Im still waiting on the EOS-M3 with DPAF.
I think you are in for a very long wait.

It should be out in less than 2 years.

The sensor is still the one thing that bugs me the most. It's not even m43 sized. It's TINY.  If Canon were able to do this with an APSC sensor it would be an incredibly impressive camera.
Even better if they were to put it into a weatherproof, drop-proof and water-resistant body.  Now, that would be something I'd seriously look into.

Isn't this nothing more than capturing stills from video?

Nikon is taking an interesting direction with the v3.  By sticking with a tiny sensor and making big improvements to the AF and FPS, they are definitely differentiating their Nikon 1 from competing MILC's. 

I suppose they are targeting sports photographers, but once you attach a big telephoto lens to one of these, you defeat one of the main advantages of a small mirrorless camera - size and weight.  We will see how the market responds.

On the other hand, how much €€€ do you have to pay for a camera that does 20fps with servo af? Plus the price is further reduced because you'll wear down a mirrored dslr quickly @max fps, while with mirrorless you can really engage the "shoot first, think later" mode at no additional cost except your time to find the shot you want.

40 full rez raw files in 0.7 seconds ≠ video

However, that also shows they CAN sample the whole sensor at full rez and fast video speeds - which is something I think they're going to use to some video advantage in the near future.  If they can keep the thing cool enough!

Yup. I'm pretty much waiting for the AW2 unless they drop the price of the V3 by a few hundred dollars.
That 300mm zoom lens also needs to be fantastic for the system to be worth getting.
