I take closeup pictures of insects and such. The numbers make the J1/V1 look like a good way to get closer-ups using the adapter and an F mount macro lens. The pixels are about half as wide as my DSLR's. Twice the resolution. Maybe.

What looks good by doing math may not look good when the images come out. A lens may not have enough resolution, or the small pixels of the 1 may not be good enough to outresolve the larger pixels of a DSLR.

Has anybody tried near 1:1 macros using the adapter? How good are the results?

Lack of off camera flash will also be a problem. Can you get decent illumination of macro subjects?
