Not to call out Samsung, but if these Nikons had come from a second tier manufacturer, they would be in jeopardy of being laughed off the market. At their price point and performance level they would be deemed unacceptable. But with the magic Nikon name they will undoubtedly sell well, perhaps better than the m4/3 models. Doebn't make 'em better though...


It is not the name that is magic, it is the marketing machine.

Was in local Best Buy and they have both Nikon 1's on display in a prime location at the end of an aisle along with the two available lenses.. By comparison they only have a GF3 (no G3, no GH2, no lenses) and this was located beside two Sony's. They also had an Oly m43 (didn't notice the model number) that didn't even have a lens on the camera.

So yes Nikon will sell well because of the better promotion in the store.
