A mirrorless Nikon is a welcome thing. The problem that I have, and the reason that I have not already pre-ordered, is that the V1 does not shoot stills in 16:9 aspect ration. That is the ratio of my computer monitor, my T.V., my cell phone, and HD video. So, what the heck is Nikon thinking?
If they think I'm going to wait for the V2 to correct this mistake, they are mistaken, again. I'll get the Panasonic LX-5. And it will fit in my pocket.
I applaud Nikon for the effort. And I look forward to samples. But the lack of 16:9 stills means the V1 is dead on arrival, for me.
