Why the Nikon 1 series?

I wondered why People over here are using their Nikon 1. Is it the size and weight that is most important. May be the Focal lenght you get with small lenses. The much better IQ over their former P&S or did they switch over form a DSLR?

I had a DSLR and wanted/needed something lighter and smaller. I ditched my DSLR for the Nikon 1.

I wanted it to be an add on, but after a while I ditched my DSLR as it was gathering dust because the 1 was much more convenient.

I use it as an add on cam to my DSLR setup.

I used another mirrorless system before I started to use Nikon 1.

I first used a P&S/Bridge or other cam. I wanted to upgrade.

Size and weight are not the most important reason for me, so it was something else.
