The N1 mistake, - sort of
2

I know what the N1 can do. Partly brilliant technick, partly confusion and all way around.

But to the mistakes, some of them: First, - the bajonett 40mm , 17mm impress. Ok, 43mm would have been better, but the main mistake is placement of electric contact in light path. without that, the same bajonett/lens mount could be used both for 1" and DX. When the sensor tech with fast enough read out speed come to DX, one could use the tremendous AF tech ++ from N1 and produce lenses for it - compatible for both format. Lenses is a not too clever step, - too few fast lenses in a natural hierarcy (maybe the electric contacts in light path makes it more difficult to produce these lense?), - middle and high quality, and maybe some not necessary.

Compability is also a problem. The N1 could be the natural companion for DSLR's, but only if N1 could use most of the equipment ment for DSLR's, - battery, flashes, remote, apps. It is not, - DL was constructed more in that way. And all the Nikon cameras should be.

Software is a mess. Hire someone knowing how to do the work, in Scandinavia or Silicon Valley they will find knowledge.

Two N1, one with EVF and handgrip and one without EVF and more easy to use (J/S).

Done properly, Nikon could have two mirrorless cameras, N1 and APC (N2), second to none today. Both 1" and stacked APC has what is needed to give us simplified constructed cameras (few parts) with outstanding qualities, with moderate R&D. The N1has qualities the other misses.
