Really compelling, but for the price. Ugh - it better slice-and-dice and powerwash the siding.
On a more serious note, despite having three lenses (presumable the tele and wide are ready and in sufficient volume by release date of the camera kit), the key will be what other lenses can you use with it? Every mirrorless to date has had the same common challenge - having a sufficient "system" behind it populated by lenses and accessories that give depth and breadth. I can see this being very popular once someone comes up with F and M-mount adapters. If the Hybrid VF improves the manual focusing experience, consumers will pony up!
Wow - fantastic. I won't be an early adopter, however, as I have more than enough cameras for the time being, and want to see what else comes out this year from others. I just have to avoid holding one!
The sensor arrangement looks interesting - even if I don't know what an AA filter is - and might just be great in a D400, as opposed to the noisy Sony 24mp sensor, which looks no real enhancement over the 16mp sensor in the D7000.
Having owned the Fuji S2, S3 and S5 and then having Fuji abandon the camera line has left a bad taste with me. Two things you have to ask yourself before buying an expensive Fuji - will Fuji stick with it this time? Will Fuji develop a system of lenses, strobes, accessories, etc?

It's not as if Fuji had its own line of lenses and accessories that were proprietary. They just couldn't compete with Nikon technology. AI and AIS lenses didn't meter on the S3; their 12mp sensor was really a 6mp with some type of interpolation to make it act like a 12mp. I enjoyed owning the S3, but the new things from Nikon are, IMO, just better.
The point being that I wouldn't shun Fuji just because of their decision not to compete with Nikon. Their products have always been "top notch."
The heavier, larger, and more expensive V1 is the first "Pocket" camera that I have been able to hand hold and get an unblurred image. The fast and accurate FullTime AutoFocus are the main reasons. Because I can use my D7000 batteries and shoot HD1080P at 30fps with FullTime AutoFocus, this was a bargain after the instant rebates on camera and 3 lenses. The FT-1 adapter works very well with my existing Nikkors.
