So with the V3 about to be released I took a quick look at specs to see if an upgrade is worthwhile. From what I can see the V3 improves the following over the V1:

18 vs 10mp.

10mp is enough for me and most Pictures are posted on the Internet anyway, when I need more I use my D800.

No optical low pass filter.

Does that realy matter much?

Increased number of AF points.

Thats a point

20 vs 10fps with AF-C.

10fps is fast enough for me

Maximum iso increased to 12,800 from 6400.

Well, all depends on the output. Most of the times I am on Auto up to 800iso with my V1

Built in wifi and remote capability.

For me not needed

Improved video.

For casual use V1 Video is good.

PSAM mode dial.

Most of the time I am in A mode, learned to live without it.

Programmable function buttons.

Tahts a point

Built in flash.

Well, I rather have a build in EVF.

Vari-angle LCD screen.

Some Need it, I don't

These are all nice improvements but worth the $$. I don't know. And unfortunately, no indication low light performance has improved in any significant way. Time to wait for some hands-on reviews.

The Major improvements in the V3 I wished for were CLS, all focus Points usable with FT1 Adapter.

The big minus is no build in EVF. Another battery and mini SD cards
