I went to Cades Cove yesterday and thought I'd try the V1 out for some water landscape. Some thoughts... the image quality isn't the same as with my D700 and 24-70. It's noticeably less. However, it is still quite good and better I think than the first time I tried to shoot it with a D50 and 18-55 and 18-200. Being able to switch to video proved handy for some things and the slo-mo was really cool in a few areas.

I miss having some of the discrete controls the D700 has but the portability was nice. Saw several bears and shot those, too, but the combo was a little slow for what I needed. The more I shoot with the V1 the more I'm realizing it's not a substitute for my big DSLRs but it's perfect for the light trips and times when I go somewhere where I don't expect/need to get big time shots. And a great backup camera.

So when I visit a friend/relative or doing something with other people I think the V1 is the perfect camera. When I'm looking for quality, speed, and have the time to do it then the V1 isn't the perfect camera for me.
