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

Re: The V1 is nice, but hardly a Ferrari...

I agree, the V1 isn't a Ferrari. The D800 is more like a Ferrari in terms of cost, size, weight with a much bigger motor / sensor. The V1 is more like the Ariel Atom, it doesn't cost nearly as much, is much smaller and lighter and faster too.

Truth be told there is so much more to camera performance metrics than the mere size of the sensor.

At 4-6 fps the D800 is far from being a Ferrari! It also needs much more storage than a Ferrari could cope with

An arial atom is a good comparison with the 1 series, although build quality of the 1 series is better!

But then nitpicking about the car brand is really missing the point... as you all know!

Pete is correct, the V1 is like a 2-seater sports car, the D800 is like an 8 seater SUV.

The reality of life is that most consumers drive their cars under 65mph so having a car that can do 180mph is not needed; consumers prefer a smooth ride (better I SO performance) , more leg room (Dynamic Range) and more space for the kids to sit in the back without disturbing the adults ( Better subject Isolation and DOF Control) at the expense of going 180mph ( faster AF) .

Nonsense. Most potential buyers of a mirrorless camera don't care about these things, because they don't know anything about any of these concepts. And that's why ALL mirrorless are selling so poorly. Consumer think that big, as in DSLR, equals top-notch performance. And that's why DSLRs have taken a much smaller sales hit, than mirrorless cameras.
