6.7-13 seems to be a sharp lens. See this thread.

At $500 a piece, it is about half the price of 12-24 f4 DX ($1199 at Amazon).

I've sold off most of my DSLR gears so it is a no brainer for me.

Maybe I should use 10-24 f3.5-4.5 DX for price comparison.

10-24 DX is about $850 a piece.

Thank you very much for sharing your opinion.

I was indeed considering the 10-24 DX. I will wait to decide untill there is "real life" information available from the new CX UWA lens ( but indeed the CX UWA lens is very promissing !! ).

I hope the CX UWA lens will come in "kit solution" with the Nikon 1 camera bodies. This should reduce its cost.

Marc,

I'm afraid that an N1 UWA kit is a forlorn hope, since the announced price of the lens alone is $500 (That is supposed to be a frownie). However, it does have VR, and I expect it to test well!

Hi,

You are probably right ... but in any case, the price of the lens should become lower after the introduction of the lens. Anyway, I will wait untill the next Nikon cashback action to eventually step into the Nikon 1 CX world !!

"Hiking" combinations with zoom lenses to consider IMO:

1) lightest as possible : Nikon 1 + CX lens(es), but lens changing maybe necessary ( maybe this is acceptable with the smaller CX lenses ?  ).

2) light : nikon 1 + CX UWA + D5100 + Dx lens 18-55 VR/16-85Vr/18-105VR ( this is a solution that does prevent lens changing while hiking, what I prefer ).

Greetings,

Marc
