Re: Fair Conclusion...

Hmmm... the review seems fair, but the reviewer does not seem very enthusiastic about the cameras.

If you're anything like me and like to shoot family snapshots, in all sorts of conditions, often with moving subjects, then the V1 is just fantastic. The incredibly fast AF and general operation, excellent VR, sharp, compact lenses and superb metering all combine such that I almost never miss a shot! I can't ask for more from a camera than that, and I suspect a ton of enthusiastic family photographers who don't want to carry a DSLR around would love these cameras.

I'd have given the camera a higher score, although I do think the high price is a real barrier to entry for the target market.
