dark goob: These are great for video and casual stills. The slowdown feature is really sweet. Different market category than other mirrorless cams, not sure why everyone feels compelled to compare it to OM-D or NEX-7 since they are totally different market segments.

Just because two things are the same price doesn't mean they are directly comparable. Comparing a $30K mini-van and a $30K sedan wouldn't make any sense. They are both vehicles to get you from point A to point B but have different functions, looks, features, and target markets.

andros2k5: 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...

The 10-100mm that you are comparing is mainly for video. For someone like me who doesn't need smooth zooming then yes, it's way too big and expensive. But for me, I just use my 10mm the majority of the time and it's pretty easy to carry the little 30-110mm as well just in case I do need a method of zoom other than my legs.
