Rough test of 3 CX lens.....
2 months ago

I didn't manage -yet- to get a V3, but I found a new 70-300 CX !

For a quick test, I used my "old" V1 and the 3 lens I had with me today, the 6.7-13, 10-100 (non-PD) and the 70-300 ! I shot them at ISO 400, aperture fully open, and hand-held ! I shot RAW and only converted to JPG + resized to 1200-800 pixels ! Nothing more than that !

Here's the 6 images, each one at the shortest and longest focal length for each lens (the Exif datas are embedded). The light was very flat, but it gives an idea of the sharpness, contrast and color rendering of those lens.

Nikon 1 V1 ,Nikon 1 6.7-13 f/3.5-5.6 VR
1/800s @ f/3.5 at 6.7mm (35mm equivalent : ~18mm.) - ISO 400

Nikon 1 V1 ,Nikon 1 6.7-13 f/3.5-5.6 VR
1/500s @ f/5.6 at 13.0mm (35mm equivalent : ~35mm.) - ISO 400

Nikon 1 V1 ,Nikon 1 10-100mm f/4-5.6
1/800s @ f/4.0 at 10.0mm (35mm equivalent : ~27mm.) - ISO 400

Nikon 1 V1 ,Nikon 1 10-100mm f/4-5.6
1/800s @ f/5.6 at 100mm (35mm equivalent : ~270mm.) - ISO 400

Nikon 1 V1 , Nikon 1 VR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6
1/400s @ f/4.5 at 70.0mm (35mm equivalent : ~189mm.) - ISO 400

Nikon 1 V1 , Nikon 1 VR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6
1/320s @ f/5.65 at 300.0mm (35mm equivalent : ~810mm.) - ISO 400

I must say that at first sight I'm very happy with the IQ of the new 70-300... The VR works very well, it's quite fast and allow to shoot at low shutter-speed, like 1:250 (for a 810mm lens) !!!
