I wouldn't buy a N1 for anything over a cheap P&S until the dust settles and there's some indication what the future of the system is.

Why not? It's cheaper than premium p&s cameras right now and performs better. I'm basically treating the purchase the same way I would a p&s purchase. I don't care if Nikon never makes another lens for the N1. I would still be perfectly happy with the V1 for $379. Being able to get the upcoming 18.5mm f/1.8 for $185 later this year is just icing on the cake.

Indeed, if Nikon had released a large p&s camera with blazing PD autofocus and a 1" sensor for $379 at Photokina, it would have been front page news on DPReview.
