  • I love my V2 and do not regret the purchase (at $400) a while ago. I skipped V1 due to lack of PASM dial and other controls and got a J1 for "my wife". However, 1 issue I do not like on my V2 is ...
  • General Travel alone: V2 with 10-100, 18.5, Planar T 50/1.4 CY (with adapter) +/- Samsung EX2F for weird angles and panoramas Travel + Birding: V2 with 70-300, J1 with 10-100, 18.5, Planar 50
  • A few months ago, while in Copenhagen for a conference I saw a street vendor selling an old Contax camera with a Zeiss Planar T 50 mm F1.4 for $18 so I snatched it right away (BTW I do collect old ...
  • Added 2 photos to their gallery

  • Replied in It depends.
    It helps with larger lenses to minimize shadow of the lenses. I find the swivel /tilt kind of useless because even the external unit is too weak for decent swivel/tilt.  I tried an optical slave ...
  • I have both lenses and the V2: - Balance: on my V2 I prefer the balance of the 10-100 than 30-110. Maybe I am just used to heavy DSLR lenses... - Quality: We usually carry at least 2 cameras with ...
  • Replied in is V2 for me?
    I love my V2 but I agree with everyone that it is not the best choice for your purposes.  The main reasons is the lack of articulating LCD and it looks like a camera. I have noticed that people ...
  • Has anyone bought one and tried on a V2? I am interested on one to use in travels for night photography and caves when I am reluctant to carry the D700 + lenses.  My attempts to use optical slave ...
  • Yes I do like it as a travel zoom. My basic setup for travel: Lite: V2/10-100 + Samsung EX2F (24 mm + easy Panorama + Deeper DOF) Lite+ (+ low lite): V2/10-100 & 18/1.8 +/- Samsung EX2F Birding: ...
  • Replied in Battery Life
    Unless you have a base camp to return to a solar battery may not be the best solution because the only time you have to change your battery may be at night. Non Nikon batteries are cheap enough to ...
  • For Disney a smaller sensor camera (your phone, 1/2.3, or 1/1.7) for greater DOF + V1/30-110 or 10-100mm may be a better choice depending on what kind of pictures you want.
  • I do not have the J4 but I believe J4 is the same generation as my V2. My Sigma 18-50 2.8 EX HSM and 50-150 2.8 EX HSM works fine using latest firmware on FT1 and camera. But honestly I almost ...
  • thanks for all replies. I think I will buy one of the older TGs on promotion due to size and versatility.
  • Created question thread Is J1 Waterproof case worthy?
    I am not a diver.  I always had 1 waterproof camera for pools, beaches, rain, water rides and rare snorkling.  My current waterproof camera needs replacement after faithful >5 yrs. I am debating ...
  • I have only very brief experience with the Pen series but for your purpose of travel and particularly portraits I would recommend you stay with M4/3 and add lens for portraits. I believe Nikon 1 ...
  • Went skiing with J series. Bad experience as expected.  Made sure that I had V series before I went back... But no articulating LCD? Bought refurbished WiFi dongle for $19 and problem solved using ...
  • Replied in J4 + 10-100?
    I use the D700 for portraits, snapshots in caves, indoor sports.  General indoor pictures depends on the DOF I need to decide between N1 vs D700. Occasionally I may even use the Samsung EX2F if I ...
  • Replied in J4 + 10-100?
    Personally, I would get it and sell the J4.  I really don't think J4 add much to your V1.  Maybe you can sell both and get a V2? I use the 10-100 more than any other lens. the next most used lens ...
  • I think the key question is "What is your need?" Yes, Formula One race cars are serious but good luck with using it to carry your Harp to your debut at Carnegie Hall... Here are some of my Serious ...
  • Beautiful pictures in the Album. Does AF hunts with this setup? thanks
