PhotographyBlog had a quick interview with Nikon Germany and they made clear, that they will continue to offer the Nikon 1 product line also outside of the Nikon DL P&S. The J5 is very successfull... Quote: How is the Nikon 1 system doing in Europe? Is it still being promoted? The Nikon 1 system will definitely still be be around in the future - there are no plans to withdraw it from the market, as you can tell by our stand which has a large Nikon 1 area. The Nikon 1 J5 camera is selling really well, allowing us to achieve up to 10% share with just one camera model in some European countries. Again, the smaller sensor size gives the Nikon 1 system some key advantages when compared to larger sensor cameras. Source: You must be logged in to see this link.
