Better than the kit lens.

  • Excerpt: Although this lens covers about the same focal lengths as the kit lens, the difference in contrast and sharpness make it worth the investment. It lacks the vibration reduction of the kit lens, but at these relatively short focal lengths, VR is unnecessary. Light and quick focusing.

Good compact size

  • Excerpt: I got this lens to make my Nikon V1 into a pocket camera. The V1 with the original 10-30mm lens with VR was too big to fit into the cargo pockets of my pants, but the 11-27.5mm is compact enough to fit. The lens image quality is very good and for this focal range I don't really miss the VR. The V1 with the 11-27.5mm provides me with a quality pocket camera with many of the features of my DSLRs. Much better than the point and shoot I used to carry.
  • Pros: Compact, Lightweight

  • Summary: I am sure that this lens is a great tool and does what it is suppose to do. I like accessories for my camera so I can have choices. Of course I have just about all the available lenses for my Nikon 1 V1. When I purchased this lens, I only learned that this lens was no better than the Nikon 1 Nikkor 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6 VR that I have already pruchased. In fact the 10-30mm had the vibration reduction (VR) feature that made it better.

Nikon 1 11-27.5mm f/3.5-5.6 Nikkor review by Prime Minister

  • Summary: This Nikon 1 11-27.5mm lens performs better then I thought it would. I guess it's because of the new design with ED and aspherical glass elements. Zooming isn't very smooth but it isn't bad either. The lens feels a bit cheap. Maybe because it's so light and mostly made of plastic. It does have a metal mount though and it's not an expensive lens. It's very compact and about a centimeter shorter then the Nikon 1 VR 10-30mm lens.
  • Pros: Very small and lightweight, sharp and contrasty
  • Cons: Feels a bit cheap, some flare

Quite simply, "WOW!"

C. F. Leffen "OldArcher", Amazon

  • Summary: I have developed my latest camera gear into a professionally worthy system, and the Nikon 1 Nikkor 11-27.5mm f/3.5-5.5.6 (White) lens is a worthy addition. Clarity through it's range, it is superb for fast, close-in work. I have a Nikon 1 J1 and a Nikon 1 V2, and all of the Nikkor lenses that these camera bodies can handle.

Very small and very sharp

Ted, Nikon

  • Summary: Despite the fact that this lens has no VR, the images it creates on the the V1 and V2 look sharper than my old 10-30mm. It's also smaller and lighter. The difference in focal length compared to the 10-30 is small enough to be ignored.
