I agree that the Nikon 1 system needs a dedicated macro lens, but it's likely that one will be released at some point, hopefully soon.

Until that time, if you have the FT-1 adapter, you could mount something like the Nikon 40 f/2.8 DX lens, which is an extremely sharp 1:1 macro lens. With the 2.7 times crop factor on the V1, the 40 2.8 would act as a 108 f/2.8 macro, pretty close to the classic 105mm focal length of the Nikon macros (the middle one of the 60mm, 105mm, 200mm Nikkors) one of the better focal lengths in a macro lens for shooting insects.

Other than that, you could look into a Raynox DCR-250, which are quite good.


Search for "Raynox DCR-250" on Flickr or Google images to see lots of example images from this setup.

Best of luck, Markus
