View Full Version : Nikon 1 lenses
Any rumors of new lenses for the Nikon 1 series?
I have been experimenting with C-Mount and Super 16mm lenses on the 1 system, and have found it to be pretty interesting. You can get some fantastically fast glass - Fujinon makes a f/0.85 for example - that will give you a really blurred background and fast speeds. These lenses, however cool they are on paper, simply are not photographic tools on caliber with say, a Nikkor 50mm f/1.4, sadly. The bokeh, for one, is a bit - well - swirly.
That being said, I am waiting with great anticipation for my 9mm f/1.4 to come in, maybe I'll just call it a 24mm psudolux.
How is manual focus with the EVF on the Nikon V1?
its quite alright,...
i've been using a dumb m42 adapter and pentax asahi tamukar lenses,... feels just like shooting an old school camera. its actually one of my favorite things about it,... very few buttons to get in the way, focus view the evf or the lcd on the back, both of which have nice resolution,... set your iso, like you do with film, head out, set aperture on lens, one button for the shutter speed and thats it.
its worth heading to your local electronics store to have a play around with.
That sounds intriguing.
So the answer to the original question is: No ??
