  • Bokeh isn't why you want faster lenses in a small camera system.  Less noise and the ability to shoot in less light is why you want faster lenses in a small camera. A 50-100 f1.8 CX zoom for $929 ...
  • A pro system requires pro lenses that cover the trinity ranges. The lack of fast lenses compounded the issue with a noisy sensor.

    At the end of the day you can easily replicate DX with Fx but you can’t replicate the crop of CX.

    Because the crop factor is the largest size and weight reduction of the entire system.

    To second Nung, fast lenses were a missing critical element in the N1 line up and they balance just fine on the N1 just like they will balance fine on whatever mirrorless FX or DX body Nikon ...

    "Chinese consumers have been abandoning stand-alone cameras in droves, causing the revenue at Nikon’s Wuxi factory - the sole facility by the Japanese company in China assembling complete cameras ...
  • If you want to do more astrophotography then you may want to go Fx sooner rather than later. The additional bulk of the body is fairly small in comparison to the total bulk of the telescopes. Again ...
  • I guess it’s amusing to see a lot of answers without folks asking some basic questions like what you’re going to shoot the most (miniatures, street, or something else) with CX, your budget and how ...
  • My most used lens on the V2 is a toss up between the Sigma 17-70 f2.8-f4 and the 10-100 CX so the 17-70 is my favorite FT-1 lens. Sigma 50-150 f2.8 is use for sports. Occasionally I use the Nikon ...
  • I have one of the waterproof Nikon P&S...AW110 or something.  It's just "okay"...worked in the pool and rain but not so much when we did some easy snorkeling at the Dry Tortugas. The really cheap ...
  • Seems like you hit the beach quite a bit...I would recommend a cheap J1 off eBay and an underwater housing from B&H for $50...gives you an inexpensive (but bulky) all weather/underwater option and ...
  • The fast zooms still have the 2.7 crop factor. Which is still 0.7 more than m43. Thats more than the difference between FX and DX. I don't see any significant advantage of m43 over APS-C. 2.0 crop ...
  • A 1" DX mirrorless doesn't need to be larger than a V2 with a deeper flange for F-mount. Nikon 1 doesn't do well because of several missteps Nikon has made with it.  Whether those can still be ...
  • Replied in pixel density?
    J5 pixel density is 17.91 MP/cm² ( 2.36 µm pixel pitch) D5600 pixel density is 6.62 MP/cm² ( 3.89 µm pixel pitch) You can't really crop DX to CX...the density difference is just a bit too much.  A ...

    You are in the N1 forum. If birders could "fill the frame" with a 70-300 on FX they'd pay the minor weight penalty for the body and keep shooting FX rather than CX. Instead they have to buy a much ...

    The D800 and D7000 are pretty close in performance when the D800 is in Dx crop more. DR and SNR are a function of pixel performance and that's driven by pixel size.  Every time you see a 1 stop ...

    Yes and no. A FX + 50mm f1.8 will have better IQ than a CX + 18.5 mm f1.8.  A FX + 18.5mm cropped to CX will look about the same aside from resolution which would be low. IMHO the most flexible ...
  • I really don't think some of your detractors will be happy unless the scenario is tweaked such that the V1 pictures look better than the D750 pictures. N series IQ has never been great (even ...
