Re: What is the professional future of the Nikon 1 system?

Seems to me the Nikon 1 system is a test run before a big sensor MILC from Nikon. We can see how much of the Sony NEX-7 that has already crept into the V2, just add focus-peaking and an APS-C-sized sensor (slightly smaller is OK, too), an articulated display, and you have something that can lure away both the M43 gang, and the NEXers! DX lenses would of course fit, using an adapter, while a few super-small lenses would be the ones many would long for!

Seriously, for my ex-job as journalist on a daily paper my V1 would have done just fine - remember that not that long ago 3.5MP was what the class-leading Nikon D1X offered!

I personally would prefer that the anti-shake was inside the body, for the small primes, and conventional Nikon in-lens anti-shake for the longer ones!
