On article Nikon 1 V3: a quick summary (593 comments in total)
In reply to:

keeponkeepingon: Looking at the camera the first thing I notice is the controls on the left hand side forcing two handed operation for frequently used functions such as image review/playback.

One thing I don't get about the one system is that the smaller sensor size does not seem to translate into much smaller camera size. Sony's NEX 3n is smaller than the V1 and V2, about the same size as the J1 and the 16-50 power zoom is almost the same size as Nikon's kit lens. So you pay just as much (or more) for a smaller sensor in the same sized package. The main difffernce would then be the AF but with the A6000 sony seems to be catching up on that front tool.

Agree, Sony lens are huge, so are some M43 lenses. Nikon 1 has the edge.

But with the price tags for V1, V2 and V3, Nikon 1 has already dead.

Needless to hope for the IQ of the new 18 mp sensor.

Retzius: Or, you can just wait 6 months and it will be on firesale for $399.99

Good point.

So no luck for the V3 firesale for around $399 like the V1 did.

No, Nikon V2 never has been on firesale like $399 from birth to death.

Nikon V3 will not too.

Does it support USB dock?

All Sigma newly released lenses are sharper, have much better image quality than Nikon's. Also cheaper in prices.

No wonder Nikon is so worried.

What about EN EL15 battery charged only 20 times and died?

They only recall the ones that potentially causes fire.

Nikon is a bleeding company.

I can't believe that the PHOTOs in Body & Design section are full of horrible dust.

Is it taking the pixx of the D600 or Dpreview going down hill?

Clean the dust before you take the photos please.

How about the breaking 3rd party support of lense, batteries, grips and so on via firmware downgrade?

The company is bleeding but they don't care.

What they need is to listen to their customers, not telling this b & s.

By looking at their pictures, you don't think they are people who are willing to change.

Nikon needs to listen to their customers. Not telling this BS.

Cariboo: No EVF? No deal. I stop looking at P&S's to purchase, when they don't include an EVF. Nice that Panasonic is finally offering that option. So I bought the LF1 & the EVF works great. As an aside for me, it also looks like the Panasonics have other better features too. So for me, Panasonic 1, Nikon 0.

I love EVF. But it is expensive as hell when it is sold separately.

beavertown: I bet 3rd party batteries are not allowed to use.

How sad.

They even break support for Tamron A005 on FT1 mount after the firmware update.

Nikon is a shxt company these days.

Don't update anything from Nikon.

It will break support for 3rd party lenses, batteries and stuff.

Shame on this company.
