i use the v1 along with my d600. the difference in iq is HUGE. however, for small web posts, the v1 is fine. for anything large, printed or cropped, it's junk.

You know what's really junk? A v1-size crop from a DSLR, compared to the same lens using a v1.

Huh? In no circumstance is a Nikon 1 comparable to a D4, D800, D600, D7100, D3S ...

If you crop down to the same sensor area (13.2x8.8mm) it should be. That is a savage crop.

You would have to compare raw files. The examples shown (Sun Bittern etc) do look soft, but some of that could be caused by excessive noise reduction for JPG.
