Hi,

I am planning to buy a small and lightweight nikon 1 camera to complement my D5100 and was also thinking about getting a DX uwa lens.

I would like to know your opinions about the idea of buying a nikon 1 + uwa 6.7-13 instead of uwa dx lens for my D5100 ( advantahes, disadvantages, other options ? ) ??

Thanks in advance for your responses .

Greetings,

Marc

I had used the Nikkor AF-S DX 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5G ED on my D7000 as a UWA lens - It is useful for the cityscape, mostly in Europe with the old & small streets. Mounted on the Nikon V1 with FT1 adapter, it works mostly like the lens kit N1 Nikkor VR 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6.

- advantage: Usable on both DSLR DX & Nikon 1 bodies.

- disadvantage: more weight than the light N1 UWA Nikkor 6.7-13mm. Max. angle is 27mm (equivalent as the 35mm SLR camera) vs 18mm of the N1 Nikkor VR 6.7-13mm. Must have the FT1 mount adapter.

I did not take some photos to compare the Nikkor AF-S DX 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5G ED vs the lens kit N1 Nikkor VR 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6 on the N1 V1 camera body cause of bad weather here, so I can't give you my opinion on the quality of these lenses.

About the N1 Nikkor VR 6.7-13mm f/3.5-5.6

- advantage: Lightweight and more wide angle than almost FX & DX UWA lenses. Discrete when taking photo with a smaller camera.

- disadvantage: Usable only on Nikon1 camera bodies.

I intend to buy an UWA lens for my N1 V1 to have more wide angle and lightweight to travel but waiting for the street price and may be having third party lens get in such as Tamron.

Francois.
