I couldn't believe, there are 21 lenses for nikon 1 out there.. until I realized, they all come at 2-3 colors :)

At least it's not so curvy.. nice to see oly designers chill out a bit. I guess it still needs to be such embarrassing retro as it's the pen..

M Lammerse: My colleague described it once as the best nonsense digital compact camera. I think he's quite right.

but I think, you were spot on :)

There are few similar cameras out there, but no one has the controls, ergonomics and size right.

I used to have the grd and dp1 and I found the fixed 28mm great for nonsense photography

he is :)

buy it for joy and fetish only. I also always loved the company for how they treat customers. It's just a shame that it's so expensive now in my country.

I don't see any real advantages over any of smaller system cameras with 28mm pancake.

The ricoh GR is really compact at least.

nice. I'm still keeping the V1 just for the wideangle lens though, but this looks amazing.

good move from ricoh, but too late for me. I wish pentax had this lens year ago.

cgarrard: Ricoh undoubtedly beat all other makers in terms of adding features through firmware. Gosh I love this company.

no doubt about that. I wish nikon did the same with nikon 1.

RobG67: This is not a Nikonos. Not even close. I have a V1, and it's a great little camera and a useful adjunct to my D700s, but daring to compare this half-hearted attempt at an underwater camera to a Nikonos is tantamount to heresy. Wash your mouth out with silicone grease, you silly person, you.

try to use flash on this one

thats olympus-like ugly. Hard to believe the same company makes the GR .

vroger1: Check Voightlander's (Cosina) pricing for a similar lens that should give you an idea. With the "Leica" brand it will probably be more than a bit more. The 25mm 1.4 is $600. This should at least be double.

considering that nikkor 32/1.2 is $900 and this is Leica + OS, $1200 sounds even optimistic.

In reply to:

PaulSnowcat: I cannot understand... Nikon 1 gives much better quality with the same price and size... Why bother buying Pentax Q?

thanks to very big flange distance, the nikon 1 lenses are not that small, as you would expect given the sensor size.

Nikon interface and controls are lame, but they have some nice lenses + it seems, there will be a macro and another fast prime in recent future, while pentax Q lens lineup is lacking in many areas and there are no signs of anything new for a long time now.

nice camera with good enough image quality, but it just makes no sense for me with current lens lineup.

compacts with same sensor size have f1.4-2.8 zooms these days, so I believe pentax can do better than 2.8-4.5 for standard zoom and I don't think that primes should be slower than f1.4 except some wideangles and long telephoto.

any info about size and weight?

In reply to:

panos_m: A question about the price. At 30-35mm and f/1.2 is there anything cheaper independent of format?

depends, how you look at it.. since it's the only one, it's both cheapest and most expensive.

the lack of competition always means one thing - extra $. Fortunately there is a at least competition from other systems and if a poirtrait prime is what you want, suddenly m4/3 with 45/1.8 makes much more sense.

In reply to:

marike6: Finally a manual focus Nikon 1 lens, and M/A to boot. Nice.

An f1.4 portrait lens at half the price would have been nice, but prices should fall.

It does look kind of bad-ash on the V2, hopefully it's as sharp as the 18.5 1.8 is wide open.

agreed. The focus ring is nice - I thought it's fake like on 18/1.8 first.

In reply to:

kadardr: The only question: why no IS? Otherwise I am a buyer.

that is the last think I would want from f1.2 lens (especially not for poirtraiture, where you're more likely to be limited by subject movement) Not to mention it would add size, cost and it's very hard to implement, when the aperture is so fast. I guess $900 seems too cheap for you :)

Link | Posted on May 14, 2013 at 09:17 UTC

I dont get the size - zeiss website says 86 /81 (with caps?) , but when pictured with the camera it looks smaller to me.

full frame Zeiss 18/3,5 designed around bigger sensor and much longer flange distance has about the same lenght - I think these should be much smaller to go with compact camera concept

nice camera, but needs some (wide) compact ef-s primes to make sense

Mister J: Like the weight trim and touch screen.

But no articulated screen - shame.

but that's why they could make the mody thinner. I'd drop the flash too, but obviously majority wants it.

I really like the concept.

this camera would be a nice complement to my 5D, shame there are no compact wide angle ef-s prime lenses
