Am I a New Nikon fanboy ?
2

The Nikon V1 is my first Nikon since the F, F2 and FM3A, which are always gorgeous and fully functional. Bought the V1 € 231 with 10mm, the best buy of the decade! I added 18.5mm since. I watch the ever elusive 32mm in Amazon.Fr, and I am tempted by a second V1 - we'll see tomorrow

What I observe is that the capabilities of V1 with good primes in terms of IQ are substantially equivalent or superior to what can be obtained with the F's, the better Nikkor lenses - 28mm, 55 Micro, 105mm - the best BW films & developers or slides films available and an excellent Coolscan. What more? As for speed, flexibility, precision of focus and exposure, there is no common measure. Really.
