Summary: I'm thinking of buying *another* V1 to have forever for when my current one eventually dies. The way the V2 is, it doesn't look good for the V3, so the V1 may indeed be "the last camera" I'll ever want.
Excerpt: After buying a V1, I found that I liked the little camera more and more. I used it mostly for wildlife with a 300F4 and other long lenses with the FT1 adapter. However, I missed a built-in flash, and I wanted a PASM dial. Several egonomic and control issues have been fixed on the V2, and the built-in flash really helps. I'm using it mostly with a 10-100 lens for general travel, and with long Nikon lenses for wildlife.
Excerpt: Well I got my Nikon V2 from B & H this week. So I thought I would share my experience so far with it.<br />I bought the camera with a special project in mind that I will doing later this year. The project requires a small lightweight camera that is easily held and carried without a strap, have great auto focus performance, and better image quality than a compact. I was going to do it with my V1 but the V2's improved weight and handling won me over.
Excerpt: I own the V1 and all of the Nikon 1 lenses except for the 10-100 PD zoom. I just borrowed my friends V2 for the weekend and did some comparisons between the two to see if it would be worth upgrading. These are only my initial impressions and only for still photography. I do not shoot video so I have no opinion on the video capabilities of this camera.
Summary: I am trying to decide whether what I gain in smallness is what I lose in having such a small sensor. I've been using the camera for about 3 months now, and so far am mostly happy with it. The small sensor has required me to pay more attention to my shutter speed than I am used to, but I'm getting used to it. I've been letting it be automatic and getting blurry animal pics. Now I am using shutter priority and so far have not had a problem.
Summary: Überarbeitung meiner Rezension: Da ich möglicherweise (?!) ein Montagsmodell erwischt habe, kann ich nur beschreiben was mir an dem Exemplar, was Amazon mir lieferte, aufgefallen ist: 1) der Autofokus arbeitet sehr schnell und präzise. Das hat diese Kamera der Konkurrenz sicherlich voraus 2) Für das, was sie kann, hat die Kamera eine sehr kompakte Größe - das ist praktisch.
Nicht schlecht - aber die DSLR ist mir dann doch lieber

Summary: Ich bin seit einigen Jahren begeisterte Canon-Fotografin - war aber immer neugierig auf die "Konkurrenz" - Nikon. Von daher freute ich mich wie ein Schneekönig, als ich schließlich die Nikon 1 V2 in den Händen hielt. Nicht nur, weil es mal eine Nikon war, sondern auch, weil ich schon lange mit einer Systemkamera geliebäugelt habe.
