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.

Of course. As a matter of fact, I bought the V1 dual zoom kit before any fire sales ever been dreamed about and I still liked it and would do it again because I like it, but that was not the point.

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)

Are they similar in any other parameter then the aperture size?

100/5.6 = 17.86

200/5.6 = 35.71

300/5.6 = 53.57, let me guess... without checking the actual facts that the 28-300 is the fattest, followed by the 18-200 and the smallest is the 10-100.

Don't you really have a clue why that is?

They all have the same FoV and let the same amount of light hit the respective sensors.

I do not know why this place gets so stirred up about the DoF, there are different sensor sizes depending on which tool you need. I have three I personally use, iPhone, N1 & FX. I use the tool needed for the job and DoF required.

Because not everyone wants or can afford 3 "systems". My V1 and my N1 lenses are currently my only system. Naturally I would like to see Nikon step it up, so that I can continue to use that system without being limited in so many situations, like I am now.

And for that to be possible, Nikon has to introduce N1 cameras with better sensors and more faster lenses.
