I think Nikon should pitch the Nikon 1 CX-system to three user groups.

One, existing DSLR users who want a weekend or walkabout camera that has the equivalent features and functions of DSLRs but is not bulky and heavy. The mock-up below shows a CX-lens on a Nikon P7700 body with a EVF plonked on top. Incidentally, the V1 and P7700 have near identical dimensions.

To be honest, this is what I was actually expecting from the very beginning with the V1. And then the V2. And there's no indication any new V3 will be anything like this either. Especially that hotshoe.

I can't see why. For some reason, both Nikon and Canon must have hired the same market research firm telling them both go in the exact opposite direction to this and now both companies are in serious 'rethink' mode because nobody's buying into it.

Maybe that 'rethink' will actually result in what they should have done in the first place, but I'm not going to be holding my breath. If a Nikon 1 camera like this ever happens, I will actually be amazed.
