Summary: This camera is better than my iPhone, much smaller than my Canon DLSR, and easy to carry - unobtrusive. That said, the quality of the pictures does not compare well to my Canon with top of the line lenses. Hard to get much of a bokeh with this camera no matter what lens you put on it. Also does not always focus properly so I usually wind up with some pictures that at not in proper focus. Still a great walk-around camera for its purpose.
Summary: I love my new camera Nikon. This package with the two lenses, the filters, the legs, control remote and other accessories is such a great deal. Service and shipping was very fast. Package came before expected day. Thank you very much.
Summary: I bought it ! This is a great Camera. Try it and remember Buy more Battery to extra energy http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009WZS3QW/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B009WZS3QW&linkCode=as2&tag=best-refer-20 The camera is fairly feature full and indicates that Nikon is dead serious in pursuing the MILC portion of the market.
Summary: This camera marks my return to being a somewhat serious amateur shutter bug. I'm 63. Previous serious cameras have included a Nikon Ftn, F2s, Nikonos, and a Nikon FA which I still have. I have lost track of the many utilitarian digital snap shooter cameras that I've had over the past couple decades. Back in the day (mostly the 70's and early 80's) I had a few nice shots that were published or otherwise won awards, and even made a few bucks selling prints.
Summary: This is a great camera! Shoots well in all situations including low light. The viewfinder takes a little getting used to but I have gone from a d80 to the 1 v2 and with it being so small, it is simply hard to beat! I look forward to purchasing the FT-1 mount and trying out some different lenses.
Excerpt: This camera and the lenses designed for it blew me away. <br />It has outstanding resolution with superb detail. I had several professional cameras before (Both Canon and Nikon with Pro lenses) but I am getting more detailed 13x19 and 17x24 prints from this camera than I ever did from my pro cameras and lenses.
Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Great Resolution, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
Otherwise this is a superb camera, that I highly recommend.

Summary: The reason I bought this model camera was primarily to use it with the FT-adapter and a fast tele. I happen to own a Sigma 300 f 2.8. ( 810mm f 2.8 would be a combo, that money can´t buy!) BUT to my dissatisfaction I noticed that Nikon managed to introduce a BUG! in the V2 that wasn´t there in the V1 ,that has made the use of the above lens impossible! Surprise surprise! I would be grateful for any suggestions, how to overcome this.
Summary: I own or have owned Canon D30 - 50 & 7 as well as Nikon D7000, and have tried the Panasonic GX1 compact. The Nikon V2 is finally a compact camera the can keep up with the DSLR. Focus is fast and accurate. Continous shooting is also fast and many of the frame settings are individually metered producing fantastic shots. Low light is some of the best Ive seen. Build & Feel are strong and hefty, but still give the light tuck away concept.
