Summary: I ordered this 32mm portrait lens to help document our time recording an album in-studio, and it does not disappoint. Photos were shot with it attached to a J5, and we couldn't be happier. The pics are sharp and warm with plenty of "bokeh".
Summary: This has been called the best single Nikon 1 lens by a voice I trust, so I eventually bought it, even though I wasn't sure I'd use it much. As it turns out, I'm using it a LOT. Its wide F1.2 aperture allows me to use it on many occasions simply too dark for the standard kit lens, or even the also...
Summary: Read the other reviews to find out how good this lens is when it is new and working. After 18 months of light hobbyist use the diaphragm got stuck -- closed (doh!). The repair desk on Wilshire in Los Angeles was nice enough to take it and send it to United Camera, who called me the next day and said...
Summary: The new lens is fantastic. However the diaphragm broke after 18 months and the aperture is stuck closed. I foolishly bought this from a so called "gray market" retailer for a measly $150.00 savings, so a replacement of the A Unit will cost me $270.
Excerpt: This is one of the lens that every Nikon 1 shooter should have in their bag. This lens is the shrunk down version of Nikon's 85mm 1.4. The good: Sharp with enough resolution to show off your 18mp Nikon 1 sensor in all its glory.
Summary: This is the only f/1.2 auto focus lens in Nikon's entire inventory. This lens has a 35mm format equivalent of 86.4mm and works wonders as a portrait lens. This lens has resolution that compares to Nikons best FX lenses.
Excerpt: While the crop factor on the 1" sensor increase depth of field compared to similar effective focal lengths on larger sensors, this lens provides great shallow depth of field. I like having the longer reach for portraits since I don't like being in the face of subjects, especially unsuspecting ones.
Summary: This has got to be the best lens in the Nikon 1 lineup. Not only is it fast, but the quality is very good. Bokeh is fantastic for headshots. I know I will be using this for headshots and close portraits so it's perfect. This definitely does the job for me and a very exciting lens to use.
Excerpt: This is a pro level lens for the 1 series. Built better than most of Nikon's full frame AFS lenses with solid metal body and super smooth manual focus ring.
This is the best lens in the Nikon 1 mount. Super sharp, fast focus, nice bokeh
