Summary: It's fast to focus, and I liked the quality of pictures taken in low light, but I purchased it specifically for a vacation and it was both HEAVY and BULKY. I used a replacement cross-body strap to take some of the strain off my neck, but it's an odd shape and bounced uncomfortably on my hip and was...
Summary: I'm thinking of buying *another* V1 to have forever for when my current one eventually dies. The way the V2 is, it doesn't look good for the V3, so the V1 may indeed be "the last camera" I'll ever want.
Summary: For the travel photographer this is a good choice..with the caution that enlargements about 9X12 will look a bit 'thin' and grainy. While I love the new focus speed and feature for looping a group of frames in slow motion in order to select the perfect moment..
Summary: To start with I do own the V1 and all the Nikon 1 lenses except for the 10-100 PD zoom. I just borrowed my friends V2 for the weekend and did some comparisons between the two to see if it would be worth upgrading to the new V2. These are only my initial impressions and only for still photography.
Summary: It retains most of what was solid about the V1. It has added to it's pixel count, but base ISO is also boosted, so new real improvement in that department and for my shooting, that was it's biggest weakness.
Summary: kommt aber an eine Bildqualität von einer Spiegelreflexkamera leider nicht ran und mit diesem Objektiv schon garnicht. Viel Spielerei, aber geniale Geschwindigkeit; auch von 14 MP merkt man nicht viel. Dachten wir können an Gewicht sparen bleiben aber doch bei unserer Spiegelreflexkamera.
