I love it...I still have my Nikon F Photomic FTn and non-Ai lenses!

My view is that if they had made the Nikon 1 a m4/3 camera they would have had more success and opened up a major new market for Nikkor lenses.

AngryCorgi: At straight exchange rate conversions:

Camera = $3350
EVF = $590
Lens Hood = $140
Handgrip = $155
Flash = $420

What a joke.

It's only a joke if they can't sell any...and I'm sure there are many members of the Louis Vuitton crowd that will keep the factory busy....

Interesting....all the emotion over price points and price comparisons, don't get me wrong, cost can always be a factor.....but I moved to M4/3 for the reduced weight and form factor....I was tired of hauling around SLR's and DSLR's for many years.

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 still have my black Nikon F Photomic FTn.......

Cyril Reif: What a strategic mistake.....Nikon should have gone with Micro Four Thirds and competed head-to-head with Panasonic and Olympus...what cowards. They would have also created a great new market for Micro Four Thirds Nikkor lenses......and I've been a loyal Nikon user for over 40 years!

...and what makes you think they wouldn't....the standard has already been licensed to many other lens manufacturers....and having Nikon join would only expand the market opportunity for every one.

Don't underestimate the mirrorless cameras...I've been a Nikon SLR/DSLR user since 1968 (I still have my original Nikon F from 1972), but I have almost exclusively been using my GF1 since I got it in 4/2010.

Canon and Nikon can wait and let the other manufacturers establish the global demand and then jump in because they still "own" the brands that everyone knows and wants to buy. If I look at me experience, I can see a scenario that every serious DSLR photographer will also be carrying a mirrorless camera, one for every Canon and Nikon DSLR sold.
