    I've got one of these and they are nice little cameras. I actually sold my EPL-2 and kept the V1. The LCD is the best I've seen on any camera period.

    I just wish the controls where better and it had a flip screen.

    I really liked my J1 when I had it - primary reason I got rid of it was lack of native glass.

    Now with the ultra cheep 18.5 ƒ1.8, ($185) and the refurb'd V1 body @ $249 USD is tempting....:smile:

    Yeah I had the 18.5 for a bit, and sold it (thinking my V1 would sell a little quicker than it's taking). It was a nice lens. The camera really benefits with a speedy lens.

    For me it was a lack of legacy lens. Everything adapted is simply too long with the crop factor and too big for balance. It was fun to use my 70-200 on it a few times, but back then they didn't allow for continous focus with the FT-1 adaptor. Now they do with a firmware update.

    Where are they $250 at?

    I got a whole V1 kit going. It's strictly for AF glass though. The 2.7x crop kinda sucks for MF lenses. The C-AF with the FT-1 is pretty cool though.

    Nikon 1 is a good cheap wildlife solution with that monster crop then again there's always Pentax Q with another insane crop factor.

    Both also work well with c-mount lenses, better than MFT.
