After looking at the V1 for a little while almost every day while browsing around, I decided to pull the trigger and purchase one. I figured if I was going to get one, I might as well get the 3 lens kit, flash, and FT1. I was overly excited about what I had read about the V1 and the FT1 allowing me to connect my current Nikon lenses. So when it showed up, the first thing I did was charge the battery (duh) and then attach the FT1 and the 70-200mm VR2 f/2.8 lens and ran outside to grab a shot of the moon. Below is that shot.

So far, I am impressed with this little camera (little opposed to the D300). I really purchased this to take to the beach and on a Disney cruise to keep things light and not have to carry my D300 all day. Right now, I have tested it with the 70-200mm f/2.8 VR2 lens and my 105mm f/2.8 VR lens and both have full functionality. Hopefully this Sunday with the super moon, it will be clear enough I may try using the 70-200 with a 2.0 teleconverter and shoot for the moon. If that turns out well, I'll post a picture back on here.
