Re: same reason why Canon EOS-M is selling badly (need faster AF + lower price)

I think I'd agree with you, the V1 is currently at fire-sale prices, has probably the best AF of any mirrorless (10fps with AF on every shot), the best burst rate (IIRC 60fps full-resolution) and sharp lenses (well, the 10-30 and 30-100 are very sharp, if not that fast aperture-wise). I really can't see what would be better for photographing the kids, you even get decent focus tracking.

I don't have a V1 and probably won't get one, as less good for the keen photographer, too much stuff buried in menus, but I have a RX100 and the 1" sensor in that is great, better than my 12MP m43 by a long way (hence an m43 upgrade is fast approaching).

The problem is that most young children shots are done indoors and the Nikon 1 series uses CDAF in lower light.  So most of its advantages get lost in the environments you need it most.
