You give up a great deal in IQ with a Nikon 1 with any lens. The 18-140 is almost twice as sharp on the D7100 than any prime you could put on a Nikon 1. Put a Nikon 1 zoom on the camera and you are not even one third as sharp as the above mentioned D7100 kit zoom combo.

Nikon 1 looks to be small and handy, but not a choice for good image quality.

I disagree.... this was taken with the V2, Nikon AFS 300mm f4 with a 1.4x TC (1134mm FF equivalent). The FT-1 adapter adds a world of functionality to Nikon long glass users IMO.

The TC-14EIII doesn't degrade the image much IMO...  Check out the original image to see the best detail.
