Nikon 1 system : no a real 'photographer's camera'?

If you want to know how DPreview give a Silver award to a camera, take a look at the comments for the Canon G1X review! Here the quote :

A DPreview reader : "A Silver Award for the Canon G1X and nothing for the Nikon V1, with it's revolutionary features like Phase-Detect AF on the sensor and high fps, and much better manual video mode and viewfinder? Puzzling indeed."

"By Lars Rehm (11 hours ago) from DPreview

The Dpreview Award system is not linked to the score of a camera. We give awards to cameras that we really enjoy using and with the G1 X that was the case. It's a real 'photographer's camera' with an abundance of external controls and excellent image quality. As a bonus it's small enough to stick it in your backpack on a hike. But then again, it might not be the best choice for you."

Did you hear that Nikon! Add many buttons to the 1 series with a very poor autofocus and maybe DPreview will give you a Silver Award...

After reading this comment, I understand why I don't like this site and their reviews anymore.
