V1 not the only camera to loose value. NEX 5R lost 1/2 its value in 7 months.

The V1 didn't "lose value"....

...because by virtually unanimous assent it was ridiculously priced to begin with.

It remains a nice little camera that's a good deal at the current low prices.  I have no allegiance nor animosity towards Nikon.  I'm a Sony guy now (A850 and NEX 7), who came from Olympus (a string of nice cameras, ending with a beloved E-3), but who has now bought 2 V1's, one for my daughter last winter for travel abroad, and now another one from the Nikon Store 2 days ago for my wife to replace her Kodak P880 (!  look it up...).  The only thing that gave me pause was lack of an onboard flash, even a weak one.  But in the end it's a nice camera for those two people.  The better options were all too expensive, or lacked a viewfinder, which both of these people needed.  One of the best deals out there right now and back in the winter when the "fire sales" started.

So, it hasn't "lost value" but rather "found its value".  Let Nikon and others take note.
