What do you mean by mini SD cards? Doesn't the V3 take SD cards? I haven't heard they have switched to mini SD. That is an obsolete format! Why the hell would they switch from SD to mini SD? They should have gone all the way to micro SD! WTF?!?!?!

They actually did go to Micro SD cards

Thats one big negative for me. I want this camera, and yes I do find it overpriced in comparison to the competition. But it's all the little stiff I would have to replace. New batteries, new sd cards. I don't want to buy new sd cards. Does the kit lens take 40.5 filters?

It doesn't take any filters at all (other than gelatin filters taped to the front of the lens).

I guess they expect people who want to use filters will buy other lenses for the camera. Most point-and-shoot cameras won't take filters either. This is sort of a bridge between a point-and-shoot camera and a DSLR, so maybe they have made the new kit lens to fit into the point-and-shoot realm better. You can always swap out your new lens for an excellent quality used version of the older lens, I'm sure. The new lens will work on a J1. I bet someone with one of those would LOVE to swap with you.
