Great article, and very timely now with 4 formats fighting for the enthusiast's dollar.

On article Nikon 1 V3: a quick summary (585 comments in total)

Glad I didn't wait for this to be announced before making my migration from the D300 to mirrorless; it would have been a big letdown. Very happy with my decision to move to Fuji.

Carlos Loff: This is a lie, the only way is not to innovate - You can also produce top cameras using the best you can do on a very much complete model for a fair price - People pay for what is good - Just compare the best crop cameras from CaNikon and the best from Pentax and you will all see what I mean and you will see there is not a single way to sell

The iPhone and Mac are probably niche products too, eh?

0MitchAG: I'd love M4/3 for light weight and a single lens Fuji X-Trans APS-C or Full Frame for performance. Alternatively, if they move into M4/3 once mirrorless becomes larger, it'll be all I ever need. They are a company I truly believe is shaping innovation for the years to come, and their honesty will get them quite far.

You make it sound like APS-C is the odd format compared to M4/3; APS-C is a great compromise to FF and offers better IQ than M4/3. They would be nuts to try and develop a FF, APS-C AND M4/3 concurrently. They are already working on FF now (nobody is going to say they'd consider it without have SOME development going on).

anteportas: For me as a journalist the interview misses to many points in detail. Examples?

1.) Mr. Iida says, users are asking for new flashes. Why does the interviewer not ask if there is something in the pipeline and what these flashes will look like?

2.) Mr. Iilda says that Fuji has to refresh the lens lineup. What does it mean? Which new lenses can we expect from fuji?

3.) When will there be an x-pro 2 an what will be the differences to the x-t1? Only the hybrid-viewfinder?

4.) Mr. Iida sys Fuji has to be innovative. So what are the areas of technical innovation we can expect from fuji in the near future?

Just a few examples abaout information this interview is not providing.

You'll never get that sort of detail in the consumer tech industry. Even this level of openness is unheard of; nobody wants to discuss their technology/feature roadmap. A lens roadmap is another thing, as that is put out there to build credibility in the longevity of their overall system. More details may emerge as they understand their users better. But you may as well forget about learning what feature sets they are thinking of.
