A genuinely COMPACT compact!

About Me Professional
Comments about Nikon 1 V2 Black Digital Camera with 10-30mm Lens:
I recently switched from a Panasonic M4/3 system to Nikon 1 for my holiday snapshooter and am really pleased with it. Sure there are image quality compromises with the smaller sensor but these are more than outweighed by the size benefits which make this a genuinely compact system... If I want ultimate image quality I'll pick up my FX cameras anyway which makes the 1 system an ideal partner to sit alongside them.Compared to my previous Panasonic G3, the V2 feels vastly superior in terms of build quality. Lovely positive controls and well thought out ergonomics... The Panny felt like a badly designed toy compared to this! I never managed to get to grips with the complicated menu system on the Panasonic but the Nikon is easy and intuitive to navigate. Now the Nikon 1 series is starting to mature with a decent range of lenses and accessories it is becoming a great little system. Be realistic about the limitations of a 1" sensor and you won't be disappointed.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great price for a great little camera
About Me Casual user, Hobbyist/Enthusiast
Having owned a D80 for a good number of years I was left with a finacial dilemma, upgrade to full frame or try this new fangled mirror-less lark! im glad i chose the latter, as the V2 is so small and light, you can fit in your pocket, its literally a take anywhere camera with all the functions of an SLR, a great range of lenses at reasonable prices too, i bought the Ft1 adapter and with my 300mm f4 attached i get a fast 820mm lens at no extra cost, bargain!
