  • Just be careful when choosing the adapter. The reviews for Konica to Nikon 1 adapters are not very good... It is a trial and error for the IQ of lenses on adapters for Nikon 1. My Sigma 18-50 f/2.8 ...
  • Here is a picture I took with a Zeiss Planar T 50 mm f1.4 for Contax/Yashica mount (I paid $17 in a flea market in Denmark) with a cheap dumb adapter with V2. Since the camera cannot save aperture ...
  • Then my vote would be V2. I find it easier to use the viewfinder for long zooms in general.
  • How about both? V2 with 70-300 and J5 with 10-100? I was recently in Amazon for medical mission but had 2 days off.  I used V2 with main lens (either 70-300 or 30-110 with macro extension tube) and ...
  • For what is worth (I am not careful with my equipment): 1. My USA-W J1 (bought within 3 months of release) never gave me problem. The 10, 10-30, 30-110 are also OK. 2. My refurb J1 + 10-30 + 30-110 ...
  • To be honest, I don't think using adapters are a good option for Non-Nikon DSLR users. Either FT-1 is expensive or manual adapters are limiting. I find 70-300s kind of useless without VR/IS except ...
  • I am in the same boat. I was saving up for a 70-300CX and was going to buy it as soon as a V4 was announced. My plans are on hold for now though. I don't want to buy a $1000 lens for a system that ...
  • I own both but use 10-100 much more (30-110 is sharper but not enough to compensate the loss of versatility).  I would consider getting refurb J3 with 10-100 for $349 at buydig. You can either ...
  • I love my V2 and do not regret the purchase (at $400) a while ago. I skipped V1 due to lack of PASM dial and other controls and got a J1 for "my wife". However, 1 issue I do not like on my V2 is ...
  • General Travel alone: V2 with 10-100, 18.5, Planar T 50/1.4 CY (with adapter) +/- Samsung EX2F for weird angles and panoramas Travel + Birding: V2 with 70-300, J1 with 10-100, 18.5, Planar 50
  • A few months ago, while in Copenhagen for a conference I saw a street vendor selling an old Contax camera with a Zeiss Planar T 50 mm F1.4 for $18 so I snatched it right away (BTW I do collect old ...

  • Replied in It depends.
    It helps with larger lenses to minimize shadow of the lenses. I find the swivel /tilt kind of useless because even the external unit is too weak for decent swivel/tilt.  I tried an optical slave ...
  • I have both lenses and the V2: - Balance: on my V2 I prefer the balance of the 10-100 than 30-110. Maybe I am just used to heavy DSLR lenses... - Quality: We usually carry at least 2 cameras with ...
  • Replied in is V2 for me?
    I love my V2 but I agree with everyone that it is not the best choice for your purposes.  The main reasons is the lack of articulating LCD and it looks like a camera. I have noticed that people ...
  • Has anyone bought one and tried on a V2? I am interested on one to use in travels for night photography and caves when I am reluctant to carry the D700 + lenses.  My attempts to use optical slave ...
