Der Steppenwolf: A big, expensive camera with tiny sensor....After 4 years of development this is what Nikon came up with!
It is just sad to see Nikon fail in such huge manner.

Do you have some kind of inside information on sales statistics?

taotoo: "Sensor 2/3rds the size of Nikon DSLR sensor".

This is wrong surely?

Yes, that should be: "approx. 1/3 the area of an APS-C sensor, and 1/2 the area of an m43 sensor".

zxaar: comparisons with Q are conspicuously missing. Are reviewers afraid that Q would kick N1 ass in size department. Wouldn't it be far to put all the other options (NEX, samsung,Q) also on table for others to see how they compare in size, after all reduction in size is what they are trying to achieve at the cost of image quality (to different degrees).

The "Q" has a smaller sensor than my P&S Canon (and it's about as tiny). I'm sorry, but the "Q" will, for obvious reasons be compared with high end P&S. Not DpReview's fault, but Pentax', for having put a microscopic sensor in an otherwise somewhat interesting camera.

Ingloryon: Can anybody tell me why should I buy a compact camera which is as expensive and not-that-compact-with-lenses as reflex cameras?

Expensive? Well, why this constant comparing with the V1, then? The J1 is $649, including the 10-30 lens. The V1 seems to have features not present in e.g. the m43 offerings it's usually compared with (EVF, high-quality LCD, usable AF, etc).

al porfido: The camera is a joke, if Nikon were serious they would have had 24 mega pixels, if they were joking, 14 mega pixels, but 10 mega pixels?
Come on this is a$99.00 toy camera!

Toy camera? It should fit your needs perfectly, then...

CameraLabTester: It's like putting the power of Formula 1 inside an AMC Gremlin or Ford Pinto.

Whatever you do, don't tell YOUR "(future) wife/gf" that you're actually comparing her to a camera...

My cameras are tools, not a fashion statement.

Camp Freddy: Nikon fanboys had better hope spending serious cash on better lenses improves the performance: sharpness, contrast, gradation/tonal depth are all struggeling against the g12 and XZ1. mFT is far better.

Also launching a camera with such poor ISO performance in the ILC sector now is just plain dumb.

When "Nikon fanboys" need serious performance and high ISO, they understand that it's time to tuck away their pocket camera, and use their DX/FX DSLRs.

The concept of "using the right tool for the job" seems utterly lost on lots of people in this thread...

In reply to:

bryanbrun: If the Nikon V1 had a F2.0 kit lens that allowed for DOF control, then it might have a chance.

The Nikon kit lens is 10-30mm at 3.5 max aperture on a tiny little sensor. This is weak, weak, weak.

Who wants to spend $900 dollars on a camera and end up with a grand total of 20mm field of view control with an aperture of 3.5 which allows for no DOF control?

No one. There is no market for the Nikon V1.

Nikon needs to release a real kit lens, without it the camera can't even compete with XZ-1, LX5, so just forgot about competing with the artistic control that the m4/3 and NEX allow.

Why do people expect Nikon to release everything that's ever going to be available in the new 1-system, from day one already? Give it some time, there are several lenses in the pipeline as we speak. Plus the fact that some DX/FX lenses will work out VERY nicely on a Nikon 1.

And, about those $899: as long as we're compairing with cameras like the GF3 ($599), the NEX-C3 ($649), and the E-PL3 ($699), they should really be compared to the J1 and not the V1. The J1 is also $649. Go figure...

Carol Stee: The Nikon V1 costs $200 to $300 more than the 'peers' it is compared with. With a kit zoom the prices are:
Nikon V1 $899
Panasonic GF3 $599
Sony NEX-C3 $649
Olympus E-PL3 $699
It can't compete with similarly priced cameras:
Olympus E-P3 $899
Panasonic GH2 $999
Nikon D5100 $899
Canon T3i $899
Or even cameras costing $200 less:
Sony NEX-5N $699
Panasonic G3 $699
Which shows that it is ridiculously overpriced.

At least, the V1 seems to have an AF-system, that doesn't make DSLR users cry with frustration...

The V1 actually holds up VERY well against the larger sensor competition.

Would like to see the results with a really good lens, like the 35/1.8 DX, the Micro 40/2.8 DX or -- why not -- the 50/1.4

And kudos to Nikon for not participating in the megapixel race. 10MP is (more than) enough for this kind of camera.
