Re: I feel ripped off by Nikon 1 system

Not at all. I've had my J1 for about a year, and the V1 for just a few months shy of that. In that time, I've used them both for hundreds (or thousands) of pictures of my grandchildren that I probably wouldn't have gotten otherwise because I wouldn't have felt like hauling out the DSLR for spontaneous "here and there" quick grab shots. Many of them are priceless. So, no, I don't feel like I wasted my money at all. I've really come to love them for their ease of use and simplicity. They're small and lightweight, and one or the other of them is always in my hand when the kids are around.

I don't see any compelling reason to upgrade them for the time being. I think they're perfect for my use just the way they are. I just count all the money I didn't spend on the latest and greatest cameras and lenses this year, and I figure I've come out way ahead. Except for my Pentax WG-1 which gets dunked and banged around in the swimming pool all summer long, I can't think of when I've had more fun shooting with any other camera.
