Nikon 1 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6 Nikkor VR review by cvizler

  • Summary: Yes, its seemed to be a decent lens. No distorsion, no corner shading, no evident optical weaknesses. Acceptable build quality. Still, you do not even know what your camera (in my case, Nikon 1 V1) is capable until you try it with a better lens (in my case, a 6.5-13mm). It is good, but not great.
  • Pros: Decent optical quality, acceptable build quality
  • Cons: Unlinke some reviews suggest, it still limits the performance of the sensor

  • Summary: I needed to replace my original lens and was a bit skeptical because the price on this item was so reasonable. This lens is working perfectly with my Nikon camera and I am very pleased with my purchase.

Decent kit lens

  • Summary: This is a very useful lens....and pretty decent quality for a kit lens. Sharpness is quite good in the centre and 'ok' on the edges. Fast focus and a capable little performer.

Nikon 1 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6 Nikkor VR review by moose

  • Summary: I have two of these lenses. Both black. They were bought with my Nikon Red J1 and Black J2. Both lenses are ultra-sharp and so accurate and tactile to use. Sheer perfection. The zoom ring is perfectly sized. The black version of this lens is the best buy as it looks great with all of the Nikon 1 body colours.
  • Pros: ultra-sharp and beautifully designed
  • Cons: none

Average Kit Lens

  • Summary: I like the size and feature of this lens. It's small and it even has VR. It has great zoom range going from full frame equivalent 27mm - 81mm range. As for image quality, it take decent pictures. I only use this lens when I need wide angle and out doors on a bright day. I now have 18.5mm f/1.8 lens which I love. If it did not come in a kit, I would have got the 10mm f/2.8 instead and 18.5mm f/1.8 plus 30-110mm vr zoom.

  • Pros: must have range, VR capability, very good optics
  • Cons: could have been smaller

Lens errors after 3 weeks of use

NorCalNikonFan, Nikon
28 September 2012
  • Summary: Overall I like the Nikon 1 J1 system and have captured some great images on tour in Europe. However, after only 3 weeks of use the 10-30mm lens has developed a consistent "lens error" issue when the system is turned on by unlocking the lens, or if the camera is switched on with the lens already extended but with the zoom ring anywhere between 10mm and 14mm. The compact design seems great but it's just not rugged enough, apparently.

Second hand lens in very good condition.

5 July 2012
  • Summary: Why not 5 star? Well, the original lens is exactly the same and it failed for no apparent reason. I took it apart as far as possible, but no luck finding out what went wrong. Luckily this "new" second hand works fine. I also noticed that a brand new lens comes at the same price as a complete camera (old model J1, still new in the box). Weird.
