I bought a Nikon J1 a few months ago, mainly cos I was dissatisfied with the pictures I was taking of my two children from previous P&S (Fuji fd100 or something like that)
Luckily, I bought the J1 from this forum, so was at a discount to the RRP, $200+ saving!
I say luckily, because after about a week, I was about to throw it into Bedok Reservoir!!!
I was still unsatisfied with the pics, my kids faces were still blurry, even in Shutter Priority mode, there was no bokeh unless I shoved the camera right up to their faces (I was using the stock lens provided by Nikon 10-30mm f3.5-5.6) and generally, it wasn't a hell of a lot better than my P&S.
Then last week, I bought the FT1 mount adapter and the Nikkor 50mm 1.8g lens...BOOM!!!
This combo actually cost more than the camera itself, but boy was it worth it!
I'm getting bokeh out the ying-yang, on shutter priority mode, I can take clear pictures of my kids even if they're doing cartwheels!
I'm in love with the camera and photography again...all this time, I thought photography was a skill...in reality, it's just how much money you can spend on the correct lens! LOL!
I'll probably get flamed for that last sentence...but wadever!
MY PHOTOS LOOK GREAT! BOOM BOOM BOOM!
