    I just saw that too. I'm going to try to shoot my new-to-me V3 a bit more and post impressions.

    Nikon made this statement last year,just think if they brought out a DX mirrorless with the focus ability of the 1 series

    We announced the J5 about a year ago and that model is doing really well – especially in the Asian market, we have more than 10% [mirrorless] share... You can expect the J series especially to continue. This is really our mainstream model... However, we are considering taking the strengths of Nikon 1 – which is speed, portability, movie capabilities – to maybe refine the concept… to fit better to the market need... When you are talking about larger sensor mirrorless, this is definitely also a market we are officially monitoring in detail and we are really considering this segment.

    Definitely a missed opportunity on top of some reports saying that Sony has now passed them for #2 worldwide in full frame. Sad.

    Does this mean that Nikon is going to replace the V3 with an updated V series camera? Not sure that will happen, but I will be happy if they do. :)

    Quite possibly. If Nikon isn't working on a large sensor mirrorless they are a ship of fools. Nikon already has the N1 in play so it seems an easy upgrade to make another V series camera. Time will tell, in the meantime I'll shoot with my orphaned V1 camera & lenses. :)

    Another nail in the Nikon 1 coffin. Does this mean the V4 or V5 is going to be released soon?:D Yep when pigs fly.o_O I'll keep shooting with my orphans. ;)
