    another problem - product bundle. nikon should allow us to purchase body only.

    I think everybody expected that. It's simply the little brother, they had to upgrade the J to the latest sensor.

    just realised - the v3 is not in nikon singapore's list

    http://www.nikon.com.sg/en_SG/produc...s/nikon1.page?

    does it means that nikon singapore will not sell v3?

    Interestingly, the J4 is already online... Maybe they need to clear old V stock first, could take some time here. Or maybe the V3 is simply too expensive for SG.

    thanks. was considering the 1 system and 70-300mm for the safari. you are right the price is quite step that could be a entry hurdle.

    Nikon SG doesn't seem to want to dabble in mirrorless anymore.

    And that's why they released the J4 here now?

    Yup, very likely! http://www.nikon.com.hk/tc_HK/produc...n-1/nikon-1-v3
    Usually I'm happy if the products I'm interested in aren't being sold here. It makes the decision much easier to get it overseas and save some money instead of buying it at a higher price locally. It's a pretty good service Nikon is doing here!

    yeaaah, it is good for a frequent traveler. for ordinary people, we are depending on the local distributors. and if v3 will not be sold here locally, the v2 price will never go down ...... sigh ......

    She mentioned there was no interest ... not sure how they measured that lack of interest!

    Wonder how you get that logic.... Even if they sell in SG, you can still buy overseas?

    Not selling here means not servicing here also. Means no parts no support.

    Judging by how the V1 and V2 sold in Singapore, I don't blame Nikon for such a move.

    They should just focus on their DSLR.

    Actually I thought the 1 series is pretty good. It is selling quite well in Malaysia and Japan actually.

    It was moving quite well in Msia and SG, but there was not much innovation?

    I am not keeping tabs on mirrorless, but the ones I played with like the Fuji X-T1, Sony A6000, I think they have better designs and features than the Nikons.

    Just like Nikon's compacts, I find they lose out a lot compared to those of Canon, Fuji, Sony. Their forte is still in the DSLR methinks.
