    my friend has her mind set on getting a pink kit.

    Just wondering, how does the Noise compare against older DSLRS like the d80 or even d90?

    They make it lousy so that they can sell you the accessories to enhance it.

    Agreed it really has some nice features and IQ is actually also quite good for sensor this size.

    However, being priced similarily as nex and more expensive than m4/3 counterparts, this is one reason that puts me off.

    In fact stock of j1 arrives while i was collecting my A77 at mscolor last wed, i was quite tempted to try and buy it on the spot, but after hearing the price, i dun even want to see it.

    I saw the lens uses a 40.5mm filter, same as my PnS. Bought a CPL one for my PnS from T K Foto.

    wow, took my friend's nikon j1 for a test run. its super pink. Pink lens, pink lens hood, pink strap, pink pouch!

    too bad only got to try it after 7pm so only indoor lightning and night shots. i think the image quality is pretty good. cant wait till the adaptors for nikkor lenses or a 1.8 CX lens is available.

    The camera was confusing to use for the first 10 minutes but after that it got pretty easy. if youre a nikon DSLR user, you'll feel at home with it.

    only thing that slightly annoyed me was that i couldnt set a minimum shutter speed for auto ISO(even the D70 has that option) so the aperture/shutter priority modes were quite useless in low light because it kept choosing stupid shutter speeds like 1/8 which is not that good for handheld shots. ended up shooting manual.
    maybe TS knows how to set? pls let me know if you do

    is there any button to adjust the ISO manually without diving into the Menu too?

    I heard the pink set has a totally pink box too, any photos of the package?

    At the street price made more sense than the ridiculous RRP that nikon set albeit still on the high side . The IQ was fine for the sensor size. What amazed me was the bokeh from both the 10-30 and the 30-110. It was quite outstanding for a kit lens considering the sensor size. If faster lenses were available I might just consider the V1.

    Here are some images taken from my V1

    Taken straight from camera with 100% crop to see the details :
