I'd never even thought of buying one because I have two dslr bodies, but I recently heard that there is an f mount adaptor that can be used with this.

I'd be quite interested in bolting on my 300mm f2.8 & TC-20Eii.

Anyone else tried this? Its only for fun, I'm not looking for world class images. The camera would also come in handy as a point and shoot.

You may want to buy the V1 instead, i think it will be better in using the EVF of that when composing your ahot..

If you want more of a point and shoot, get the J1 b/c of the built in flash and b/c they are dirt cheap right now - refurbished.  Entire outfit w/10-30mm and 30-100 mm came to less than $400.  As a P&S supplement to my DLSR, I love it.

The V1 needs the external flash for P&S use, but has more flexibility.  With a flash, it probably will cost $200 more than the J1.
