Summary: Got the item within a week or so. But it was poorly packaged, that is, it was loosely put in a box that rattled when I got it and the package didn't have any invoice or return policy contained within. Had no warranty papers. Other than that, the item works well so far.
Good camera with a few not so obvious compromises...

Summary: Silent mode turns off physical shutter (should be a separate mode) Grip is so much nice after switching from the J3 Good camera for those concerned about weight on outdoor trips Too many frilly pointless functions in my opinion.
Excerpt: The combination of this fast little devil, the FT1 adapter and the Nikon 70-300 f/4.5-5.6 VR, set me back around 1500 dollars and I think it's great to get this focal length (810 mm), autofocus, image stabilizer, speed (4.5 5.6), EVF (1440K pixels), weigth (aprox 1200 grams, all included) and these...
Summary: I have a Nikon D 3 which takes magnificent pictures with the right glass. But It is heavy and bulky and when traveling for pleasure, I tend to leave it behind. I have always been on the lookout for a small pocket camera that takes reasonably good pictures and has a viewfinder.
Excerpt: Much smaller than I had expected. Smaller than my V1, takes the same lenses. The control layout is quite different, I am happy that they moved the PASM dial to the top as I used to constantly hit the control when it was on the back of the camera.
Summary: My main intent with buying the Nikon 1 V2 is to use this camera to get an increased equivalent field of view and use it for nature and bird photography when my regular gear just doesnu2019t have the reach. My main set up is the Nikon 1 V2 with FT-1 adapter..
Summary: I bought this the v2 for my wife since she likes a small camera form factor. It also serves as a backup for my D800. Up to now we are delighted with the V2's performance.Its stills are excellent for up to 8x 10's. Among its strengths is how darned fast it is, it focuses instantly and well.
