Re: What would be your not-to-be-without lenses for your V1/V2/V3?!

I started this thread, so I better owe up to what my own preferences are, to this day, anyway ;-)!

Yes, I too love the 18.5, that have totally replaced the 10, and the 10-30.

Secondly, the latest lens, the 6.7-13, has been on my V1 more or less constantly since it arrived, no doubt the most useful native Nikon 1 lens yet. If not as fast as the 18.5 it seems to me just as sharp!

So most of us seem to agree with those two ;-)!

Third, as yet (the coming 32 sounds interesting) is the AF-S VR 70-300 is my favourite. Pretty heavy (around 2 lbs/ 1 kg), but really sharp, not least in the middle, which is what counts when you attach it to your CX camera. The VR works very well, too! I have used it on my D600, but then the whole package becomes a bit heavy (not least front-heavy) for me! The FT1 adapter and a monopod works much better than attaching a monopod to the D600, with this lens on!

I'd love to own a native lens with similar performance, but I guess that will not be coming in the next few years!
