This is not a review of the Nikon 1 cameras or lenses. This is my general experience using these cameras, primarily for street photography. Lastly, I do not label myself as a street photographer. I am just a photographer who happens to like street photography.

*** The Nikon 1 (CX Mount) lenses have a 2.7x crop. Keep this in mind when looking at the exif data of the following photographs. ***

NIKON V2 : 30mm f/5.6 1/640s ISO 400

When the J1 and V1 were released, many complained about the sensor size being too small. However, it seemed that most of the negative reviews came from people who did not own or had not used the cameras at all. Everyone who did own or had used them, seemed to love the system. Fortunately, I bought the V1 a couple years after its release which enabled me to enjoy a more mature system with some improvements and wider selection of lenses. At the moment, I own the V1, V2 and V3 cameras along with 5 lenses and the SB-N5 flash.
