The professional future?

First of all the Nikon 1 system at it's current state isn't meant for professionals at all, look how they advertise it, look at the color options (pink, red, white ...) and you know who it is first of all meant for target, namely the common mass audience. Look at the shootings and video options, that's nothing a pro would usually need or make use of at all.

Actually Nikon doesn't have the typical dSLR user here in mind, instead more the casual people who want to take daily family fun shots and the like with a more flexible P&S system (...small still compact with a few exchangeable lenses etc.). IMO things like the FT1 adapter etc. haven't been thrown out first of all to attract the pros, instead they were probably more meant to overcome with their lens shortcomings when the system was newly presented. So Daddy can mount his big already available glass on Moms small daily on the go cam if desired.

The Nikon system 1 has to be seen more as a much more capable P&S upgrade or replacement than something to use as a dSLR downgrade or small replacement.

If the system 1 should be used in future more by professionals, or lets say at least more by higher demanding enthusiasts, then the things jonikon already named before would be absolute mandatory here!
