andros2k5: I think 24MP are worthless...- Good lenses hardly reach 1500 lw/ph - Bayer sensors have low-pass filter in front of them- 1,5x smaller photosites caught less light- 1,5x bigger file size means 1,5x slower photo burst
...try put last 16Mp Fuji X-Trans sensor under the hood, it puts in the shame 24Mp full frame D600's one... ;-)
Put the same lens on the 16Mp D5100 with its old Expeed2 processor... or try one similar on a 2010 Pentax K5 (now Pentax K5II has still 16MP)... Megapixel don't let you gain nothing, it's just marketing at those resolution.
@Reillly DiefenbachCan You gently (if you're able) explain me wich advantages you have with a 24MP anti-aliased bayer sensor with 1200-1500 lw/ph lenses over a 16MP sensor ?
@marike6, you're a lucky guy owning both cameras. :-)BTW I was talking about resolution, how many 2500lw/ph lenses do you have ?
Dynamic range color depth and S/N ratio are affected by the light that enters in the diaphram. At the same ISO, aperture and shutter speed, the physical opening of the diaphragm is 1.5 times greater in the case of FF compared to an APS-C, then enter more photons so more light.

vFunct: These cameras scream for Instagram/Facebook/Twitter integration.
Quick snapshots, easy to use, no massive post-processing needed. No one cares about sensor quality anymore since, they're all good enough now.
If they added the Android integration, they could very well compete against the Cell phone cameras with something like this.
All we ask for is a camera with a small sensor, some decent interchangeable lenses, and Instagram integration.
In the professional world, quickest to publish wins!
Could you believe I don't put my photos on FB or twitter nor I use instagram ? And for those who use them 1,2MPx are enough... Very doubtfull professionals use this camera indeed considering the lenses it sports...
Can't understand Nikon 1 line, its all-around lens 10-100 is slow (one of the slowest with it's f4,5-5,6) and as bulky and heavy as the AF-S 18-200 VR... Olympus equivalent is half the weight and a lot smaller (not considering it has o cover a near 2 times larger sensor area).Nikon V1 image quality was far from its mirrorles rival, now we have 16MP, sure we need it ? Perhaps leave it at 10MP and improving IQ would have been a better choice...
Does really not seem so performant, up to ISO-6400 is on par with the 2010's K5 and is one stop away from the Fuji X1-Pro both with a 1.5 times pixel density... Chroma performance at low iso is still worse...
