Nikon J1 with 10-30 VR (refurbished) for $165

Saw this deal from Groupon:
Some reasons you may be interested in the Nikon J1:
- hybrid phase detection and contrast detection with 73 AF points. 
- Its continuous burst also allows for up to 60fps shooting at full resolution, though with autofocus locked.  With autofocus, it can still shoot at 10fps.
Drawbacks include the limited and relatively pricey lens selection, and very slow 1/60 sync speed.  The J1 also lacks a hotshoe.
