Epic Fail, clearly

Small noisy sensor with excess NR visible even at base ISO, combined with slow lenses, means IQ will probably be in compact territory. Not compact enough to make a difference.

Now clearly I am not in the target market (but my needs are covered by a Fuji X100). I am planning on getting a large-sensor compact for my wife, and currently my choice is the Panasonic GF3X with the pancake zoom, failing that the Olympus E-PM1 with the Panasonic pancake zoom.

Nikon may have been trying not to cannibalize DSLR sales with the ! system, but the end result will be that Sony and m43 will do it for them.
