Yeah, there's a clear tradeoff -- smaller sensor, but better AF tracking. The prices were still kind of high originally, as I recall."

I bought a new Nikon 1 S1 last week for my grandson last week, being cleared out at a Target, for $149.99 with kit lens. That doesn't seem high, to me.

I said that prices were kind of high originally... when they came out. Not now when they are being fire-sold. Sure, pick them up now that they're a good deal. I know someone who got a good deal on a Samsung with an APS-C sized sensor.

I guess I misunderstood. It's a shame that Nikon has not produced the V3 model which had been expected. Much like the NEX-7x which was put off for 2 years.

Nikon may also join up in the medium sized centre-EVF-hump bandwagon, like all the others.
