Got a V1 last week, some thoughts and pictures
Feb 16, 2012

I thought the 1 series was junk when it was announced but after reading lots of reviews by pros (not dpreview) I decided to get a V1 with the 10-30 and 30-110 lenses.

Well, it does have plenty of issues like the image review, lack of external controls, etc. but it's so small and quick that I like it. Earlier I had bought (and returned) a Sony NEX-C3. I got it with the 16mm f2.8 lens and planned to use my Leica lenses on it but I didn't realize just how much I hate composing on the rear LCD. The V1 EVF is great. Also the NEX-C3 shutter is really loud and the sound is very annoying. The V1 is completely silent at 60fps!
