expoboy52: From a longtime Nikon user . . . that was a big yawn. Pushing me closer and closer to the Sony a7.
Sony Fan boy..
Debankur Mukherjee: Why not have a 18-55 with internal focusing.....dont like the lens getting out so much while zooming...........
I have an AFS 10-24 mm lens. Will be very nice to buy this of this camera to use it for taking landscaping photography. 24.2 MP sensor does a lot of Wow factor.
Joe Braun: Nice. While this might not seem all too exciting, just look at the size and weight of this camera... Instead of going mirrorless, Nikon is competing by making the size/weight advantage of mirrorless cameras fairly insignificant. Not much bigger than the Olympus EM1 and actually lighter!
Olympus EM1 is considered too big for me. I don't quite like it. It is no better than an SLR. I think I like the Nikon 1 better.
dpLarry: Hopefully it'll drop to $299 soon.
$900 I can buy a 50mm f1.8 and D3200.
So you better wait. Go ahead and buy, no body will stop you. I like your style.
MrPete: Interesting that people can get SO worked up over a LENS!! I think it's rather simple. If it's a good vale for you, buy it. If not, pass it by. Don't you worked up people have any more pressing issues in your lives?
Meaning, they like this lens and they got not enough money to buy it. So they make big noises to bring the price down.
Trollshavethebestcandy: What is the percent of 1 users that spend $900 on a portrait lens?
Many will buy sooner or later because this is a great lens. My lens just arrived yesterday and I can see the Wow factor. I love it.
jcmarfilph: Such an expensive toy that only a diehard fanboy will buy this one.l
People are talking fanboys of Nikon. So you are also a fanboys of Canon, 4/3 etc. That's hilarious too!
Sam Carleton: So how are folks coming up with the f/3.2 equivalent? If the Nikon 1 is a 4/3 system, then you double the aperture, correct? That being the case, if you do the math the correct way, you square the aperture of f/1.2 and get 1.44, then multiple that by a factor of 4 (2 square) and get 5.76, then take the square root of that and get f/2.4.
This fits because f/1.2 is half way between f/1 and f/1.4, f/1.7 is one stop slower, being half way between f/1.4 and f/2, then f/2.4 is half way between f/2 and f/2.8.
So how are folks coming up with a f/3.2?
I don't 4/3 because the body is still big. Nikon is just right for me.
rarufu: The people wo are complaining loudest are the ones who never had the V1 in hands.I am really happy with the V1 and can't wait till the 32 arrives.
Yes I think so or there may be agent from other makes making an all out war for negative comments. I own a 32mm F1.2 lens. I love it very much. If the Nikon system 1 is not good, I won't have 5 lens already. Basically if you don't like this product, you don't make so much noise. Go ahead and carry on using other products. Give others who likes it a chance.
Kim Seng: I was on shopping today and I came to a well known camera shop in Malaysia and I asked the shopkeeper on how is the sales of all the branded expansive cameras. He told me that all the expansive branded camera sales are simply not moving. The only best sale camera is the FUJI polaroid camera. That shows that the economy is not good. Cost of living has recently gone up. The cost on houses are really really that expansive. People are working for end needs. They can only afford Fuji polaroid camera. I think the new models of cameras are coming out too fast. I brought my V1 a year ago. Now V2 is already out. I like V2 but I simply can't afford another now. Maybe spread to 3 to 4 years or 6 years before I can afford another new model. Nikon V1 is a good camera but V2 is what I can only dream of. Sorry Nikon for no sales on V2. Maybe at reduce prices I can consider buying another.
HowaboutRaw:The trouble with Nikon only started system 1 after 4/3 camera users have already into the 4/3. As I myself is a Nikon SLR system and system 1 user. It will be costly to move into another system even that system is very good. So bare with it if you are using one system. Unless you will have so much money to throw around than you can buy one camera after another. For new users for the younger generation, they will stick to Iphone.

I just got my Nikkor 18.5mm lens. Just put on a test shot at low lighting.

Ruy Penalva: You pay for a Nikon but get a Sony. Why not buy the original?
Who care who make what and who use what. The main concern is if that camera can funtion best I will buy it. It is totally nonsence to discuss such issue.
Jokica: "I find your lack of faith disturbing, this camera is not ugly! The force is strong with this one." - *Darth Vader*
Oh yes I agree with you. When V1 arrives, many say it is ugly. I bought one and the pictures taken were not ugly but really pretty. Now that V2 arrives, some say it is ugly too but I think there is quite a lot of improvement. All the the wishes comes true. I just wait to get a test drive on one.
qwertyasdf: "Q: How many people actually bought additional lenses for their 1 system cameras?
A: I don't have those figures, but we have an attachment rate that's higher than one, definitely."
I cant read on anymore, I have to ROFL!
Well I am a Nikon V1 user, I am planning to buy two more lens. I find it is a good camera worth investing and my needs. Gives me the good shots. I want to try the new lens soon.
Lots of hassle about the New 18.5mm f1.8 lens. I love the present 10mm f2.8 lens so this new lens 18.5mm is more than a like. I am enjoying my V1 now and this new edition will be a plus into my new collection. I have just seen the sample of pictures of the new lens in the Nikon Web site with pretty impressive pictures. Most important is that it can take good pictures is all I want. So my next deam lens I hope Nikon will come out with the super telephoto lens 100-400mm so that it can fully auto focus.
Nice camera with pretty good design. It will be much better if it is a 1" sensor and it will sell like hot cakes. Anyway this camera will also sell well.
raylob: I'm 999 so who will be 1000?!!!
Ha HA ha...a half baked mirrorless camera. That is why all the complaints. Canon is testing with litmus paper and now getting a taste of it.
LukeDuciel: there's one interesting feature - the touch screen UI. From the 650D review, the Canon multi-touch UI, by far, makes most sense. Other touch UIs I have used are all half-baked, Pana, oly, sony etc.
For all the Nikon, Panasonic, Canon and Oly cameras I used, I found Canon's UI design was the most efficient in operation, especially for consumer and prosumer models (For the flagship pro models, N and C are equally complex).
I just just cant stand having my monitor screen full of oily finger prints.
