  • IMHO, Nikon won't launch fast zoom lenses anytime soon. The V3 is a compromise between V1 and V2. So, the theme is still small and fun. Not the DSLR replacement. For safari work, the D5xxx will be ...
  • Here's a different perspective. Gotta remember that Nikon One is new. So, your choices are limited. The V cameras will not be suitable for everyone. So, someone is bound to be disappointed. DSLR is ...
  • Replied in Small size
    I doubt that such a tiny camera can be useful for BIF. Suggest a well balanced combo based around the Dx and Dxxx. Nikon One is nifty for birds on the ground and in the water, at a great distance.

    We were stunned by the rear view. Hope you noticed how shallow FF DOF can be?
  • Replied in +1
    I agree
