interesting gary, thanks. do you have one of these? i just got a v1 a few weeks ago, soley for telephoto work. ive used the 10-30, and a variety of manual focus legacy glass and ive been disappointed by the jpeg performance, esp at iso400 and above, even in good light. i'd be curious about your thoughts if you have one.

now my experience may somewhat be the result of difficulty focusing, but i dont think so. pixel peeping, which i unabashedly do, reveals a pretty muddled result. it may be a jpeg engine problem, so i'm starting to only shoot raw, and seem to be getting better results, but honestly have not been in a demanding enough situation yet to draw final conclusions.

the ability to turn a 135/2.8 to a 355/2.8 is a game changer, imo, but only if the results justify the systems use. jury's still out...

I don't have one of these. It is an interesting enough camera that I thought if I c something about it I would post here..

But I did pickup the Pentax q when te price bottom'd out on it for the same reason. My Leica 35f2 becomes a 195f2 on it. Results are not bad at all.

There are some guys over at serious compact forum that are doing some really nice work w/ it on adapted lenses.

theres a 'serious compact forum'? hadnt heard of it, but i'll check it out. the Q interested me, but for me personally, i cant shoot without a vf, esp telephoto. the v1 really has a lot to speak for it. the build quality is imo excellent, metal and sturdy. it shoots incredibly fast, like 10-30 fps, which is honestly amazing. if youre into AF, its the fastest ive used, rivals my old 5d.

but nikon intentionally, imo, screwed up its software. when using MF lenses the camera doesnt recognize a lens is on and theres no work around. so virtually none of the typical and useful software mechanisms work, like AE or focus magnification..very annoying, and just maliciously dumb, imo.

and my personal bad habit is that i want m y subject to look good at 100% magnification. thats why i got rid of my m4/3 gear and moved to the gxr. at 100% my gxr and x100 are excellent, rivaling if not surpassing my old 5d. the nikon, at least the jpeg engine, very muddled. as i said, i need to shoot raw, i need to further refine my technique to work better with the camera, i need to shoot different lenses, and i need to do all that in demanding situations before i come to final conclusions. hopefully the forum you suggested will help!
thanks
tony

Link to Nikon one... Sub forum.
http://www.seriouscompacts.com/f91/

As I think about it I cannot remember Nikon one specific adapted lens.. My bad. The comment was more toward the Pentax Q adapted lens work that got me to give the q a try.

This thread in specific.

Look at the zoo and insect macro shots for the adapted lens work.

It does beg the question, put out an APS-c mirror less ?. Compared to Nikon one, I think nex6 and xe1 both have right idea.

I'm not going to lie, I think it's one of the most unattractive cameras I've ever seen.

well, my my my...so is this total version 2 overhaul an admission that the first version sucked?

i can deal with ugly, into which category this certainly falls, if the IQ meets minimal criteria given the great telephoto tool this could be. imo, it is still way way overpriced. based on my experience with the v1, and assuming the IQ has been improved, and assuming the software allows for AE with non nikon adapted glass, i wouldnt pay more than half their present listed price.
