Hmmm, being the owner of a V3 and the $1000 cheap 70-300, and the $900 cheap 32mm I guess I'm fooling myself into thinking I can actually see all of those pixels. And honestly the 30-110 zoom is no slouch either. Sure, the kit lens isn't anything to write home about, but what kit lens is? Also, remember CX sized lenses are easier to make sharp than FX ones, look at the MTF. Don't believe me though:https://photographylife.com/photographing-butterflies-with-the-1-nikon-cx-70-300https://photographylife.com/sample-bird-images-using-1-nikon-cx-70-300-lens
I'm waiting for a DF type full frame mirrorless that use the F mount. I wonder if I'll ever see that happen.
Perhaps an interesting test would be too take a shot of some detail with your Nikon 1 and lens of choice. A valley, looking up, with a forest is ideal as there is detail at every resolution. Then pixel peep. Is there detail at the pixel level? If not, the sensor is probably out resolving the lens.
Are you looking at the grass in the foreground? Can you post a pic as a counter-example so we can see what you mean. I should mention this was handheld at 1/500, and it was breezy. I'll go back with a tripod.
Heh, your 100% crop looks like, well, crap, here too. Don't take this personally :-) I'll get to a real computer in a few.
The Nikon 1 system needs a better sensor. Hopefully, the back sided sensor in the J5 will allow use of higher ISOs.
Yay! it's only 8 years behind current DX models, and 9 years behind FX models. Okay, that's not too bad, considering the sensor size.
:-) but its just about level with canon's full frames and crop sensors ;-) I think the J5 might be usable ...
