Do I really need another V1?
4

OK, this is going to sound a little like a post from a beloved forum member that I shall not name but here goes. I work in a family retail business that has somewhat odd hours. We are open 9-5:00 Mon, Tues, Wed, Fri, Sat, Sun, all year round. Yup, closed on Thursdays; weird eh, that's what our customers say! So, Wednesday is my Friday, get it? I enjoy a cocktail now and then (especially on Wednesdays) and tonight I elected to explore the gin family as my usual supply of Pino Noir had gone dry. In a weakened state I thought I would peruse KEH and MPB.com to see what N1 gear was available.

At this time a little further background would be in order. I already own two V1 bodies, various lenses and a white J-1 which I acquired as a refurb kit with 10-30 and 30-110 as well as a nice little Nikon bag a few years ago for a nice price. In the mean time, my original 30-110 has succumbed  to the dreaded "aperture unit failure"  and I have been using the white 30-110 on the black body and not being a fan of Canon equipment (they got lots of white lenses!) this just didn't sit well with me so tonight I hit the "buy" button on a white V-1 body in (supposed) like new condition!

More to follow.
