Yeah I know this camera produces great photos with the high end glass but what about on it's own merits with just the 30-110mm VR f3.5-f5.6 lens. Can it produce good shots. I'm getting pretty soft results and poor focus at times. Maybe it's about the glass. I was hoping to get a thread going to where those of us who don't want to lug around the big lenses share some tips for the V1.

Other than small and light what does this have over the D40, which is also small and light and fast to focus.

Is this better than say a P7700. After the initial thrill is the V1 going to become a classic? I'm glad I got in on the really wild give away prices.

I have been using Aperture priority and the highest ISO I can get away with.


Exposure Time: 1/400 sec
F-Number: f/5.6
Exposure Program: Aperture Priority
ISO Speed Rating: 3200

handheld

Shot RAW and processe3 in Aperture 3 to JPEG for Nikonians

Would Nikon Capture helped here?

I know a tripod and long lens technique would have helped a lot. But a small camera does not call for a big tripod. I use the FT1 on a Gitzo GT3531S and the 80-200mm f2.8 lens.
