The combination of this fast little devil, the FT1 adapter and the Nikon 70-300 f/4.5-5.6 VR, set me back around 1500 dollars and I think it's great to get this focal length (810 mm), autofocus, image stabilizer, speed (4.5 5.6), EVF (1440K pixels), weigth (aprox 1200 grams, all included) and these pictures, love it! I had to thank the speed here, landed for 2 second on 15 ft distance. This is with 400 ISO at around 220 mm (600 mm for 35 mm film)

Much smaller than I had expected. Smaller than my V1, takes the same lenses. The control layout is quite different, I am happy that they moved the PASM dial to the top as I used to constantly hit the control when it was on the back of the camera. Also nice that is is a more standard PASM control now. The high speed motor drive settings are not what I was expecting so this is taking some tinkering. Granted I have only owned the camera for a few hours. Exposure is good, colour balance also good ...

Therefore any opinion expressed here comes after having tried and consistently used a range of other 'tools' as well (Canon G10, Ricoh GX100, Samsung NX10 + primes, Canon 1D / 5D II / 60D + L primes, Fuji ...

I have just spent 3 weeks in Australia and left my D700 & D90 at home and just took my Nikon 1 V2 and 10-30mm & 30-110mm lenses. I took everything from Xmas parties, Xmas lights on houses, landscapes and nature. The photographs of koalas and kangaroos at 110mm (297mm, 35mm equivalent) were sharp, the sunset photos were great although I did need to under expose by -0.3 to -0.7 to get the best of the colours. It's great to wander about with only 500gms weight instead of the 5+ kilos of the D700 ...

The specs are good. It is a Nikon. But what impressed me was the good handling, ergonomics looking at the design don't tell how good this camera fits in your hands. Problems: None. The Price.
