I think most of us who use the Nikon 1 series also use the FT1 adapter. In fact, it's probably the most compelling feature for some of us. So that got me thinking, what lens(es) do you find yourself using with the adapter frequently?

For me, I've found that I use the 70-300 VR a lot. It gives me a lot of apparent crop very conveniently in a light package. Something I can take into ballparks and get really nice shots.

I'm also finding that using my macro lens is giving me some interesting shots I wouldn't catch with my D800 without big crops.
