J1/V1: Imported from the past?

I wish Nikon would have imported those cams from the future (analogue that F5 campaign) but those specs look like imported from the past.

Did Nikon had that system ready to launch 5 years ago, but put it in the closet instead?

I would have expected either a high MP cam (24 MP) with a superb wide angle lenses (perfect landscape combo) or a low MP cam (10 MP) with stellar high ISO performane (match or better than D700).

Nikon did not deliver at all.

Maybe the lifestyle crowd will be happy. Whoever this might be, but every second word in the press release is lifestyle.

In short: EPIC FAIL!
