Trying to make up my mind. I have a Nikon D90 and 4 lenses that I am told could be used with the Nikon V2, however I would be getting the camera because it is a smaller camera to take around always. I would still use my D90 and tripod when warranted, Has anyone tried both cameras??


I've got the Nex5N and just got a V1 (great deals going on at B&H).  The picture quality of the 5N is certainly better, especially at higher ISOs.  The Nex system has wonderful wide angle and normal lenses; telephoto is supposed to be coming this year, but there are no details yet.  But the V1 has the best focus system in mirrorless cameras, and excels at telephoto.  Using the FT1 with the Nikon 70-300 for example is a real treat.  And the 30-110mm sounds like great bang for the buck (though I don't own it).  So the answer probably depends upon your needs...
