The Nikon 1 problems

They have two problems.

1. The Nikon 1 is more a narrow niche camera than what they might have hoped.

2. Other mirrorless technologies have a big head start in market penetration. At current sales rates it will be a very long time before the number of Nikon 1 units sold approaches the number of Nex or M43 units in the market. It means Sony and M43 will have a larger base of lens owners to sell new cameras and new lenses to.

Actually, I think spanked is pretty accurate....DPR really gives the impression that they truly did not like this camera, in this review.

I'm not sure I have read another review from them that was this negative. They are clearly trying to be fair about it, but it does not push any of the right buttons for them....
