See it for $400 on amazon now in silver. Looks good for aerial photography but it lacks HDR, time-lapse and video is "basic". Only missing feature for time-lapse is that 4FPS is too fast, would be nice to slow it down (likely via time-lapse feature) to 1 FPS. I simply use rubber bands to hold my current camera's shutter button down and shoot continuously. Simple and adds no weight (rubber bands are also holding the camera down, so they are needed regardless).

Just bought one from BH Photo including the electronic viewfinder for $490.00. Quite a camera for that price.

Frankly, how you can let yourself be disappointed by autofocus when the camera has manual focus is beyond me. Pre-focus and snap away!

I see what looks like the same Coolpix A offered on Amazon.com for about 1000 dollars and for about 650 dollars. The latter is marked "import". Anybody able to explain the difference?

Any deeply discounted price indicates that it is likely an import. Nikon will not service it if you have a problem. You can take the risk, but if you experience a problem do not give Nikon a bad review. Don't say I knew but...

Also note that you will not be able to download firmware updates for the camera. I would not touch an imported camera. If you want to save money, then wait about a year and hope they are coming out with a newer version - and that is when they offer great discounts. For example, Nikon just dropped the price on the camera for only $699.

Over $1,000 for a DX sensor with a fixed 28mm lens? I get that it is for "enthusiasts", but that seems like quite a bit of enthusiasm to me.
