  • This is very disappointing. Their biggest potential buyers of the V3 are current V1/V2 users, who already have a FT-1 (if they have F-mount glass), or P&S upgraders (who have no need for the ...
  • I have a similar dilemma.  Buy the V3 (to use with 6.7-13, 18.5, 30-110 and FT1 + (my wife's) 80-400FX) or buy the 70-300 CX. (Although I'm afraid if I get the V3 that I'll be weak and get the 32 ...

    Yeah, I agree. While I'd like to see a normal fast zoom (at least f/2.8, if not f/2, from 24-120 (FX equiv)), the "slow" CX zooms are excellent and VR is very good, especially the 6.7-13mm and the...

  • A 13mm f/1.2 prime would be really nice, but would be $900 and wouldn't be particularly compact. A fairly fast lens that is fairly wide and doesn't protrude would make the V3 (especially w/o the ...
  • +1.  Preferably small like the 10mm.
  • If you want one lens, then I can't speak to the 10-100mm (which I don't have). But if you don't mind switching lenses, getting an 18.5mm (which is an excellent prime) to go along with the 6.7-13mm ...
  • On NikonUSA, under Tech Specs, for Lens Mount, they state "Nikon 1/Nikon Waterproof 1 Mount" Whether that's true or incorrect data entry, I guess remains to be seen.
  • I've not tried the new 80-400mm with a TC, but had a great time without a TC last weekend (D600), and was very happy with the results.  However, it's a 5x telephoto zoom that everyone says gives ...
  • Yes, for a $1000, it better kick some serious ass. However, a better comparison would probably be the D800 + 80-400G + 1.4 TC, cropped to APSC. This setup would give better performance (especially ...
  • Yeah, if the EVF is to replace the flash/GPS slot, they should have built-in the GPS and flash.

    The J-line seems to have been made for P&S upgraders. The V-line seemed to have been made for photographers with DSLR kits that they weren't parting with who wanted something to shoot with when...

  • Commented on Am I missing something here? article

    I'd also like to add that the 6.7-13mm is also an excellent lens. Yes, it's VERY slow, but the VR is very good and it produces very sharp images with good colors. I like it much much more than...

    I have taken pictures in San Francisco with my V1. You might not have noticed it because it's so much less conspicuous with my silent shutter and smaller lenses than my wife's D600 + 70-300mm.

  • Commented on Am I missing something here? article

    Even a 9-45mm f/4 with nano coating would be a big improvement over the 10-30mm kit lenses.

  • Commented on Nikon 1 V3: a quick summary article

    I wish they had made the grip built-in and used the space for a larger battery (the V1/D800 battery is excellent). It's not like the V3 will be pocketable (other than in a jacket or really baggy...

  • Commented on Nikon 1 V3: a quick summary article

    I have a V1, and depending on the reviews I may get a V3 (although I'm also considering an XT1 or EM1/10).

    However, my consideration when buying into a system isn't the camera, it's generally the...

  • If you don't need 120mm, why don't you consider the 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5G? It's available at less than half the price of the 24-120mm f/4G (new) or about a quarter used (lots of D600 kit lenses out ...
  • Probably not unless it was a second system used for reach while the same lens could be used for DOF isolation (or less reach with more IQ) on a D7200 or D610/D800.
  • The Sony RX1 is fixed lens so it's not a valid comparison.  The A6000 looks like a real threat to the Nikon 1 system (excellent AF, larger sensor and nearly equivalent weight with non-telephoto ...
  • I'm in too, a lighter weight 70-300 with better optics than the 70-300 FX (for probably more money) would be excellent. I agree about the 35mm prime need, as long as it's a 13mm pancake that's at ...
