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.

No optical low pass filter.

Increased number of AF points.

20 vs 10fps with AF-C.

Maximum iso increased to 12,800 from 6400.

Built in wifi and remote capability.

Improved video.

PSAM mode dial.

Programmable function buttons.

Built in flash.

Vari-angle LCD screen.

Of course some of these upgrades will matter little or not at all to some, whereas for others one or more of these upgrades will be exactly what they wanted.

Regarding price and inclusion of an Ft-1, if one were to sell the new Ft-1, new 10-30 PD lens and used V1, the net price for upgrading to a V3 is about $700. Probably need to add $50-100 for a micro SD and extra battery.
