Nikon 1 sounds pointless, even the focus system not impressive

Even the hybrid focus system here that some forum posters have been jealous of doesn't sound that impressive to me. It's designed to capture shots quickly in good light, but the CDAF aspect of the Nikon system sounds like it's way behind m43.

The Nikon 1 is the same size as m43 even though the sensor is a lot smaller.

$600 for entry level Nikon 1, OUCH!

No fast primes, and you'll never get shallow DOF like you can get with some of the fast m43 primes.

Sounds like the menu system really sucks.

On a square millimeter basis, the Nikon 1 sensor way outperforms the 12 MP m43 sensor, but hopefully the new OM-D series will fix that problem.
