Nikon 1 V2: Evolution, stasis or regression?

The review misses the whole point of this camera. The V2 has a huge attraction, by using the FT-1 Mount Adapter it is possible to mount pretty much any Nikon DSLR lens. Taking into account the dslr like autofocus and the X2.7 crop factor the excellent Nikon AF-S VR 70-300 f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED (around £330) becomes a 190-810mm lens, just great for birds and wildlife.

The lens, FT-1 and camera would weigh around 1100gr and cost $1300ish (but will come down). An APS-C camera with similar spec would weigh close to 5000gr & cost $9000ish. Sure, its a fact that the resolution of the APC-S camera would be superior, but would it be 3900gr & $7700 superior?
