topstuff: The moaners are pretty predictable, but I think they miss the point.

Amazing best in sector AF. Very fast operation. Tiny lenses.

And IQ which is perfectly excellent for most uses, especially the use of ipads and LCD panels which so many people use these days to view their images. For such people ( and there are many ) the little Nikon is perfect.

Besides, the original 1 series has sold pretty well. This will build on that.

People carping on about wanting a bigger sensor in a Nikon mirrorless are missing the point - this camera is not for them and was never intended to be for them.

And if you tend to use an ipad to view your images, then complaining about the small sensor and IQ is pretty moot.

DOF was my only criticism of the small sensor, now ameliorated to some extent by the new fast portrait lens.

Its not a bad offering. Bravo Nikon.

Still wish it has a flip up rear LCD though, as per OMD and NEX

soccer moms won't buy this...

tommy leong: Class 10 is about the SD memory
NOT the wifi transfer speed.

is that correct?

so, while it CAN transfer RAW files, it didn't mention how many days that will take.....

class 10 is wayyyyyyy to slow. even at 45mb/s is still too low....

Louis Dallara: You can buy a whole Samsung camera with built in wifi for $129 on Amazon
Why would you spend $99 on this card?
IMHO.My Eye-Fi X2 never worked right, so why would I gamble on this card, besides it doesn't work with a D800

Eye-Fi would hate you if they see this....shhhhh....
LOL!

16GB is not even enough!

Jogger: Waste of time since these are taken with the kit lens. The limiting factor is the lens not the camera. Not sure why DPR doesnt use the same lens across bodies so that proper comparison can be made. Something like the Zeiss 50/2 Makro can be used on Nikon and Canon bodies. For the m43 cameras they use a macro lens.

DPR's test is more meaningful for average photographers. Pros shouldn't even look at D600 from the beginning anyways. If you are a pro, buy D4/D800, period.

Photato: Funny that the iPod Touch outsells the iPhone yet it is ignored.
The new Touch version has the same lens as the iPhone5 but bigger pixels (5MP), so I wonder if it is going to be better for low light than the iPhone5. The touch is basically an iPhone5 minus the cell phone, but still can make wifi calls.
In regards to the screen, I see a lot of problems with all the rest of the iOS devices apps showing letter boxing because of the 16:9 new screen ratio. 16:9 might be great for movies (new ones) But for everything else a 3:2 screen ratio is a better compromise between movie ratios, better for web browsing, photos and apps.
I like that the screen gamut got bigger though, a feature everybody will enjoy.
Dont like the new 9pin proprietary connector, it seems like a step backwards since it lacks analog audio and video, and it renders all your 30pin accessories obsolete or impract.
Battery life has not improved and remains annoying almst everyone on a daily basis.
I think Ill skip a generation

@thewhitehwak
for someone doesn't even know Ricoh or Pentax, such as you...i think you should stick with iphone and stop coming to DP. seriously. your comments are always provocative, meaningless and stupid.

sorry if you were just a teen...i shouldn't be so harsh on someone only recognizes iphone.

SunnyFlorida: what a bunch of softball questions! Why didn't you ask him

a-) How come Nikon Coolpix Cameras are such crap compared to Canon, Panasonic and Sony?

or

b-) Oly and Sony are eating your lunch in the mirrorless segment, how much longer will you stay with the CX system

no offense....but i think you are the ID10T here

Glen Barrington: I wonder if Sony has hit a wall in terms of making a profitable fullframe DSLR but still wants to produce them for some reason. It may be that the Sony name can only justify a certain price level regardless of quality built in. It may be that teaming up with a brand known for expensive professional level MF equipment but who has had trouble breaking into the high end consumer market is a win for both (I suspect Hassy would be thrilled with Leica's sales figures!).

Sony gets to raise prices to a profitable level, and Hasselblad gets to develop a 'mindshare' in the luxury consumer level market while getting a 'taste' of the profits from each camera sold, allowing them to eventually get a bit more aggressive in the consumer arena.

the easiest move for Sony is to buy Nikon....period.
teaming up with Hasselblad won't do Sony any good...actually...it might damage Hassy brand.
