I attended the PhotoPlus Expo at the Javits Center today and got to handle the new V2. The Nikon rep told me it was supposed to remain in the display case, but she was kind enough to allow me to handle it. Because it was a pre-production demo model, there was no battery in it. The V2 has a nice feel to it. I am currently shooting a D3S so I really liked the front grip. The on-board flash is a nice idea also.

I prefer the V2 over the V1. Since the pricing is similar, I doubt anyone will choose the V1 over the V2. I'm glad I held off on buying a V1 because the V2 has piqued my interest.
