Nikon 1 Nikkor VR 6.7-13mm f/3.5-5.6

Wideangle zoom lens | Nikon 1 | 3329, 3330

I'm writing this review after I sold mine. Great lens. Optically astounding: sharp and low distortion, low vignetting. VR is a gamechanger in terms of what you can do with this lens vs. the Nikon 1 10mm F2.8. It's small and light, and gives the Nikon 1 range a compact, high-performance 18-35mm ultrawide it certainly deserves. If you want 18mm on a compact camera, now that the DL's are DeLeted, this is pretty much the only game in town. The basic problem I have with this lens is the durability ...

First-rate 18-35 eq. wide angle zoom from Nikon. Small, light, smooth action, close focus, and fast to focus. VR is just icing on the top. Performance is really top notch. Sharp, extremely good contrast and flare resistance (rather attractive light circles), almost no chromatic aberration, and good distortion control. No obvious loss of sharpness or contrast when using the lens wide open. No obvious loss of performance in the corners. Mmmm .. no. No downsides to this lens at all.

This is now my #1 lens for the N1 system. It is built solid with very little distortion! Very sharp!! This lens is worth every cent. Only reason not five stars is variable aperture (I sooo dislike variable aperture). This is a must own lens!
