Nikon 1 V1 FT1 problem.

I received a nikon V1 and FT1 today. Set up the camera withe pancake lens and then tried out the FT1 with my Nikon 7-200 F2.8 VR2 lens.
Got an error stating that there was no lens detected.

Undid the mount and remounted the lens. Same error. Checked the manual and menu to see if there were any software settings to make before using FT1 and couldn't find any.

died the FT1 with a Nikon, 500 F4VR, 300mm F2.8 VR2 and 18-105 Kit lens and got the same error repeatedly.

I suppose either the FTi or the V1 is broken in some way.

Sent the whole lot back to Park cameras for testing/replacement.

Just wondering if anybody else has had the same problem and if so did it work out ok?

I must say my confidence in what is supposed to be a pro system is a little shaken.
