The Nikon 1 + FT-1 is a great alternative for people that can't afford a D800 + 800mm f/5.6.

Sure, I'd prefer the second setup but no one is offering the $18k to buy the lens.

Don't forget that the FT-1 offers auto focus and exposure with Nikon's AF-S F-mount lenses. This is not to be taken lightly when doing bird/wildlife photography.

I'm a photo hacker. I use my expensive equipment to destroy anything in front of my camera. This is a special skill that can never be realized by low life photographers. A nurtured skill since the 1970's.
