Not surprised if they are going to introduce a new mirrorless system but it stinks for those who invested in the One system.

Art, keep them... when antique, they'll offer you a great investment return!

And I was thinking of the Nikon 1 AWS for shooting around water.  Oh well I guess I'll wait for their next offering.  Or I could buy a housing for the D610 that's almost as expensive as the camera itself!!


Don
==========================================================
Digital: D610 backed up by a D1x.  Quoted from an unknown source by a fellow planeteer, "Never get rid of a working D1x." I've got to agree.

Film: N90s, F3, F100, F4s, C330s. A few lenses.

Why film photography? I like shooting with the equipment. 6x6 Velvia slides from a C330 have an appeal all their own.

Why automated 35mm/Digital cameras? Event photography is about capturing moments. It often requires quick response. Well done automaton can be your friend or your enemy. It all depends on knowing what it can and can't do. "A man's got to know his (camera's) limitations." paraphrasing Dirty Harry...

Actually the AW1 is so unique its stll very viable kit for those that shoot in harsh environments.

Should enthusiasts grab them while they still can?


Nikon D-3300 18-55 VRII, 1971 Nikkor 135mm Q-Auto, Tamron 70-300 AF. Not much! But I'm working on mastering what I do have.
