    I think the Nikon 1 series peaked with the V1.

    70-300 native zoom would be nice.

    Fingers crossed its affordable. That is... around $AU600 would be OK for me, any more and its just not doable

    It makes sense for the v3 to have an optional evf.
    It allows Nikon to drop the J series If It needs to.
    This CAM whatever they release It as v3 or? Might well replace both the J and V series in the future.
    Keep the S1 as the low price point

    I've discovered that I don't like detachable EVFs. I have a really nice one for my Olympus. Never use it. Wasted $250 on that.

    Snap. I've tried detachable EVF's twice. They just don't work for me either.

    The lack of a viewfinder makes the V3 a "no go" for me, as well. What a shame, as it seems to have almost everything else I would need.

    I've dipped my toes into the Mu-43 world, after getting a sense Nikon wasn't going to develop the 1 series in a way that would suit me. It's now looking, more and more, like I made the right decision.

    I love my V1, and am able to work around most of its quirks. However, it's doubtful I'll be spending anymore money on it.

    And on today's rates, $1,323.62 in Australia. No chance. Happy with my little lot.

    The sigma 50-500 is about a grand and the sigma 300-800 f5.6 is a mighty 4.5k .
    The new nikon seems pretty good value when compared to those two. But I won't be buying one myself as I wouldn't use it.

    You can get a D5200 plus the Nikon 70mm 300mm f4.5/5.6 VR for the price of that lens. Once you crop the 24meg sensor down on the DSLR the IQ will be as good as the Nikon 1 plus the new lens.
    If you need to use a camera for sports of nature the DSLR is easier to use than the Nikon 1

    If you move up to the D7200 you can crop to the same size as the 1" sensor by the push of a button{or a few buttons maybe}.

    I however do not think $1000 for the new 70-300mm is such a horrible price - high yes but not way out of line. In my mind it should have been $800 or so. I figure that Nikon will learn the hard way like Olympus and Panasonic that long zooms can't be overpriced{both Oly. and Pan. have long zooms that started much higher than they sell for now}. But I can tell you that I know a birder or two who will go nuts over this lens!

    The way I figure it... its a zoom, it doesnt have a constant aperture, and to me, its no way worth that much. If it were around 7-800, I would consider it...
