An alternative that uses the J1/V1 with the FT-1 produces a crop of sorts (of the lens's image) but uses the entire 10mp sensor (no crop of pixels), and the 300mm maximum focal length of the 28-300mm and 70-300mm lenses is equivalent to 810mm. This would also be ike using the lens on a D5100 with a 1.8x TC, but without any image degradation caused by the use of optical elements (the FT-1 has none), and no reduction of aperture that Nikon's own TCs produce - although they aren't compatible with these lenses anyway.

If I understand it right, the pixel pitch and thus the need for a higher resolution of the lens would be be much higher on the J1/V1, so no free lunch here? I would guess it might result in similar IQ as using the TC, but it wants to be tested....
