Hello all, I've been using the J2 with the lens it came with (11-27.5) for the last 3 years as I have travelled around China. The time has finally come where a new lens is calling. Much of my money goes on travelling so I can't be spending big bucks. I've been obessessing over the ultrawide zoom recently. My question is - I can pick up the 10mm pancake lens for 280 GBP less than the UWA lens, is the extra 20 or so degrees of view/better quality of the 6.7-13mm (so I've read) worth the extra...
Not sure if this is a setting thing or a minor fault on my V1. Collapsing the lens on my J2 powers off the camera, but it doesn't with my V1. I can't find anything in the menus relating to this, so am I missing something, or is this a minor fault with my V1 body? --How the heck did I end up with this username? :-)

Hi all, my first post in this forum, as I'm a newb to the 1 series. I reached the limits of my patience trying to get some wildlife shots with my Pentax Q and an old Tokina 135 f/2.8 manual focus lens. So I just picked up a bargain CX 70-300 non-zoom (it's stuck at 300mm) off ebay plus a J2 body to mount to the end of it. AF and VR are working fine. First tests today in awful light were pretty encouraging. I'm thinking of getting a Swivi S1 loupe and making a shoulder mount with IR shutter...
For people who own a J5, do you find its screen is better or worse than other N1 cameras? The J5 I've used seems to be worse. The motion it displays is stuttery compared to the J2 and V1. Except, oddly, in movie and motion snapshot modes. I've tried to confirm if this is a problem with all J5s or just the one I've used, but I couldn't find any 60fps youtube videos that show the J5 in use. One of the reasons I am a fan of Nikon 1, and did not stick with a competing mirrorless system, was the...
Someone gave a friend this camera, could not use it, the battery overheating. A known problem? We set it to charging, but did not work. Should there be a charging light? He could buy a new battery (but we do not know if the camera is ok). What should a battery cost? This is in Norway. One shop has a replacment battery - did not give me any name - for under $30, original seems to be from $40 to 80. I do not know this camera so any help would be great.
Hi I've seen a J2 and 10-30mm kit lens for a crazy steal of a price of £85 in a local shop. It's used but comes with 2 year repair warranty and will be just as a carry everywhere snapshot camera. In the review of the J1 I read about the poor auto ISO behaviour where it chooses a stop compensation in ISO an one in tandem with s/speed, often meaning it would not up the ISO enough to provide a quick enough s/speed in dim light. You could not in 2012 set a minimal shutter speed for auto ISO like...

I'd like to get a real wide angle lens for my J2, but I can't afford any. So I've been looking on "the bay" and researching through old threads here to get an idea of what to get. Here's my understanding right now: I need a wide angle converter which will fit on the kit lens' 40.5mm filter thread. I can use a step-up or step-down converter if the wide converter lens filter is of a different size. I shouldn't get one that's too big or heavy, as it might damage the Nikkor's plastic zoom...
Hi all anyone used the seemingly now fashionable LED clustered lighting for video work? I bought a J2 last year for the fast AF in video (it's certainly impressive) I found it struggled in low light to focus either for stills or video. I'm looking at a supplementary light: a) so the AF can find something to focus on b) to make the ISO (a lot?) lower anyone have any experience in use, hardware and amount of LEDS in the unit, and battery life. I know, I know.. I'm not asking a lot.....
