I have seen Nikon refurbs on eBay for £149 with 10-30 mm lens 12 months warranty.. whereas they usually go for approx  £95 - £129 used. They are Red but don't really mind. I'm just wondering if the V1 is 'much' better and worth paying more? Can you get refurb V1s? (in UK) I'm not in the loop on these models; though I have see enough to see the appeal. I forsee me using either for informal video at weddings and supplementing the D7000 and D600 I have. I prefer the video from the D7000 vs the...

It seems there is no way to turn OFF VR when using FX VR lenses (with FT1 adapter) on the V3.  As soon as you turn the camera ON - the VR starts up immediately and stays ON - until the camera goes into power saving mode (default 1 minute; settable to 10 minutes).  This is very different from DSLRs, where VR is triggered only when the shutter button (or AF-ON button) is pressed.  It also explains why my V3+FT1+80-400 combo drained the battery so quickly.  Initially, I changed the "Auto Power...

Has anybody tried the FT1 on a V3 - with an AF-S lens?  With a 105 AF-S VR Micro, 70-200 f2.8 VRII, 80-400 AF-S G, or 500 f4 VR.  What kind of results are you seeing? Did you upgrade the "L" firmware in your V3 (for the FT-1) to 1.20? Thanks.

I want to buy the Tamron A005 for my V1. For some reason, I can only buy it online, it means I don't have the chance to test it. Is there anybody who knows if the A005 is compatible with the FTI? Thanks guys.

Hello, I have been reading for a while on the forum, but can't figure out what is the best camera for my needs. At the moment I don't have a real camera, but want to get into photography, and also have some long traveling up ahead I want to capture with something better than my iphone/gopro combo. I have been visiting shops to hold cameras and get a feel for what I like, but as always there is compromise to be made, and I don't feel I have the knowledge to make the right choice. But let me...

Hi, I'm looking at a 1 series for birding. Not sure whether to get the 30-110 which I've read is very good, or just  go with the FT1 plus a cheap nikon lens such as the 55-200 which I also understand is good, plus has extra reach. Not sure I can justify both.  Here in NZ these 2 lenses cost about the same.  Any other lens options I can look at?. thanks, John.

Sonnyshine gave me an idea in his reply http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/52593133 Sonyshine wrote: Now I really enjoy my V1 as a complementary camera to my NEX7. The NEX7 has superior image quality but its not very good at action photography and any zoom you put on with an adapter makes the package big and unbalanced. The V1 on the other hand is great at capturing fast action and great with the FT1 adapter - I currently have the Nikkor 70-300 for winter birding and love it! I did not...

I currently own a couple of cameras. 1 Nikon D600 , 1 Sony A57 and 1 Nikon V1. I dont have any long lenses for the sony. For the V1 I have the FT1 adapter and for Nikon I have the 70-200/2.8 as my longest lens. I have found that 200 really is way too short in most circumstances. I havent used the 70-200 much on the V1 yet. I dont really want to spend the money right now to buy the super expensive nikon tele lenses. So my question is this. Should I go for something for my Sony. Say the tamron...

Yes there is the FT1 which is great but it also means the camera as a whole becomes bigger than it needs to be. I bought the 55-200 dx yesterday to use with my V1. And while I am happy with it I cannot help thinking it could have been a faster lens had it been designed for the N1. What size would a 150-500 F4 or a 400 F2.8 be if designed for the N1? It seems to me that if the bridgecameras have 25-600 F2.8 and full frame lenses are 600 F4 etc there should be fast teles or zooms for N1 and...
