Wow- this is a really cool camera!

As a total beginner, this definitely peaked my interested in photography. Picked it up on Amazon for $496.95 with the 10mm f/2.8 lens. I went with this because this was the cheapest way into the the Nikon 1 series and the V1 didn't come with a flash. That and it didn't seem that the upgraded J2, J3 was worth the extra cash.

I know this is a controversial camera, but I think this is great for me- it's cheap, it's got some lenses, it's got a built-in flash, and it's compact and stylish. I would have been bored with a P&S and wouldn't have shelled out the cash for a DSLR or wanted a big camera.
