The V1

Added on by John Sturr.

After a few weeks - the "1" is becoming a very good above the fold, performance piece of equipment.  It is small, cheap, and the color rendering is all Nikon.  It impresses while at the same time being in the shadows.

The two plusses are nailing focus - and color rendering.  The biggest minus is resolution on the sensor.  This is like a mini D3s - sans $3200.  Monochrome, as with the P330 is epic ! 

I just acquired the 18.5mm f1.8 - and I was going to wait on this -- but every thing I read played this up really well -- and for good reason.  This thing is crazy sharp -- crazy !
