any knows whether is this adaptor out in singapore??...
My dealer said that stocks coming in tomorrow but in limited quantities. Price is $300+... could be close to $300 depending on your relationship with your dealer. Good time to buy the V1/J1 as a Christmas present for yourself or your love ones as you can get it together with the FT-1.;)

Shashinki price is RM699 ~ S$285 (exchange rate S$1 = RM2.45).
- ShaShinKi.com ~ Malaysia's First & Largest Online Camera Shop!
Seem like cheaper than Singapore.
Shashinki usually price their product higher than Malaysia's local camera shop.
which mean it may be cheaper to buy at Malaysia's camera shop, just my guessing.
really speechless to Singapore pricing......

FT-1 is in! Got mine and tested with both AFS 16-35 & 70-200 - it's great! Thot it will be odd to hold etc but it is better than I expected :) BTW, I got it at Funan @ my regular haunt... :thumbsup: Nikon 1 users - pls update firmware accordingly before using.

Hi,

Are you able to post some pictures with circular bokeh shapes (e.g. shallow DoF of some distant lights)? I am concern with the following FT-1 restriction.
"The tops and bottoms may be missing from circular bokeh shapes created at wide apertures using lenses with a maximun aperture of f/1.4 or f/1.2."
Thanks.

Bros/Sis',

As I will be traveling for the nxt 2 weeks, will not hv much chance to test DOF etc etc. However, have done some brief testing on focusing speed indoors - very fast on f2.8 and above, for f4.0 have a tendency to hunt but does recover quickly. VR works very well with both 16-35 and 70-200. Pictures are tack sharp. Apologies for not being able to post pics as I hv to leave for the airport in 1 hour. Overall, my quick assessment is good for it's price and quality produced on a CX sensor camera.

Hi

I went to Botanical Garden Heliconia Walk yesterday morning to look for Sunbirds and got some pictures with 300mm VR F/2.8; a big lens with a tiny body :), quite easy to handled on the Wimberley head.

As people have already pointed out: with FT-1; VR works, no AF-C, only center focusing point works, etc...

Regards,
Ken Ng
