Camerahoarders has published a new review on the Nikon 1 V2. Just like the original J1 and V1, the V2 is an unusual camera, utilizing a small 1-inch sensor with low MP count but capable of producing incredibly fast burst rates and very fast auto-focus / C-AF as long as there’s enough light. Other mirrorless entries can learn a thing or two from the V2 here – using incorporating PDAF was a very clever idea. But once the amount of light falls, it reverts to CDAF mode and here, it lags seriously behind the market leaders – mostly from M43 (such as Olympus E-M5, E-PM2, E-PL5, Panasonic GH2, GH3, G5, etc). If Nikon had used the sensor and CDAF mechanism from E-M5, the V2 could have been a monster of a camera. Oh well, I can dream.
