NCummings: It looks more like a Sony NEX system CSC than a Nikon - thats maybe no bad thing. I just wonder if Nikon have addressed the issue of the truly awful lenses supplied with the 1 series. The 10-30 and 30-110 lenses for example are particularly bad - way too much distortion and poor open aperture performance considering their price. I also wonder if the existing lens designs are up to the job of delivering 14+ mega pixel images. I had to use a Nikon F adapter with some decent Nikon/Nikkor lenses with my V1 to get satisfyingly sharp images! Now if only Nikon had bought out a fast, say f1.8 pancake lens at the same time as the new camera, we might have been looking at a good little street camera!
I cant say i agree with the comments about the new camera being ugly though, different perhaps, but not ugly.
It will be interesting to se what the new sensor is capable of delivering in terms of image quality and high ISO performance.

Wow - your V1 and CX lenses were horrible! Which is strange, because my V1 and CX lenses are amazing. I have no problem getting sharp images with the combo. In fact, you might be the first person I that I have read about who didn't think that the CX kit lenses are great.
