The Nikon 1 series is a hodgepodge of modern and somewhat backwards tech all thrown together. To be honest I have no clue what Nikon was thinking when they put this system together, it makes no sense at all. Even though the system was marketed as being entry level, it takes some higher level raw editing to really maximize the images. The V1 shared battery is great, but the UI and handling of the camera is just amateurish. I know the V2 and V3 improve on this, but I have no desire to invest in a different battery system or micro SD cards for the V3.No, you wouldn't be Jonathan if you just meandered through time with the same camera.
I enjoy the diversity of your images.
Strangely though, the system is filling a two-prong niche for me. It gives me a dirt cheap small camera to mess around with when hanging with my kids AND it gives me a small crop camera with the FT-1 adapter to extend my telephoto reach. I'm blown away at how sharp my 70-200mm f4 VR is on this setup and it's making me think of getting a 300mm f4 PF VR to try on the camera. With the way I'm shooting nowadays I prefer smaller and lighter gear.
For everyone else, this system is just too weird. Better off getting an M43 or Fuji-X camera!
