It's a serious question, why not buy a Nikon 1 if it fits your backup camera needs? Does all your gear have to be Sony? With lens size being a concern, you probably wouldn't reuse your A-mount lens on a 1" Sony system anyway. So what advantage would there be to having both camera made by Sony?

That's exactly why Sony has to make it - so that all my A-mount lenses will work on it with a 2.7x crop.

I have the V1 and the adapter.  Sucks to have to buy Nikon lenses to get that awesome zoom factor when I already have equivalent and better lenses for Sony mount.

If my Sony 70-300G worked on the V1 with autofocus the way Nikon's lenses work, we wouldn't be having this conversation.

If optical reach were more important than qualities of a sensor, why would anybody buy full frame cameras?
