have you guys seen this?MAN, I hope my lenses work with whatever Nikon comes out with next!!!
DSLR = A body that focuses fast, takes interchangeable lenses, with a built in hand grip that takes better photos than a compact.
As to electronic viewfinders, IMO the technology will advance to where the image will appear identical to that seen on ground glass.
Maybe its just me but I much prefer the noise of the shutter over no shutter sound. I picked up the V1 when they first came out. I liked the small package size but the IQ and lack of shutter sound turned me off. I believe it had an option for mechanical shutter or no mechanical. The mechanical was a little better but I returned it.
