I don't get it. Nikon has an 800 F/5.6, so does Canon, but you need an adaptor for the Nikon 1 series.

Or are you talking about the crop factor of the sensor, because that actually has nothing to do with focal length. A 300mm is a 300mm, unless you add a touch of magic to it somehow and it grows. Sensor crop factor can't physically grow a lens in focal length.

I always refer to my lenses for what they are even on APS-C, a 300 is a 300, the 500 is a 500 and the 800 is an 800. I can't change that no matter what sensor is stuck behind it. Its even written on the lens !!

All the best.


Hi Danny,

The longest N1 lens is the 30-110, which is equivalent to the 55-210 in NEX terms. You would need that expensive FT-1 adapter to do more.


Yeah and they do have a nice long zoom focal range coming in a 300mm on the longest end. Note I said 300mm What the sensor does with it is up to the sensor

Still a nice small system with a great crop factor as you know Steve. That image the guy sent me in RAW is just amazing in the details department. I can see why nature lovers like that system a lot, the small sensor crop factor is remarkable while still being sharp for a 1" sensor. It does make sense in a way. I can get close to the details in that image he sent me of a Kingfisher, but man I have to work for it. Not many can get as close to a Kingfisher as I can. He nailed it !!

All the best SteveO and it is a good system with limits like every system. See ya.
