  • I was sooo happy  when I could afford the 6.7-13mm, because for me 10mm is not wide enough. To me 10mm is my standard lens. The big bummer as I see it, is that I'd like a fixed 6.7. I don't need ...
  • I don't have a 32mm, but it's kinda short for basketball. I always used a 105mm 1. I found my V1 to be bad for any sports in good light or bad because of having to post each photo. Thought I could ...
  • The former postings were all right on. The number one factor for me is that it is light, the lenses are light and small. Important because anything bigger or heavier and I faint. My DSLR stuff ...
  • Spent the last two days shooting a lot of photos. Finally went to something that had potential. The 6.7-13mm lens is now my main lens. These shots are near dusk or after, all hand held for I hate ...
  • Replied in V1 & batteries
    Thanks Tord, it really does help!
  • Created user reviews Sweet super-wide lens
    This is now my #1 lens for the N1 system. It is built solid with very little distortion! Very sharp!! This lens is worth every cent. Only reason not five stars is variable aperture (I sooo dislike ...
  • Replied in Blah Blah Blah
    Very nice variety of photos and moments. Just show's that it is not the equipment, it is the mind & eye of the user that counts!!!
  • Thanks to all who posted and commented about how wonderful the super-wide zoom was! I finally saved up for one and must say it is all the post have raved about. This is my favorite Nikon 1 lens. ...
  • Replied in V1 & batteries
    I have two V1 batteries, a Nikon and some 3rd party Japanese. Both just don't hold a charge for more then 150 shots. I do have the timer on longer because of getting tired of on/off while ...
  • Yes I can understand the loss of love. Yet it seems that so many are willing to switch to something else, that has its drawbacks too. The biggest drawback to me is the weight and cost of lenses by ...
  • Created discussions V1 & batteries
    I don't know what I'm doing wrong, but I find both of my batteries fully charged only get about 175-200 photos before charging is exhausted. I really hate to get another battery since the V2 & V3 ...
  • I had two Leicas in the film days, very nice, but. . .so few of us could now afford one not to mention extra lenses.
  • Fantastic photo!!!
  • Very nice indeed! Thanks for posting, it helps me see what the lens will do. Next goal is the wide zoom (only $200 to go), then begins the saving for this lens. If Nikon 1 is still around I may ...
  • Faster lens range would be nice. . . but I want to be able to use my SB-800 again! Normal hotshoe please!!! And add HDR, not that I do this, but would like to learn.
  • That's what was needed, thanks so much!!!
  • Right you are!!! Thanks so much, so frustrated Saturday. Never in my life have I had to clean so much. Can't believe that a few tweeks from a camel hair brush and blower is all that was needed. ...
  • Created discussions V1 monitor died, why?
    Last Saturday was a strange day for the V1. First it somehow changed modes from S to P and 10fps. Since I've never used this was really getting upset because taking photos was so long, more so ...
  • Excellent photos! Thanks for sharing.
  • Through the entire 80s I carried a bag with seven primes: 20, 24, 35, 55, 85 f1.4/105 f1.8, 180, 300 f2.8; and three Nikon F2a with 2 motors, a Quantum battery pack, sunpak 522 flash, and a ...
