Been thinking about the Nikon 1 a lot. Especially after a trip to Las Vegas last week. Most of the pictures I took there I could have easily done with a Nikon 1. And with a FT1 and my 70-300 I could have had some killer zoom opportunities. I've read a lot about the trend for people to move away from DSLRs to capable but much lighter mirrorless bodies.

So I'm curious what things you guys thought of before getting a Nikon 1. Myself, I may wait until the next revision of the 1 system before I buy in. But something makes me wonder if I'll move away from my D700 and a lot of my lenses to do it. After all, I am just a hobbyist who doesn't have a great deal of spare time anymore...
