"DXOMark tests J1"

DXOMark scientifically tests cameras and comes up with hard numbers to rate them. The J1's sensor looks good for it's size:

The J1 ranks close to the latest micro 4/3:

Here the J1 vs. the Fuji X100 vs. Canon G12:

Very respectable. The overall ranking meeting or beating m4/3 has to be seen as very positive for the 1 series. IMO I am encouraged. Honestly, I would have liked a higher ISO rating, being a high ISO kind of guy, but looking at less than half stop diff from m4/3 again very good.

I realise the platform has been somewhat controversial but with all those 2.7 crop lens patents over the last few years there have been some signs.

So - IQ - check.

Specs - check.

Next we need to get some hands on reports regarding AF and probably many other areas of interest. On the AF side there is this concept that the camera reverts to CDAF in low light. Potentially important we understand this better. But hey, this camera is not the D4 or D800, and I recognise that going in.

Anyhow I continue to admire Nikon's strategy here, it is all at once bold, uncertain, a let down to some and innovative/visionary. Nikon continues to consciously choose the more difficult path, leaving some explaining to do at the sales counter, instead of some disingenuine but glib numbers.

Looking forward to next steps.
