vshin: It's funny how a 2/3" sensor for $600 is "reasonable" but a smaller camera with a 1" sensor and interchangeable lens for $650 is highway robbery.
X10 seems aimed at enthusiast and DSLR users alike.Almost no DSLR user - I am one - will want to dive into yet another camera (Nikon 1) system, even if it's from the same manufacturer.
Been at the Nikon presentation on the 21st. While the cameras are cute, it seems to me, mainly from the presentation slides that it's been thought (?) to fill a niche on a graph (sic). Period. None of the pro's and the enthusiast (including me) photographers present there were impressed beyond the 'cute and fluffy' point. The others appeared to be slightly more interested, but they were from the 'dunno much about cameras but to push the button' crowd with $ to spare.I for one, if&when will look for a mirorless camera I'll lean towards Oly/Panny, Sony (24 mpx/APS-C = brr) or even Samsung. Even compacts like X10 or S100 are way more appealing to me.But don't mind me, i just spent a few hours toying around with a X100 yesterday and fell in love. IF it had interchangeable lenses, it would have been absolutely perfect. As it is, it's only great.IMO if Nikon would have replaced D3100 with a single compact mirorless APS-C model they would have had my full attention.
Location appears to be the 'old town' area downtwn Bucharest, Romania which is undergoing a very slow restoration process.
