V1 is small but HEAVY
Sep 21, 2011

Main reason to buy some compact system is that they are smaller and lighter; V1 is reasonably small but, actually, the heaviest mirrorless system. Acording to Nikon's "Nikon1_lineup," most relevant weights are:

  • V1+flash: 453gr (383+70), more than any APS-C or 4/3 with flash and EVF (yes, the flash has NG 20 and bounces, but ...).

  • 10-100: 530gr, more than Tamron's 18-270 PZ (a DX lens) and than the "enormous" NEX 18-200. There is no power-zoom equivalent, but Pany's new X 45-175 weights a mere 210grs. V1+flash+10-100 heavier than my 550D+18-135.

  • 10 f2.8 pancake: 77gr vs NEX 16 f2.8, 67gr or Panasonic 14 f2.5, 55gr.
