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

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.
