"If you’re a Nikon 1 owner (whether the J1, J2, or V1, V2) this lens is a no-brainer, just buy it. For $186.95 it’s well worth it. It finally gives Nikon 1 owners a fast option for low light. Although I think files out of the V1 are very pleasing up to and including ISO 800, and sometimes even ISO 1600 if exposed correctly, this will give users an option to shoot at much lower ISOs in a given lighting situation, and as you can easily see from the sample photos, some fairly nice bokeh.
If you are not currently a Nikon 1 owner, maybe this lens and the currently ridiculously low price of the wonderful V1 will . . . read more
"The Nikon 11-27.5mm is a light and very compact lens with a versatile zoom range. In terms of image quality, it does not remain behind on an SLR lens. The lens delivers sharp images at all apertures from center to the outer corners, while lenses for an SLR are usually less sharp in the corners than in the center at full aperture. Compared to the Nikon 10-30 mm , the Nikkor 11-27.5mm lens is 1 cm or 33% shorter than the Nikon 10-30 mm lens. In our Nikkor 11-27.5 review, this lens draws slightly sharper than the Nikon 10-30 mm on a Nikon J2, which we have tested on a Nikon J1. Nevertheless, with the naked eye, you will not detect differences in quality between the two lenses. . . . read more
"The Nikon 30-110mm ƒ/3.8-5.6 VR is a small zoom lens, mating very nicely with our J1 test body and providing a stable, if small and light, shooting platform. The lens is available in five colors: red, white, silver, black and pink. Our sample was the fashionable glossy white version. The only control on this lens is the retractable lens lock switch; pressing this button and turning the zoom ring extends the lens for use, as well as turning on the camera. . . . read more
"The Nikon 10-30mm ƒ/3.5-5.6 produced some excellent results for sharpness, slightly more at the wider end of its focal range than at telephoto. At 10mm and ƒ/3.5, images produced are very sharp indeed, and there's only a marginal gain by stopping down to ƒ/4: stopping down to ƒ/5.6, images produced are sharp from corner to corner. Stopping down further introduces diffraction limiting, but the results aren't really apparent until ƒ/16, where there is some very light softness across the frame. . . . read more
