Re: V1/J1 shape is a classic design

I agree, that the front side with basic leica like rounded shape looks great, but the design of the back side sucks. I actually know few girls, who look bit like that. (ha ha)

It's funny, how all the images of j1 are photographed from the top front angle, so you can't see the protruding back side and it makes the camera look thinner, than it is. The layout of the back side with cut out part above the lcd looks like 2002 camera, ugly and unfinished. Unlike Fuji X or Pentax Q Nikon wants to sell in big numbers, so they probably have to make the camera lame enough to appeal to masses. It's made for people, who get scared to death, when they see a hotshoe or iso button.
