The FT-1 with Nikon 35/1.8 also works beautifully, focusing quickly and accurately producing very sharp images. Informal comparison testing of lenses on the V1 show it to be significantly sharper with more contrast than the 10-30 kit zoom (no surprise), and slightly better than the surprisingly sharp 30-110 at 35mm at the minimum aperture of the zoom (surprise). However, the faster aperture makes it a very good alternative for portraits (my favorite equivalent focal length).

Isn't it great to have the FT-1 and these alternatives? For kicks, I think I'll try to find an adapter for Pentax K-mount. There are tons of old, very good Pentax glass to play with around my place!

I just sold the 35 and added the 30. I liked the 35 on the FT1 as well.

I think I may join you on that Pentax venture. I had a 55 Super Tak 1.8 in m42 mount that was pretty fun and very cheap. I ended up giving it away when I left m43. Might try the 50 1.4 this time around.
