I already own the lens, mint condition off eBay for $1600. On my A7sII, I have to add 2.7x digital zoom to fill the frame, which causes quite a bit of noise at high ISO, but it seems that high ISO on the Nikon 1's stops at 6400?


It goes to 12800.  If you are in the DC area and don't mind a $55 experiment we can meet up with my V2 and see how it does.

But in reality the noise performance will likely be about the same because zoomed in 2.7x you end up with the same surface area on your A7SII sensor as you would on a N1 sensor.

And except for the J5 it's an older, noisier sensor design than what is in your A7SII so it's probably a wash in comparison to the artifacts produced by digital zooming.
