Last year I told people that a sensor a little smaller than the 4/3rds sensor may be the best size. Lenses will be smaller and I personally like the larger crop factor.

They've really failed to capitalize on the potential size advantage at this point though.

I just got back from BB where they have a Nikon 1 display and the J1 felt larger and heavier than the GF3, and the V1 felt very heavy and difficult to hold. I have no clue why they didn't stick a nice grip on them.

Sadly between the poor feel, the heaviness, and poor logicin auto mode, I can't recommend these to anyone right now.

My bet is the v2.0 version will fix the glaring problems. Also, their super zoom is ginormous! It is much bigger than the 2 m43 super zooms for some reason.
