Jan 22, 2013

I've been debating whether or not to try the Nikon V1, but I'd really like to get some feedback regarding the 50/85mm 1.8 G lenses on the V1. What's really keeping me grounded to M43 is the 75mm 1.8! The lens is spectacular, but I run a full Nikon FX kit (D800 bodies) and like the idea of consolidating my kit to include full battery and lens compatibility (with the FT-1 adapter). Anyways, just wanted to get some feedback from those who have used both.

My experience with the 75mm 1.8 is that it's incredibly sharp at all apertures and distances. Truly a lens with little weakness. Just wanted to know if the 50/85mm G lenses can compare. Thanks!
