Re: V2 body is still narrower and 30% lighter than Sony NEX7

Yeah, one of the smallest, but if that being the case, why not go for the Pentax Q. Just trying to keep getting small and smaller, light and lighter had seen to be a rage among the Mfrs, and this hurts the product. The Panasonic GF-2/GF-3 turn out so much worse off that Panasonic need to now field the GX-1. As for the V series, if I ever want it small, slim, and light I can have the J2, shoot RAW, and its pretty much just the same anyway.

I am kind of baffled by what the V2 means. Its ever looking more like just a Coolpix with a mount and requiring a lens ( not exactly a bad idea in its own right ). Its perhaps coming out good as a DC upgrade goes, but not the complimentary, compact system camera as dedicated photographers seek.
