Re: Why do keep trolling the N1 forum? (Compare 10-100 & 18-200 vas 28-300)

maybe i'm slow, but the 1 series lenses sure look smaller to me. much smaller.

Which for example?

The majority here got the N1 during the fire sales and found that these cameras are a lot better than the forums and web would make you believe.

Go compare the sizes of these three lenses, Nikon N1 New 10-100, DX18-200 and FX28-300 and report back... (All around 3.5-5.6)

Except they are not. 28-300 is, the other two are not.

SunnyFlordia is it you?

Ever see SunnyFlorida post an image here or have links to flickr and blog? Look me up, then report back.

Sorry miss SF, lol, not!

Sure they are around 3.5-5.6. They let the same amount of light hit the sensor.

10-100 = F4-5.6

18-200 = F3.5-5.6

28-300 = F3.5-5.6

I control the DoF based on sensor size, need shallow grab the D600 need huge DoF grab the V1. I get the difference...

Yes, you can do that, but in that case you don't have an equivalent lens, just a lens with equivalent FOV.

Isn't the whole point of using the correct tool for the job?

Yes it is, but...

In the above example, the D600 can be used for ALL the "jobs" concerning use of lens. By changing the aperture the D600 can create the same DOF as the N1 or the DX, and the 28-300 is an equivalent lens with the 10-100. The opposite is though not true. So, by your logic in this sentence, what would be the point of smaller sensor?
