Re: don't hold your breath

Based on the new interview with Dirk Jasper, it is unlikely there will be a premium 1 model because of the system's target users.

In a way, I actually prefer Nikon eventually to phase "out" the 1 system. For the intended "target" users, the traditional compact fixed lens cameras are going to just get better. With the Sony RX100, it is shown a 1" sensor could be incorporated into a compact body. I wouldn't mind a Sony RX100Z or RX100L (for larger zoom range) as a separate model - with a tradeoff of a larger body.

The best attribute of 1 is its AF and sensor. All others are ancilliary.
