Those idiots need to shoot their marketing team as the vapid masses of Nikon fans out there have a hatred of anything that is not an SLR. I guess that's understandable when you consider Nikon hasn't made decent for the past 10 years but dSLRs, and this overpriced cash-in is a doubtful exception.

Wait.. this thing has the same physical size as the awesome GF1 with a smaller sensor and arrives 2 years later? Am I missing something? As a relative new comer to photography (few years) I am just absolutely stunned by some of what goes on with these companies. Did these guy miss the entire point of mirrorless cameras? The REASON that there is a market for these things in the first place is so damn simple it's not even funny – HIGH IMAGE QUALITY (close or same as DSLR), SMALL BODY. It's just so simple. Here we have a camera that is as big as the two year old GF1, with a smaller sensor. Meanwhile, M43 and Sony NEX have bigger sensors and smaller bodies than these Nikons, not to mention their head start. The only reasoning i can see why they did this is so as not to cannibalise their SLR sales or for Nikon fans to not have to stray to another brand. If Canon release a mirrorless that can use their entire range of existing lenses they will win this race hands down.

I am willing to wait for the review. It does not seem to fit my needs, but who knows.

I am sure there are plenty of people looking at the Olympus XZ1 or the Nikon Coolpix lineup who will be thrilled with this.

Nikon makes good cameras, and lots of people buy them.

Take a look at the gallery at Dpreview or at and read the specs. High ISO is very good and IQ equal to or better than Olympus PEN. Pretty amazing camera.
