I tried my 70-300VR with the FT-1 adapter on my V1. I was astonished at how well this lens performs on the V1. Even at f5.6 and 300mm the images were very good. The 70-300 is one of my favorite lenses on my DX cameras, but I am pleased with it on my V1. There is a down side however, in dim light at 300mm where the lens is at f5.6, the V1 hunts and will not come to focus. At shorter focal lengths it will focus in low light. Also, since the camera is only using the center focus point, tracking anything is out of the question if the object moves off center. Anyone else give this combo a try?
