Why put out a camera like this with its good features and then use a mediocre lens? Makes no sense to me.
Found out the Nikon V1/J1 lacks exposure simulation live preview (no surprise, neither do their Coolpix dcams or most dSLRs), only their pro dSLRs offer it (D3/D3x/D3s... maybe D4) and 'partially' D5100.
However, G1 X like all PS G's and EOS LV dSLRs do have such sophisticated live exposure simulation preview.
I can only tell you what my eyes see which,I know, is completely subjective. The Sample prints are supurb and they all have a "dimensionality" similar to what I see in my Foveon sensor SD1. That's in the V model.
Where was this picture taken? Beautiful!
