I heard of others using a non-nikon lens converter in the manual mode on a V1 so I went out and bought an inexpensive one just to play with using my DX lens. Well so far I can not find a way to make it work. I have since heard of chipped adaptors?? I'm not ready yet to pay the cost of the camera to get an FT1. Any words of wisdom here. Is there a workaround?

should the little red light just below the shutter speed dial on the konica ft 1 be on all the time ,  even with the camera shut off ?   it has film in it;    looked in  the manual ,  but couldn't find anything other than that little light indicates film is rewinding ,  or something like that.   not if it stays on .    otherwise camera seems to working correctly .    thanks .

I have tried my V2 with my FT1 + 70-300 VR FX lens and it wont lock focus past 200mm, I noticed it is worse with lower light. I couldn't find any notes if firmware updates will help with this, I currently have version 1 firmware for my V2 and FT-1. It's not really a big deal but I was curious if I was doing something wrong.

HI, from my research it seems that Nikon F mount lenses work well on a nikon 1 camera like the V2, using the Nikon FT1 lens adapter. My question is whether my F-mount Tamron 150-600mm lens will also work well, allowing autofocus. Again, from online research, it seems most third party lenses will not work. thanks in advance, Kurt

I am aware that the FT1 adapter is fully compatible only with AF-S lenses. Could someone confirm the following: 1) It still allows exposure compatibility with AF as well as chipped MF lenses, correct? In other words, although AF is inoperative, auto ISO and PSAM modes are all available, true?  2) Have there been any compatibility issues with 3rd party lenses? Should e.g. Sigma or Tamron (motorized) lenses be fully compatible with Nikon 1 cameras and the FT1 adapter? Thanks! --Check my...

Hello, I'm new to this site and I was just wondering, what are your guys favorite lenses to use with the Nikon 1 system with the FT1 adapter?  I usually shoot at bboy events (dim lights, lots of unpredictable movement) and want to see what other people use. Thanks in advance!

Hi Guys, I was wondering, if any one know, is there any Adapter with Aperture Ring for Nikon 1 system. I already have an Adapter for my Nikon 1, But it dont have Aperture Ring. The Idea which I have in my mind, is using any Nikon F mount lens, specially AF, in which you cant control the Aperture on lens. instead of using FT1 mount. Looking for a cheap solution :P

Anyone got/using a dedicated extension tube set, ie not the full size ones via the FT1 adaptor. If so, which make and what CX lenses are you using with the tubes ??? Thanks.

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...
