Nikon 1 70-300mm for bird and nature photography

I am patiently sorting out the new and used long lens possibilities for my intended usage. I prefer aps-c for its 1.5x fov, snr and dof. However having tried the Sigma 50-500, the weight, while tolerable for me, detracted from my overall enjoyment. I am willing to consider lenses up to 6lbs for this format, but I am also willing to consider smaller formats.

With Nikon 1 cameras I can see noise and jpeg artefacts making their presence visible to a greater degree than aps-c format.

The Nikon 1 70-300 seems to be a fine, sharp lens. Any input on this lens on a new Nikon 1 camera such as the J5 is appreciated.
