Zvonimir Tosic: Why not GF4? They've had GF3, now GF5. Is the 4 unlucky number?
Panasonic also issued GX1. All basically same, little cameras. Or they are not that same?
What Panasonc actually tries to do with their lineup, if there's such thing at all? Or they've simply decided to stop worrying about actual sense of their offer and plague the market, every month, with anything they can think of.

But nikon is brave :-) they have the nikon D4 :-)

Hugo808: Just had a go on one in a local shop, very nice in all respects except the autofocus is way too slow. Bit silly of Fuji not to have that rather important aspect sorted out as it renders it pointless for what I'd buy it for (weddings) so I'll stick to my SLRs, shame as it's a lovely toy with obviously good IQ.

to gonfig..

nowadays, a decently fast enough AF lock is needed for those candid wedding photos.. unlike back in the manual days of shooting , it was more documenting the wedding day.. everything is mostly posed..

the style of wedding photography nowadays have changed...

The question that comes to mind from an ignorant person about astrophotography.. Can one use this as a regular camera?

i wonder if nikon can make one lens like that? at least equiv. 30mm (after the 1.5 lens factor) so a 20mm pancake? :-) hmmm yum :-)

Digital Suicide: My next digital will be mirrorless. But not yet. These cameras still needs to be improved technically and in price, so I'm tend to wait a little.

I think the olympus OM-D EM5 is your best bet or a panasonic GH2...

johnparas11zenfoliodotcom: thank goodness for adapters- I will just use my Nikon lenses.. to get the same focal length :-) but then again maybe for $150 or $99-- yeah I will get one :-)

oh yeah I figured that much :-) saving money by not buying this or convenience.. of having a small lens :-)

In reply to:

Aero Windwalker: Where is the vertical grip?

I was trying to imagine holding it vertically, if the bottom of the camera had some sort of protruding small grip....maybe it would enhance the user experience or using the second shutter button?

psn: As long as they don't pull a Sigma SD-1...

Somehow I doubt the camera will look and feel anything like the old OM-4. I'd buy it in a heartbeat if it does, specially with the same OM mount.

i have 1 Nikon FM2n Black body and 1 Nikon FM2n Silver/Chrome body.. I will never sell them, even just for nostalgia's sake..besides they will work even without batteries..

In reply to:

Carol Stee: The Nikon 1 V1 is classified as an Entry Level Interchangeable Lens Camera but it isn't. At $899 with a kit lens it is really a Mid Range Interchangeable Lens Camera/DSLR, like the identically priced Nikon D5100 and the Canon T3i/EOS600, or other CSCs such as the Panasonic GX1 for $100 less, and the Panasonic G3 for $200 less. If it were compared with those cameras it would come up short, inferior in IQ and grossly overpriced.

yes the only criticism I have is the price.. too expensive.. for the V1 that is..

In reply to:

forpetessake: Price is a little high, but no doubt it will soon go down. The sensor a little bit small, a little bit noisy, somewaht lacking in resolution, so it's not a camera for poster prints. If those are not a concern to you, it's one heck of a camera, small and light, compact quality lenses, fast AF, and WOW - 60 fps! You can't find a better all purpose walkaround camera, no P&S can compare with it.

Peanut88: OVER-PRICED ! ! !
CRAP systems and Nikon knows it.
That is why they are pushing it hard to sell it.
NO THANKS !

Tee1up: Unless you have a lot of extra cash to throw around and like to collect, I'm not sure why you would consider this camera, at least at this price point. I think DPR made a pretty fair assessment of this camera group.

In reply to:

johnparas11zenfoliodotcom: when the V1 gets sold for $499 with kit lens 10-30 or a pancake 10mm.. I will buy one but not for the MSRP or even current Street price..

I have played with a V1 one at a store and I liked the fast AF.. other than that...teh V1 doesn;t have a built in flash? really?...
.

oh.. for the asking price of the V1.. I would have wanted the EVF on the left hand side, and a hot shoe, Green/auto mode, PSAM..scene modes, art filters (like oly MFT cams) then, I might buy it..

I am a nikon DSLR user..

In reply to:

johnparas11zenfoliodotcom: for the $799 price-- one can have a Canon T3i or a Nikon D5100 -- give or take $50-- when the DSLRS are on sale..

right now the Canon T3i is $749 on sale, the Nikon D5100 is $799..

granted the DSLRs are not as small..but they are small already as far as DSLRs are concerned.. but then again, I am betting the DSLRs AF a lot faster than the G1x...

why can't have it all? :-)

if this Canon G1X-- is priced at $549 ... I think I will be more than willing to have it :-) does anybody share these thoughts?

when I mentioned the DSLRs.. the prices included the lens kits.. 18-55 (27-82.5mm equiv)... versus the 28-112mm of the G1X..

and yes I have mentioned the size difference.. but if we are being realistic.. when one brings a camera-- the size of a G1X and the size of the mentioned DSLRs... once the cameras are around your neck or your shoulder.. granted that is all one will be bringing (ONLY the G1X and/OR the DSLR with kit lens).... all of them are bulky already... anyway

once again.. i hear what you are saying.. but the question is.. would the premium price of the G1X warrants it? ...

and also.. believe me i want to have this G1X.. but I am just balking at the price... that is all...
