Summary: Description is very misleading. Says the item is new and when it came it was the lens only in a "new white box". No hood as described, no warranty, no instructions and no original packaging. Very very poor.
Excerpt: 1. This is good lens; typical Nikon; not bad, defective, or anything like that. Takes decent snapshots. Turns your Nikon 1 into a point-and-shoot.2. But... the 1.8 lens is just a couple of bucks more; and it's fantastic; superior; amazing; out of the ordinary. So, I can't recommend a good lens when you could spend just a few bucks more and get a great lens.3.
Good indoor and everyday lens. I find I leave this lens on my camera a lot of the time and use it a ton.

Summary: I got this lens for my Nikon J3. I was looking for a versatile lens that would allow for getting some better photos indoors. The two lenses that came with the J3 are good, but they seemed to be struggling inside. This 10mm lens is great and is exactly what I was looking for. It lets a lot of light in and allows me to take good pictures inside. If I'm outside this lens still works and I find that I leave it on my camera most of the time.
Summary: muy buen producto y buen vendedor a peru llego en 10 dias y funciona a la perfeccion solo un problema, me hubiera gustado que llegue con la caja original del producto pero no importa al final solo lo usare yo y no la vendere pero si la quisiera vender creo que no me aceptarian el producto sin su caja pero de todas maneras muchas gracias tambien me sorprendio el tiempo de envio que llego muy rapido casi siempre demora todos los productos entre 15 y 30 dias pero en este...
It has changed the way I take photos inside my custom models.

Summary: I was not impressed with the flash shadow of the 10-30 mm zoom lens that came with the camera. It stuck out too far to fit in confined spaces besides leaving the shadow in close up work. This fixed focus lens fits in smaller places, leaves no shadow and is a sharper lens with a larger f stop of 2.8 compared to the 3.5 of the standard lens. It seems to focus better in low light situations and is rapidly becoming my standard lens for my Nikon 1 J3 camera.
Excerpt: Really more 3.5 stars. Comparing it to the 10-30mm 3.5-5.6; this f/2.8 is about 2/3 of a full stop wider. Unfortunately it's also pretty tight mounting onto the camera. It eventually loosens up, but it also drops little metal shavings on the inside of the mount of the camera as you repeatedly mount and unmount it. Would need to wipe the inside edge of the camera mount, don't use a blower, who knows where those little things are getting blown to.
