I have come to discover that one of the biggest hold backs is simply I don't see Nikon caring for the 1 system user. It's like the V3 is a good match for my needs not because they thought about it, but by accident. And they don't seem to care. - that Nikon 1 V1 issue of previewing every picture taken and no firmware upgrade for that- what the hell Nikon?

Again, in the context of spending so much cash, it really gives one pause.

A long long time ago i wrote this post regarding the 1 system:

Hah! How interesting huh. :-\

- you wanted to do fast sports photography or wildlife? Win

But nowadays i think the 1 system is for Nikon Dslr users and that is it. The guy suddenly decide to buy something small that changes lenses. Instead of buying into a new system, you can buy a new system but use your nikon lenses to shoot things like sports, wildlife and etc. BUT, others, not nikon users, prefer other options on the market and i would bet that the upcoming sony rX100III 24-70mm 1.8-2.8 will outsell the 1 system easily.

- you like any of the Nikon 1 bodies (Or J's) and wanted better overall operation/controls/size? In spite of the price? Win. Price an issue? Consider a V2.

- You want a QSF camera? (quiet/small/fast) - Win.

If you ever decide to sell the X-E1 (including lens) to upgrade, let me know...

Haha, goog to know  I am keeping either a K-5 or X-E1 but selling one of them.  Both are gray and would be my "go to" camera for anything else the V3 I feel would not suffice or I don't feel confident yet to shoot w/paid event.  But won't be my main camera.
