Nikon 1 V3 is No Match for Cheaper MFT Cameras

Nikon's premium compact interchangeable lens camera, Nikon 1 V3 falls noticeably short of Micro Four Thirds based counterpart which is cheaper and smaller.  Well, at least that's true according to DxOMark.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GM1 which is currently listed on Amazon with 12-32mm kit lens for $659 scored 66 points compared to Nikon 1 V3's 52 points.  Nikon 1 V3 is slated to go on sale on April 17, 2014 and is currently listed at $1196.

Olympus' legendary OM-D E-M5 which has changed the landscape for Micro Four Thirds system scored 71 points despite being almost two years old.

OM-D E-M5 can be had for significantly discounted price right now since the introduction of its successor, OM-D E-M1 with much improved spec.

Olympus OM-D E-M5 and 12-50mm Lens $840

It is probably one of the best bargain you won't see again any time soon.

DxOMark does not incorporate human factors that can not be easily quantified in such a systematic testing, but it is known to be quite reliable and uses industry standard methods for its testing.

I think this clearly shows the advancement in Micro Four Thirds format and the obstacles faced by image sensors that are too small such as the one used in Nikon 1 V3.
