm film dominated even though it was inferior in image quality to medium or large format film.
There was simply no arguing the benefit of a portable camera.

The difference today however, is that film resolution remained static for decades.
This is not so with digital sensors, now the limiting factor has become lens resolution.
And if I understand correctly small lenses can be made more precisely and at lower cost than large lenses.

So when these small sensors improve their low light and video capabilities there will be no advantage to larger sensor formats.
Image quality will simply become a mute point for 98 percent of the population.
When that happens what will happen to the DSLR production?

Manufactures all better be on board with a reasonably small form factor.

sub F.10? try design that (small sensor size) lens and we would give you Nobel Prize LOL

If you want pocketable digicam, this ain't it. There's plenty out there such as S95/S100, or Nikon/Fujifilm/Olympus counterparts, BUT this system is SMALL FORM FACTOR DIGICAM.

While Nikon and Pentax choice to use small size sensor on their small form factor digicam, Sony manage to brought "traditional" APS size sensor on its small form factor digicam (as also Samsung). Just look at the lenses. The smaller system lenses and the APS mirrorless lenses (and also micro 4/3) not very different in size and weight, because you just can't denied physic law. You can produce smaller lens but you'll lose light and range, and visa versa. So who'll win, those who have image quality. And those who have image quality has better sensor. Better sensor + bigger sensor.

Photato: LOL !
Damned if you do, damned if you don't !!

Many people that have tried APS-C mirrorless have come to the realization that is kind of pointless when you add a zoom lens, because it ends up being almost as large as a DSLR.

Then Nikon tried to solve that by offering this more balanced approach based on a medium size sensor and all that you hear is fan boys whining.

Jizz! PEOPLE GET A GRIP !!!

still drunk that kool aid huh ..
just look at those lenses! they bulky as hell. Is that what you call small, pocketable lenses? and to think that it's in small sensor system is laughable at best. So tell me, which would you choose, an APS sensor size arguably pocket camera or 1 inch sensor size arguably pocket camera? jezz nikon fanboy!

right *cough*, read comments below first.
There is no debate here. It's absolute rubbish (Nikon 1 system, not you of course)
Full frame still the king no matter you want to put in. The medium format still the god no matter what. You just can't denied physic principles, which by that what I mean is DOF, bokeh, low light iso sensor etc.

CameraLabTester: Ho Hum
Yet another camera maker trying to set ANOTHER STANDARD from the many many standards out there...
As if the camera market hasn't been flooded with supposedly "NEW" things...

NOTHING IS NEW... from Canon, Nikon etc, because these are all MARKETING HYPE.

The 4/3 system is BETTER, because it is an OPEN SYSTEM. You can mount ANY Lenses from the major brands such as Canon, Nikon, Olympus, Pentax etc on the 4/3 system by using a CHEAP adapter...

what he means about OPEN SYSTEM is that it's free for any producer/manufacture/brand to employ it on their system. That's why it's not owned just by one brand (Olympus) but share to many brands. Try that to EOS system or F-mount, you just can't produce auto focus lens for them without reverse engineering and probably some license fee.
