  • Cheapskate that I am I would love the tripod mount for my 70-300.  PM me if you haven't already been hounded - obviously be more than happy to pay postage and something for your trouble.
  • Like most everyone else I've never seen another N1 though I've had one since the V1 firesale.  However I've only had my Oly OM-D a couple of months and already had a "snap" moment with a guy on a ...
  • Have you done that statistical analysis? I haven't.  But, an albeit brief sample, of users responding suggests to me that the demographic of N1 users that you postulate isn't representative.  By ...
  • I'm not sure you are right there - look at the gear of most of the posters here (including you and I) - few are exclusively Nikon 1 users.
  • Wouldn't be quite so specific about sparrows, but a system which is better for birds than the V2 / 70-300 combination I have.  That could mean M43 (probably Olympus) or just possibly a future ...
  • Fascinating and informative stuff.  I do wonder if the BIF conclusions might have been different if an Mi ii had been used with the PL100-400 rather than the M10.  The autofocus performance of the ...
  • As you see from my kit I have a v2 with CX70-300.  It is a wonderfully light and compact combination BUT I too was intent on going to M43 and bought a omd_m1 ii to go with a PL100-400.  However as ...
  • I think you are missing my point.  The lenses may limit the depth (and weight) of the overall outfit , but they clearly don't dictate the size of the body as the (APS-C remember) Sony A6000 series ...
  • Accepting what you say about the lenses, it doesn't really explain why the body has to be so big.  As you point out the battery isn't as big as the space for film on an OM-1 and there is a lot of ...
  • Super shot (make no mistake, I'd love to have taken it) , but I've seen shots I'd be similarly envious of  on M43.  Perhaps, in this case, start up time was key , but it won't generally be the case.
  • Not necessarily. If you do limit your photography to (say) views and portraits then the weight and size of a FF outfit may be fine.  If you want to photograph birds in the mountains the size and ...
  • It really depends on how critical you are and what you will do with your pictures or videos.  It's not just HD  but colour rendition as well.   If you are going to tweak images at all it makes far ...
  • It certainly seems that UK prices for Nikon 1 are considerably higher than US ones - particularly so in the case of the V3. It's almost worth importing and paying the duty - but if there is an ...
  • Replied in V1 or V2 ?
    It has never occurred to me that aesthetics would play any part whatsoever in the purchase of a camera! A house or car perhaps but a camera?! You cannot be serious!!!
  • Replied in V1 or V2 ?
    Interesting that we can have such diametrically opposite views on handling.  I had two V1s and never came to terms with the ergonomics. The mode dial seemed to have a mind of its own and rarely ...
  • Agreed.  I would have liked a V3 - but not at the prices I've seen.  A V2 (which already has a grip and EVF) can be had for less than £200.  I can't see myself paying more than £300 for a V3 with ...
  • Possibly - but perhaps your comments were rather derogatory . As YOU say there are many ways to skin a cat.
  • It wasn't intended as personal criticism.  It is just that, depending on the type of photography you do, the lenses you have, and whether you feel you can spend the time changing lenses to get a ...
  • Accepting the dork factor, carrying a camera with a biggish  lens (even an M43 one) or (worse still) a tripod is pretty dorky itself.  So if you are into photography you have to accept being a bit ...
  • I bought my RX10 second hand.  It came with a (very hard to remove) screen protector.  Do new ones come  fitted with one as standard - it affects how much of an issue a "scratched screen" is when ...
