The Nikon 1 Nikkor 18.5mm F1.8 is a fast 'standard' prime lens for Nikon's 1 System CX-format interchangeable lens cameras, offering a 50mm equivalent angle of view . This is the fastest lens currently available for Nikon's 1 system, which means three things. Firstly, it allows the use of lower ISO sensitivities in poor light. Secondly, because it allows more light onto the camera's sensor, the range of situations in which Nikon's hybrid autofocus will use the faster phase-detection method will be greater. Thirdly, it is possible to achieve better subject/background separation compared to the kit zooms. If you're investing in a 1 system kit, this fast, lightweight and inexpensive lens should be on your shopping list.
