I love everything about the V1's specs, except the absence of auto bracketing, which is something I use a lot with my DSLR bodies. So I'm holding out in hopes of a future addition of this feature. Curious about how others feel about this?
Honestly it hasn't come up for me. Maybe because of how I use the V1, which is different from how I use my D800. But if it were to be in there, I certainly would find a use for it. From Nikon's point of view, I suppose it's part of their positioning of the V1 as an advanced compact more than a second camera for an advanced user.

It's really not hard to adjust the exposure manually. Right click the multiselector, turn the wheel to + or - whatever value you want and hit the shutter. Sure it would be a little quicker with a bracket setting, but it's not a big deal to me.

I want bracketing for a very different purpose. - Sometimes I am not sure about the right exposure - Sometimes I am not sure about the right diafragm for bokeh. - Sometimes I would like HDR. - Sometimes I would like multi time exposures (That was my great help with Northern Lights in Norway last year on D3X. Do you know what exposure to use with Northen Light (I know now)).
I visited an air show recently, after many years. My D7000 and lenses were fine while I was static but when I started walking through the crowds, I found I needed something smaller with a viewfinder (bright day). I have looked at the V! , fast continuous autofocus, excellent but no exposure bracketing , which is really pretty useful when shooting into a bright sky. I think this is a deal breaker for me and I will have to look elsewhere, probably at the Oly EM5. As a committed Nikon fan that is rather a shame. I can only assume that Nikon don't want to threaten their lower end DSLR range, so have left out certain features but for a camera supposedly aimed at serious amateurs, it would seem they have rather shot themselves in the foot here.
