Re: Not so simple IMO, likely DX will be here for a long time

Nikon 1 is clearly becoming a 400-800 (launch kit price) system, with emphasys in the 400-600USD bracket. Thom Hogan puts them in his "compact" group. That's the reason for the cheaper and smaller midrange kit zoom that many didn't understand why Nikon did it. It's just to be sold with the J1-J2 below USD 500. Nikon 1 is not competition to m43 or Nex, it's Nikon realization that cheap compacts are on the way out, because of smartphones, cameras will start at 300USD prices, and they need something to differenctiate them from SP.

Bottom line, though, I wonder if Nikon has the manufacturing capacity or interest in a 3rd lens design standard.

If needed, they can do it. And they'll need a ML system above the Nikon 1, sooner or later.

Good shooting and good luck

Thom Hogan has looked into his crystal ball:

It resonnates quite well with what we've been discussing in this thread.
