2 year old is not the problem, what keep me away is the image quality and expensive FT-1 adapter. I almost bought the V1 with dual lens bundle for $360. If Nikon cannot give it a magic sensor like the 18Mp Micro4/3, I don't see any future for the "1" platform. Nikon is having a tough time to move the inventory of any "1".

However, Olympus has a M43 starting at $299 with even better picture quality and larger sensor.
Where did you find an olympus m43 for that price?

I bought my Olympus P-EM1 with kit lens for $199 from Black's early this year. I have seen one Future Shop store also selling for the same price last May or June.

Read the actual reviews instead of some automated comparison.

As I said, J1 isn't a bad camera at all, and you likely won't find a better camera at this price. E-PM1 is a little more expensive but worth it if you can afford it (and find it).

Got the S110 during Christmas season for around $300 (+ free canon case). Such an amazing camera in such a small form factor.

So it's already been said that this Nikon J1's picture quality isn't as good as the the Sony RX100 but how does it compare to the Canon S110?

I have the S110 as well and it's an amazing point and shoot camera.

better than S110. S110 is among the best of compact small sensor but J1 and RX100 use 1" sensor.

Remember when J1 was priced at £550 ($900 Canadian)? it was $650 in North America.

Crazy.

Works great for me and it's more than 2 years old...

Me too! The GF-1 is a classic! The models that replaced it just don't cut it for me. I'm sticking to my GF-1! Solid metal body, lots of manual controls, super-reliable. It's a thing of beauty.

The original dpreview reviewers raved.
