Re: Bizzare decision, if that is true.

Interesting. The Nikon 1 is smaller. It uses a much newer sensor than most of the m43. It has much, much higher data-readout. It has much, much more advanced, groundbreaking AF. Thanks to this, it has full AF-S legacy support. It has a magnesium frame instead of polycarbonate. It has more direct controls than most Panasonics and Olympuses. What did I miss?

You are right in everything apart from the last point.

Four of the six latest µFT offerings have got more to far more direct controls than the new Nikons. Nonetheless, I think the V1 is one hell of an interesting camera and if the reviews confirm that the C-AF works as it is claimed, this is the breakthrough that will mean - on the mid term - the end for the anachronistic mirror.

I truly could imagine buying a V1 or its successor when the faster lenses are available.

Why not - if there's enough space on the sofa...
