#5. "RE: So what do you love about the Nikon 1?"

I realize this post is a week or so old, but I have a couple of questions/concerns. As a sports shooter, I've been lugging around a D3 and a D7000, and now I'm contemplating the V1 as a lighter-weight option.

  • Your point about silent golf shooting is well taken. It might be worth having just for that alone!

  • I'm wondering about the usefulness of the superzoom option you mentioned for sports use. As I understand it (please correct me if I'm wrong!), when using the FT1 adapter only AF-S autofocus is enabled. That seems pretty limiting for sports use, although there are surely some shots you could get of unmoving subjects.

  • You mentioned using it for swimming and diving. In the high-school venues in which I shoot, a D3 and f/2.8 lens struggle to get stop-action shots at sensible ISOs. I wonder if the slower CX lenses and lesser ISO performance would really work for that application?

Any thoughts you have on these issues would be most welcome!
