I have spent the last hour searching thru forum post on the subject of using the Nikon 1 series with the FT1 adaptor and a Kenko Pro TC 1.4 (or others). Sometimes there is a mention of no AF with the V2-FT1-TC, other times there is not. Many of these posts went back to 2013 however. So my question is; using the latest firmware on everything, and the latest Kenko TCs, is it possible to achieve any kind of AF with either the V2-CX70-300, or the FT1-DX 70-300? Thanks in advance, --Rube

Nikon AF-P DX Nikkor 70-300mm F4.5-6.3G VR, it sounds interesting, especially on a N1 camera. Great reach, sharp, cheap (cheap build too, but for the price. . . ) Graham turned me on to it on another tread. But : Is it compatible with the N1 V2 with the FT1 adaptor? --Rube

I am trying to figure out which of these combinations would, giving cropping, give the most 'reach,' And am having trouble. GRIN. 1. V2, FT1 Nikon 55-200 variable aperture (540mme) 2. Pen 5 (16gig m4/3s) sensor, 75-300 mkII lens (600mme) 3. d3200, Nikon 70-300 variable aperture (450mme) The sensors, number of pixels, length of the lenses are all different. With cropping, which would give the longest reach?  Any takers?  And thanks in advance to anyone who tries to help with this. -- Rube PS...

Hello, These endless discussions about Jon leaving this forum are really boring... For those still interested in cameras and pictures, I have a question. I tried to shoot the moon tonight with the D7200 + Tamron 70-300 VSD (450 mm equiv), and with the V1 + FT1 + the Tamron (810 mm equiv) That was just for fun. I post the images for those interested, but that's not the main purpose of this thread. I had to manual focus with both cameras, which is not surprising. I used spot metering, but I had...

After trading in my Sony a7II for a Nikon D750 I would like to reanimate my Nikon 1v1 and the FT1 to get a nice lens- setup for birds etc. that doubles as a sports + portrait-solution on the D750.  Back before I switched to Sony I had very nice results with the Nikon 70-200/2.8 VR II but this lense is quite expensive which is why I am looking for a cheaper alternative. Candidates are: Sigma 100-300 f/4 EX DG HSM (good reach, cheap but so stabilizer) Tamron 70-200/2.8 VC Sigma 70-200/2.8...

Has anybody tried shooting macro with a DX 40mm micro (with FT1) on a J5? The built-in pop-up flash is nearly useless because the large FT1+40mm casts a shadow. I'm using the pop-up flash, instead, to remotely trigger a SB900.  The pop-up successfully fires the SB900, but there is absolutely no exposure control. I'm in Manual mode with shutter at 1/60sec - I've tried slowing SS down to 1/30sec with no improvement.  With Flash Control set on "TTL" I get massive underexposure; when set to...

I'm really bad at figuring out these sort of things, conceptually, so bear with me... I'm trying to figure out which gives more effective pixels on the subject: Say I have a 400mm lens.. On the V2 with a 400mm lens (using the FT1) I would have approx 1080mm at 14MP On the D500 with the same 400mm lens I would have 840mm but at 21MP So which gives me more pixels on the subject? Please disregard any other factors i.e. IQ, focus limitations, etc. I know about all that :) Basically I'm just...

Hi all, I bought a J5 not too long ago. Despite some VERY irritating simplifications (no live update of the exposure or histogram and a shallow 20 frame buffer, no EVF...WHAT WERE YOU THINKING NIKON?!). *ahem* rant over. Anyway, I'm happy with the unique properties of the N1 system. That 2.7x multiplier is worth the investment alone. For BIF and fast moving subjects, I will probably get a V2 or V3 at some point later this year. Now, I am an improving macro shooter, and am looking for what...
