Summary: I find the more I use the V1 the more I appreciate it. The image quality is outstanding and the AF and the camera's overall speed is off the charts. This camera is so much fun my D600 and D700 are spending more time in the bag.
Summary: Nikon 1 V1 is the camera that got me into mirrorless cameras. V1 paired with 18.5mm f/1.8 is simply awesome. Nikon 1 has small cameras with small lenses. Sony Nex has small cameras but many of their lenses are large. Nikon 1 has very fast and accurate af and even has very good tracking and continuous af. It has incredible burst rate as well which makes it kid friendly. It's a great family camera.
Summary: This is one amazing little camera! I have a Nikon D200 and an assortment of lenses which I love, but this V1 will be my travel camera for going overseas. The size and compactness of the camera and several lenses is ideal. One does have to get used to handling a smaller seemingly delicate instrument after using the larger DSLR. This is a great system, especially with the 6.7 to 13mm wide angle zoom and the adapter to use the larger DLSR lenses.
Summary: Got a V1 with a 10-100mm zoom several weeks ago and have been using it constantly. I have a D7000, but I was really looking for something smaller and less obtrusive to take with me everywhere I go, since I live in NYC. The V1 has all the features of a dSLR without all the dials and buttons to distract you. Images with the V1 in RAW are sharp and after some post editing, are very colorful with a "film-like" quality that I love.
