I was thinking about whether Nikon's choice of sensor size will have an impact on whether the 3rd party lens makers will make lenses for the Nikon 1 system. There are lots of lenses already available for 4/3 size sensors, and I suspect more to come. The third party makers can use the same basic lens design in different mounts for DX and FX cameras, and there are several camera makes that each lens will fit. The same will apply to 4/3. I wonder if the design and production costs for lenses soley for the Nikon 1 can be justified by the 3rd party lens makers. Some longer focal length lenses might be adapted, but fast wide angles will need a new design. Another consideration is if Canon comes out with an EVIL camera in 4/3 mount. If Canon goes that route, Nikon will have a sort of orphan mount, and Nikon 1 owners will have only one source for lenses.
