I also considered Nex. But when I found out how big 55-210mm on a Nex is compared to Nikon's 30-110, I went with V1. Plus, if you read the photozone's reviews (links provided below), Sony's lenses are not rated (star rating at the end of the reviews) as good as Nikon's.

Indeed, and that's my experience as well - so I have Sigma and the Sony-made Zeiss lens for my NEX, and the best Nikon 1 lenses, as yet: 18.5 & 30-110, for my V1, plus the FT1 adapter, and a good selection of Nikon lenses that work as well on either camera!

Digging up this old thread as I am looking for direct comparisons between the 18.5 for the N1 and the 35mm for the NEX. The 18.5 is in my current price range but I had my heart set on saving for the 35 as its fast, has OSS and is a reasonable size compared to the camera.

I see you have the 30 Sigma lens for the NEX, how do you find that compares with your 18.5? Would you consider getting the 35mm sony over your current lenses for increased DOF control (and OSS in the Sigma's case).
