Small-sensor + Long lens combo, is the Nikon 1 the best choice?

Re: Nikon 1 is unparalleled

I think there is something else that should be mentioned.

We all know the Nikon 1 cameras are not low light cameras. I don’t think anyone will argue with that?

There is a somewhat redeeming point. I’m going to pick probably the best case but to a lesser degree, it works with other examples. Say we place a Nikkor 400mm f/2.8 on the N1. It’s an equivalent 1080mm f/2.8 lens. So if you tried to get that focal length on a FF camera, you’d be looking at probably a f/8 lens, considering the Nikkor 800mm is a f/5.6 lens. That gives back 3 full f-stops of light.

Yes, badly needed on the N1s but you get the idea.
