Nikon 1 system lens quality - DxO scores
Aug 1, 2013

I am very interested in buying in to the Nikon 1 system but am a bit concerned about lens quality, particularly as measured by DxO scores.  The best of the lenses tested so far is the 18.5 f1.8 at a score of 13.  Scores of other Nikon 1 lenses go down from there.  The new 32mm f1.2 lens has not so far been tested; it may well achieve a better score.

While I understand that the true quality of a lens is measured by more than the parameters in the DxO score I am looking for some help in putting these low scores in perspective.  Is it because these lenses are used exclusively on a relatively small sensor camera?  Are there other factors at work here?
