Just acceptable ones. Until now.

Seriously, ps were always a compromise between quality and size. The Nikon closes that gap quite a bit. You can have size and quality speed and af now. Thats huge.

Sorry, in terms of size and weight the v1 with a lens on it is hardly 'compact', and several times as heavy and large as say the S95.

The fact that a-mount lenses are still worth any money at all is thanks to the success of SLT.
