I've just gotten a v1 and have been reading the posts about the FT-1 adaptor. I have several DX lenses which would certainly give a wider range to the v1...but my question is why? If the purpose of the camera is to have a smaller form-factor than a dslr and then you still have to carry a bag of large, heavier lenses, why not just stick with the dslr albeit a larger kit. Doesn't it defeat the purpose of the v1's grab-and-go appeal? Help me out here, guys and gals...what am I missing? I've only had the v1 a few days and am really trying to like it but it seems like the pricey adaptors, underpowered flash, slow lenses, etcetera make this a camera that fills a niche that doesn't exist. I'm not trying to be v1 negative but I feel I must be overlooking something "special" and I would love to make this my 2nd camera. Right now it sits in about the number "5" position of cameras I grab to shoot with. Thanks for you input.
