He perhaps does not know his kidney from his liver... :)

You, perhaps, have not seen a certain episode of "The Simpsons" . . .

No have not. You right. I do not get Simposons where I live. :( Would love for you to tell me more. Is this a dialogue he uses? If yes, I am sorry to have missed the joke...

I'd sell a liver for such a lens. (You can get by on just one.)
Doh! Now I get it. You're a lawyer! You've got the disclaimer in parenthesis! ;)

Does that refer to one liver or one lens? ;D

That's only because the pixel density of the Nikon 1 is greater than any other interchangable lens camera Nikon makes.  Putting a super tele on an EOS M is pointless because the pixel density is the same as the 7D (which is considerably better than the EOS M in almost every single way), 60D, T2i, T3i and T4i.

Pixel density means absolutely nothing other than at 100% it covers a bigger area. The quality of the pixels is so much more important than how many there are.
I completely agree with you, but pixel density is the only reason a Nikon 1 has an advantage over other cameras. And the EOS M has no advantages over other Canon cameras.

Except size and weight. Because a slight reduction in those is so important for a body attached to an 800/5.6 lens.  :P
EOS 1D X, EOS M, and lots of lenses
