A D4 has 54 % Quantum efficiency and the D3s around 57 %..........

The quality of the pixels of the V2 is around the same level the pixels are just much smaller....

if you want better quality with a V2 yiou need faster lenses and for those you need deeper pockets !


Really? A standard Kit Zoom Lens for a D600, D4 etc is 24-85mm F/3.5 ~ F/5.6 which gives you physical apertures from 6.85 ~ 15.17mm. with a imaging circle >35mm . Said lens costs about $300. A similar lens for a tiny 1" sensor would have to be 10-30mm F/1.8 ~2.8 projecting an imaging circle 4x smaller than FX, why would such a lens require "deeper pockets"? A fuji XZ-2 has a longer zoom at F/1.8 to F/2.8 and it sells for $500

A F 1.2 lens needs deeper pockets the a F 4 lens..

I didnt say very deep pockets....

But the problem is that Nikons marketing department are hesitant to introduce

faster lenses that need deeper (not very deep) pockets and sell the Nikon 1 system at

a not very understandable price policy price point..... 1 year before at 9004 and the year after at 295$.....
