Nikon 1 build quality

I looked at a Nikon 1 today and it seemed to be made very cheaply. It's a long time since I've owned a Nikon camera, the Coolpix 5400. By comparison, the 1 seems very flimsy, including the control dials.

I've been following some of the comments about this camera but, after holding one in my hands, not sure I'm interested any longer. Am I missing something?
