    Boss, can the camera still AF when using the F-mount lens?

    I think can (although I don't have the cameras) but I read some reviews from the net saying that it support autofocus for AF-S and AF-I Nikkor lens.

    Nikon has also announced a lens adapter, which will allow 1-series cameras to be used with Nikon F-mount lenses though autofocus will only available with AF-S and AF-I Nikkor lenses.
    I am not a photographer, just someone who happened to have a couple of cameras.

    according to Nikon's marketing material, yes it will AF. But how well, no one knows.

    Hi Ortega
    Do you have the opportunity to test other lenses as well?
    Particularly the 10-100 and 30-110?

    to keep the size small the 10-30mm lens will collapse when not in use

    Nice to see that the mic input is built into the body rather than an add on accessory.

    One question, do you have any control over exposure or aperture during video mode?

    Would like to request some video of the camera and the EVF too. Thanks!

    darker area crop at ISO 800 is impressive. at 1600, it's certainly still better than a compact with larger sensor (e.g. s95). very tempting - especially since the 10/2.8 lens is so sexy and the thought of AF with the adaptor with some of my AF nikkors. even a 70-300 can be turned into a birding monster... :P

    anyway, this is taken from dpreview to help those wondering the main differences between V1 and J1:

    - V1 has a built-in high resolution electronic viewfinder
    - J1 has built-in pop-up flash, while V1 has an accessory port in place of the pop-up flash, initially compatible with a tiny slide-on flash unit and GPS device, but with more accessories proposed to follow.
    - V1 has higher resolution LCD (921,000 dots, rather than the 460,000 on the J1)
    - J1 has only an electronic shutter, whereas the V1 has a mechanical shutter too. In principle this should afford better image quality to the V1 under certain conditions. It also helps the V1 achieve a flash sync speed of 1/250th seconds, rather than the J1's 1/60th limit.
    - Cameras have slightly different control layouts (flash mode button on J1 replaces focus mode button on V1)
    - Body materials are different - V1 is an aluminium/magnesium alloy, J1 is a simpler aluminium alloy

    I think that that is exactly their target market, just above the large sensor p&s yet image quality still can fight with the m4/3. Not meant to be on the same level as dx sensor cameras. Will be curious to know the selling price at the shops. Btw I just shot some flower macros with the 10-30mm, will post later.
