Pretty sure you could easily sell your FT1 here

- There is a distinct impression that Nikon does not want my money, but wants to steal it. Custom accessory port, camera price, no bigger tier RAW converter included at this level of pricing, throwing the FT1 instead of the option for a lens (I really don't care for the FT1), so you will maybe buy some more Nikon lenses, non 2-axis pivotal newer flash, only one option to buy the Nikon 1 V3 in the usa so you will get that kit lens if you already have one and are upgrading from a previous Nikon 1, etc.

Anyone else feels that one? It bugs me.

I see Fuji takes care of their user base. Ricoh is very focused on providing what people expect of them. Pentax does great features set/ergonomics at a great price (note: I know Ricoh and Pentax are now one).

If you end up keeping this kit, I have no doubt you could sell the FT1 to any one of several folks in this forum for something like $175-180 all in without paying a ~$20 gouge fee to ebay.   So that could certainly defray part of the cost of this kit for you if you hang onto it.
