Re: First Report on V1

Your analysis is very close to the conclusions I have come to on the Nikon 1. I have decided to skip it for now and take another look when faster primes are available. Hopefully by then they will introduce a body with better external controls.

I am using a G1 with 100-300 for birding (obviously not in-flight). The 2.7x crop sounded interesting but after considering the resolution advantage of say the G3 (16mp vs 10mp) then most of the crop advantage is lost and without a long native CX mount lens you would end up with something much heavier. But the faster AF would sure help.
