Long overdue! Another addition to the lineup of 1 system lenses... 18.5mm f/1.8 which is effectively a 50mm 1.8 lens.

But of course... Make the sensor 2 mm in size and the lens, all of a sudden, becomes 200mm/1.8

Not a bad price if it can focus fast. My $105 nifty 50 is a 135mm f/1.8 on my V1.

Can I divide the price of the FT1 by 7 since I use it with 7 f-mount lenses? :-)

$255 50 1.8 equivalent lens without stabilization.. a bit much.

another new lens without optical stabilization, I wounder if they are going to release a body with built-in stabilization (to reduce overall system size?).

I've never found a need for stabilization in my own shooting. None of my lenses have VR, not something really on my radar. None of my film cameras had built in VR...I guess ignorance is bliss eh?

For the 10mm lack of stabalization is not an issue. And I suspect that it will be similar for the 18.5mm

Once you get into the 35mm and beyond range its nice to have.

It's only an f/4 (actually closer to f/4.8) as far as depth of field, not light capturing abilities.

It's good to see Nik is not giving up on the N1 line. Just sold my V1 at a relatively large loss.

I kept my FT1 & 10mm, for a V2. A V2 I will inspect a lot more closely if I buy

The VR is less necessary after SS500 and can be an obstruction shooting bursts; altho' not as bad as picture review can be in the V1

that is also relative. I was not really that excited to see low light performance from that chip. would definitely rate it two or more stops under D700, let alone D3s or D800

Too many people are worried about the wide end. The 1" chip gives you a 2.7 crop factor. I put my V1 on the back of my 300 2.8 VR with the 1.7 TC and I'm at a 1377mm FOV.

The Del Monte Center is 1.15 miles from my shooting location.

Too many people care about long end imo.

sure it does have some benefits, but no doubt nikon failed in that one. They could create such specialty camera first when we have full frame rangefinder in our hands.

personally i cannot find any use for anything beyond 105mm except peeking in other's windows

^color me wowed, gman

I could see removing the D4/D800 off of the exotic tele just to grab some extra shots with ridiculous reach on the V1- that's some impressive quality, and it's not like it adds any weight or size to the kit now does it?

Does something like this require perfect long lens technique and a rock of gibraltar tripod?
