Summary: This lens gets great reviews on Amazon. I'm going to rain on that parade. I just don't get it. I love primes and that's why I bought this one but I'm not wowed at all. The big advantage is size, this is the smallest lens for the CX system. That said, this lens is still pretty big when compared to the similar focal length and faster Panasonic 14mm F2.5 for M4/3. Perhaps I could rave about this lens if the "kit" 10-30 wasn't sharp.
Summary: This is my take everywhere lens...image quality is great ...if you have enough light! The Nikon 1 takes amazing pictures if you have enough light...period. you can't push the iso on this camera due to the sensor size. Solution (Nikon please!) make a faster lens...how about an f1.2 ? This would be an amazing take everywhere combo and would allow the Nikon 1 to kick some serious booty!
This lens main advantage, but you may notice some shortcommings

Summary: The pancake lens minimises the working camera package for portability. However, it is annoying that inexplicably it is not provided with the special very low profile hood and cap despite the significant official price of the lens, when equivalent ones can be bought at a fair price for a few pounds including international postage! It also does not have the vibration reduction of the other lenses despite the VR symbol still being used in some websites.
Summary: Ich habe mir von diesem Objektiv versprochen schöne Innenaufnahmen bei nicht so guten Lichtverhältnissen zu machen. Allerdings ist dieses Vorhaben kläglich gescheitert. Leider ist das Objektiv nicht lichtstark genug oder vielleicht liegt es an der Kamera selbst. Für den Preis, der verlangt wird, sehe ich zu wenig Leistung. Schade.
