From DPR Nikon rethinks 1 System and cuts 2013 forecast citing poor sales: Digital Photography Review Nikon says sales of the 1 series is off, and mirrorless market is shrinking, so they are rethinking the approach. I have nothing at all against the 1 series, and know some very happy users. I think overall, there are still too many cameras makers (heck, even Casio is still around!). It'll be interesting to see if Nikon thinks to abandon mirrorless (is that what Canon is doing with the M?) or do a larger sensor, or go with fixed lens compacts (with larger sensors and better lenses). I wouldn't mind the latter at all!
