There's zero chance this line is 'gone'.

At the very worst I'd imagine Nikon could move the 1 series down. If they've sold 10 J's for every V they may have decided to cede the high-end.

Guess I wasn't clear - I did not mean the system, I meant the V line. A couple of recent announcements lead me to believe this is the case (in addition to the sales you mention).

  • Two new lenses neither of which is announced with a V2. The 11-27 is announced for the J2 (or at least stated it will be a kit). Nify fifty is announced stand alone.

  • Underwater housing announced for the J1/2......accessories generally start with "flagship" model & move down, they rarely go the other way.

My guess is the V1 is on clearence. It's gone, there will be no V2. It didn't sell well & didn't offer anything to the intended market. A camera with no flash for P&S upgraders?
