    When checked (needed to borrow a loan set for company field tests) was also told that Nikon SG is not exactly sure how the adaptor will work - while it is not a teleconverter, probably would have some light falloff. When queried further, it was beyond my technical ability to understand (macro lens increase in aperture size when coming closer to 1:1 distance, was told it follows roughly the same principle - this part I don't understand).

    Also another concern was the current needed to drive traditional AF lens - unknown at this point in time. Personally, I suspect shorter battery life. With AF-S, maybe not an issue.

    One last point was VR - about 1 stop efficiency reduction for VR.

    A sneak peek of what is to come.... Looks like the Nikon 1 system is very interesting in terms of expandability...



    Other prototypes presented includes, touch controlled LCD panel, projector, mini LED, Joystick, Network adapter. And I am pretty sure there are some other surprises on the way, especially after talking to some of the folks at the launch.

    By the way, did you happen to test the low light performance?

    Looking to get the pink one for my g/f but she usually takes pictures at night.

    quite disappointing, tested the V1 alongside with friends gf2 and ep3.... the focusing speed is not any faster than those 2 and even more disappointing..it not as steadfast in achieving focus as the gf2 and ep3

    If Nikon will buy or build a Lytro lens for this series it will be the new Wonder of the world.

    Not the lens... the sensor. Also, you will be down to 496x496 pixels.

    Even if Nikon builds the first, other companies will soon follow...
