As for superior image quality??? With comparable sensors? I don't THINK so!

The V1 does not have a comparable sensor (not close to the D5100).

Excuse me, perhaps I didn't make myself clear. I'm not comparing the V1 to a D600 or D5100 for image quality. I said "comparable" sensors. In this case, for comparison, a 24mp D7100 vs 24mp DX mirrorless (V3??). There would be no difference in image quality caused by the sensor.

Uh? Could the same be said when comparing a D7100 to a D600, no difference in image quality caused by the sensor? Plus, is there such a thing as a V3?

You're obviously enamored of the qualities of a DSLR which, in some areas are decidedly superior to mirrorless. I've become enamored of certain abilities that the V1 has demonstrated as well as the compactness which mirrorless design allows. This experience has convinced me that further improvements in EVF and tracking ability will ultimately lead to (I HOPE) a DX camera with a sensor equal to a D7100 and externally available controls similar to a D300. That would please me greatly.

That is too far in the future. I want D300 style camera with a D7100 style sensor today.

Enjoy your D600. It is an exceptional camera.

Best regards,
