  • Well, I already had a nice expensive 40.5mm  UV filter from my 10-30 I was going to use. The hood has a flange that just begs to be screwed tight to the 11-27.5 but even the thin B+W UV filter ...
  • Welcome aboard!
  • This lens grows on me. When I don't want the V1 to be as compact as possible, the 10-100 comes out and rewards me for my choice. Bees at work, Jacksonville Arboretum and Garden, Jacksonville, ...
  • At a bare minimum, a true prosumer camera has to have a hot shoe or PC connector. Why they can do this on even the lowly D3000 series, but not the V series is beyond comprehension. I'm at the same ...
  • The hood arrived yesterday, so I'd say that was pretty fast shipping. Ordered on Thursday, shipping notification on Friday, arrived on Monday. I can't ask for more. At least it didn't come "on a ...
  • Nikon has frustrated me to the breaking point. Why don't the FX cameras have a focus system similar to my V1? Why don't the CX cameras support CLS and all those Speedlights I've invested in (4 and ...
  • Thanks. I've ordered that hood. I'm sure this is available elsewhere, maybe even Amazon, but since nobody (including these people) make mention of the hood being adjustable, or even a "3-in-1," it ...
  • I wonder how your photo compares to the lady using her camera-phone on the right side of the frame?!?
  • I think it would take something like the Sony A7 to pry my V1 out of my hands. :-) I now only use my D300 for paying work. All personal work is now gladly done with the V1. In a follow up comment ...
  • Hmmm... This is interesting. I had one of these three-way rubber lens hoods from Hama on my old Oly UZi (C-2100UZ), and I liked it. I wouldn't mind something like it for my N1 zooms (both the ...
  • No. I had the 10-30VR for 4 months before it crapped out. I've now had  the 11-27.5 for about a week. Barely had a chance to use it, but I like it. The 10-30 PD reminds me of a cheap P&S lens ...
  • Mine is enroute from China. Remember the song "I'd Like to Get You on a Slow Boat to China" by Frank Loesser? This one is on the return trip. Thank you Nixon and Kissinger for opening trade with ...
  • The 11-27.5 does not have VR, so the 10-30 trumps it in that regard. IMHO, VR is not as necessary in that range of focal lengths as it is in longer focal lengths, and if I need VR in the 11-27.5 ...
  • Replied in New v1.
    Manual can be found here in English. Handy to bookmark on your computer, or download to your smartphone (if you have the free Adobe Reader app).
  • Yes. The HN-N102 <> HB-N102 . I was thrown by the HH. In Nikonese: HB = Bayonet style lens hood HK = Slip on type lens hood HN = Screw on type lens hood HS = Snap on type lens hood The 11-27.5 ...
  • OK... It's the HN-102 . Sheesh. Nikon doesn't make this easy!
  • I can't find an HH-N102 , but the HB-N102 is for the 10-100 PD. I have that lens, and it's included hood, and can say with certainty that it's way too big for the 11-27.5.
  • The 10-100 is a 10x zoom. 30-100 is only 3.3x. All things being equal, it's much less expensive to produce a zoom with a shorter zoom ratio. Keep an eye on Henry's in Canada. Occasionally, they ...
  • The 11-27.5 arrived yesterday. Much sooner than promised. Used lens, but looks like new, including caps for both ends and original packaging and unmolested warrenty registration card. Anyone using ...
  • Just as a follow-up FYI in case someone else questions this... The SB-900 (and I presume any other Nikon flash with the SU04 mode) has two SU04 modes. Manual, and Auto. The Auto is an interesting ...
