Re: Nikon Spanked By m4/3 in DPR Review?

The camera is really only a firmware update away from being very good for the user base they were going after. The issue really stems from the algorithm used for shutter speed and ISO and can easily be fixed by Nikon. I started using a V1 to test it out for long lens use vs. M4/3. Two things I will say: the 30-110 lens is good/tiny/excellent VR. If you want to take advantage of the crop factor the 70-200 f2.8 (approx 190-540mm) makes for a very fast long lens. with very fast AF. I was testing out that combo last weekend.

These were essentially right out of the camera a crop on one.

100% crop

This was a mistake at f11 but also gives a decent idea of VR at 1/60 at about 520mm
