Anybody else own this camera?

Not me , but I have been looking at it.
I'd planned to buy one, especially because oft the good price. But the personally relevant disadvantages (no hot shoe, micro SDRAM, incompatible Nikon lenses with FT-1, 1/60s flash sync) led me to a more allrounder RX10-camera.
Don't own it but am curious to see if the 1 series IQ has improved at all...
This camera works fine for me, but I have an extreme weakness for extra-small cameras. Too bad the 70-300mm zoom is so expensive.
Hi everyone! First post here. I've had a Nikon 1 S1 for awhile and like it. My new J5 is arriving today! Can't wait to start shooting with it.
I'll be curious to see more images. Welcome, BTW.
Go figure. My J5 came yesterday and it's defective. Shoots great in jpeg. Not processing raw files! Grrrrrrr!
Ok, after figuring out what was going on with my J5 I took some pictures. I'm not much into portraits. But I think this one came out pretty well.
Some mums. Handheld at 1/2 second.

Lovely!!! I keep looking at the J5 and wonder about getting it and then decide not to. Good to see an improved IQ, especially in low light.
I had the S1. And the difference between these two are amazing. Not saying the S1 wasn't a good camera.
I still have my J1 and V1 but may sell them. A J5 with the 18.5mm might be enough for me in some circumstances Oh what am I saying... I just want every new camera that comes out!! Talk about a GAS fiend.
