What is the opinion of everyone about using the "foot" on the new 1 Nikon 70-300VR CX?? Now, I would have never mounted my V2 with the FT-1 and 70-300VR FX lens on my tripod without mounting it on the FT-1 mounting screw. But for the new 70-300VR CX it seems to me that the lens weight is only slightly over the weight limit of the camera lens mount and Nikon does not officially warn against NOT using the foot...their only comment to me in an e-mail reply is that if I am concerned about the...

Hi, I just upgraded my V2 to firmware version 1.2 (both A and B). I read somewhere that Nikon V2 firmware has some issue that it should not be used to upgrade lenses' firmware. Did Nikon solve this issue already ? Or this is still an issue? Thanks.

Hi, If you remember there were problems with V2's EVF and LCD. The EVF was jerking when panning and both EVF and LCD had red dots in shadow. After a while Nikon solved these problems with a new firmware but what is the situation with V3 ? Is the EVF gives clear and smooth view ? --Cheers János

I am considering getting an AW1 with either a V2 or a V3. If I am correct, each camera requires a different battery and in the case of an AW1 with a V3, different memory cards. I can live with that and I'm aware that the V3 EVF occupies the hot shoe; None of these issues are deal breakers for me. I intend to use the AW1 on vacations in the water and either the V2 or the V3 as a walk-about camera. I currently have a Fuji EX-1 with 35mm and 18mm lenses and several film cameras. I have a couple...

Hello, all!  I'm new to DPR and this is my first post, which comes in a question. I (only) own and shoot with three V1's and have most of the glass for the N1 system, like the 32mm 1.2, plus 4 dx lenses.  My question is, with regards to image quality, especially sharpness, would the V2 and V3 be sharper than the V1? Let me apologize in advance if this question seems absurd or if it's been covered before. Thank you!

After letting my Contax G lenses sit unused for quite a few years, I got myself an NEX-6 and the Deo-Tech adapter v2. I have the 28, 45, and 90, so it seemed to make sense to get one adapter that would work easily with all three. The adapter isn't perfect, but the autofocus works reasonably well. I often end up using it in manual focus, which is also easy to use. I haven't touched my DSLR since I got my NEX, and I'm having so much more fun taking pictures. However, I've been a problem. The...

Does anyone know if the 4/3 50-200mm v1 lens will focus more slowly on an E-M1 with MMF-3 adapter than the 50-200mm v2 SWD version? Thanks!

Hi, need your help here, I have a J3 and I plan to get a V2 (to get the EVF). Is buying the WU-1b and a relevant app in android mobile the only option to make timelaps video or interval timer shooting? If I buy it, which free app is the most appropriate? I DslrDashBoard good enough? Thanks!

The Nikon 1 system is not the largest in the world, so this is not a very large problem. At present, I have a J1 and five lenses, about 8 filters, battery charger, spare battery, flash card reader, spare flash card, lens pen, remote.  I'm outgrowing the little Nikon bag that is intended for one camera body and up to three lenses. What I would like is a modest amount of storage space that will hold all my gear, plus maybe a bit of extra space for a V2 body when I finally upgrade.  I'll keep...

Hello, I wonder if anyone can help me with some questions: Has anyone got the following to AF on the V2/Ft-1, pre or post firmware upgrade, please? Tamron 17-50 SP, 28-75 TSP? Sigma 100-300 f4, 50-150 2.8, old or OS? Is the Nikkor 16-85 or AF-s 24-85 sharper than the Series 1 kit lenses on the V cameras (Nikkor 18-200 is not; Tamron 17-50 is)? Is the 30-110 sharper than the 10-30? Does upgrading the V2 firmware muck up the AF on the Siggy 120-300 OS or any of the above lenses? Thank you...
