Actually we were told specifically by several senior Nikon execs that the Nikon 1 system is 'not designed for the enthusiast market' (and, in as many words, that neither camera was aimed at the typical dpreview visitor).

The fact that the Nikon execs specifically stated the camera is not designed for the enthusiast market is a very odd statement and makes me somewhat suspicious that the marketers got their hooks into the project and weaved their own narrative around the camera post hoc.

"Several senior Nikon execs" ? I'm always suspicious when I hear talk like this.

Here's Rob Galbraith with a name: "During September's unveiling of the J1 and V1 in New York, Nikon USA senior technical manager Steve Heiner billed the system as being "designed for the ultimate balance of speed, portability and image quality."

Yes, naturally, i am lying. Or maybe I was in a private meeting.
