Skip down to TL:DR if you dont want to read the whole question in detail ;)! I bought J4 with kit 10-30mm PD lens couple of weeks ago, looking into buying 18.5mm f/1.8 as well, the question is, what could I do with kit PD lens that I couldnt with 18.5mm? Is there anything besides extra magnification and VR on kit lens that could make it better than 18.5mm in certain scenarios(video quality is also important, wouldnt lack of VR be real bummer?)? Interested in having fast prime lens for added...
Hi folks, I'll try to make this brief. I take landscape and abstract pix while hiking. I compile a calendar of these pix using iPhoto and send them to my family every January. I currently have a non-functional Canon T2i, and one lonely very beat up 12-24 Tokina. I have been wanting to 'upgrade' to FF for some time and am going to make the jump in the next month or so. The 750 looks like the right camera to me - however with the 610 at $700 less, I'm going to have a hard time not buying...
Hi, I might be interested in this mic, but it's about 2,9 cm long and I'm afraid it's too big for my V1. Any experiences in how big a mic can be without showing up in the video? Thanks. Sem Oh, and let me share a picture :-) I joined this team (Team All4Friends) in a Roparun challange. A run from Paris to Rotterdam. I took this and other shots in the little spare time I had. PP in Lightroom only. Roparun is a charity organisation and raises money for the fight against cancer. Every single...

I've just update firmware 1.0 - 1.1 on my nikon 1 v2 and then I noticed on nikon website that I should update lens firmware with nikon v2. Also recently, I found some yellow stripes appearing on photos when I use 18.5mm and 10-100mm lens. I still wonder if those issue are caused by updating firmware or by something else. I called nikon support today, they just told me to reset the camera and see if it work.
I have an issue with my 18.5mm f1.8. The following sample photo shows a very visible aberration around the white part of the orchid that I refer to as ghosting. The shot was taken with a V1 at f2.0 aperture and 1/125 shutter. The ghosting will usually be eliminated by f2.5. This was taken before I had the proper hood for this lens but the same behavior occurs with the hood. The ghosting is visible in either viewfinder although I did not notice it when I took this shot. It is very...
So I've been doing photography for a few months now with the Nikon V1 with the kit lens and now I'm ready to move on to the next level. I know I'm going to get the 18.5mm lens. Now I'm wondering if I should also get the SB-N7 flash or another lens. I do like the wideness of the 10mm or I could get a c mount lens. I was also thinking of getting a manual film slr to improve my metering skills. Before I make my decision I wanted to ask a few questions. What are the benefits of a flash? Can a...
Hi All, I've just received my 18.5 and note that there is no serial number plate/sticker on the lens itself? Although the box's has the serial number and matches the Nikon Warranty card, where is the S/N on the lens? Has anybody noticed this? --Thanks,Daisy AU - Brisbanehttp://www.flickr.com/photos/ney_images/
I recently started my own business, a mixed martial arts fighting blog. I have some experience shooting these types of events using a Canon Rebel EOS T3i at my last job, but I still consider myself a digital photography n00b. I was leaning toward buying a Nikon D7100 with a fixed 50 mm lens, either a 1.4 or a 1.8 (I'm funding this startup with my bartending paychecks so budget is a factor). But the more I read about the 1 system V2, the more it looks like an attractive option on paper. The 18...
Hi, I'm new here..Been reading lots of positive comments on this lens, so I wanted it real bad..Last week went to Kuala Lumpur to search for it, but it wasn't available anywhere. Though they got one on display at Nikon service centreIt's been announced in my country, but it just isn't available yet for some reason. Does anyone knows if Nikon is having supply shortage problem at the moment?Should I wait till it's officially available in my country or order one from somewhere (Hong Kong,...
