Just found this blog – if anybody is interested in how the new lens looks mounted on the V1 and J2.

Nice big pics at the bottom of the page.

No VR + No Flash + Erratic Auto ISO = Fail

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF1 + Panasonic Lumix G 20mm F1.7 ASPH: No VR + external EVF + bult-in flash (guide number of 6 m at ISO 100) = Great success.

Nikon 1 V1 + 1 NIKKOR 18.5mm f/1.8: No VR + bult-in EVF + external flash (guide number of 8.5 m at ISO 100) = ???

Nikon 1 Auto ISO has been improved with the latest firmware update!
My J1 in P mode (Auto ISO 100-3200), the same scene:
Firmware 1.12: ISO 1600, 1/15s, F/3.5
Firmware 1.20: ISO 3200, 1/30s, F/3.5

VR on a 1.8 prime?

Auto ISO?

Try setting ISO, fast enough to not need VR............and if you need flash then get one.

Sounds like operator error to me.

Wold be cool, but isn't exactly my top priority on a prime lens

Auto ISO is nice with M mode. Together with auto Area AF mode, that's a good set up for quick snapshots (or street photography). Only downside is, that there is no exposure compensation available in M mode. That would be very useful.

I should have expounded a bit - what I meant was auto ISO is handy.....but if the circumstances dictate turning it off is an option - which is pretty much the point of controls, no? Meaning it's up to us the photograhper to utilize the device to best meet out needs at a given time.

Let's drop SunnyFlorida's irrelevant troll!

This is our first new N1 lens (apart from the shorter zoom).

Hmm, "I should have expounded a bit" ....sounds like operator error to me , open mouth stick foot inside, rinse and repeat.

Erratic Auto-ISO? No problems here since firmware 1.2

I have looked at your other posts. Are you sure you want to keep chipping away at your credibility by basing your arguments on outdated or incorrect information? Once you get that reputation around here, it cannot be undone. Post wisely.
