Nikon 1 Series J2 (10) (Custom)

The Nikon 1 J2, an update to the Nikon 1 J1,  is now available in orange, dark red, white, black, pink, and grey. The Nikon 1 J2 has a more compact 11-27.5mm f/3.5-5.6 lens, as well as a waterproof case.

Nikon 1 Series J2 (2) (Custom)

The new 11-27.5mm lens is very compact, almost as small as the 10mm pancake lens, and when mounted on the J2, you begin to understand why Nikon released this lens, as it makes the most of the compact body.  

Nikon 1 Series J2 (6) (Custom)

There's a new "Creative" mode on the dial which can actually be set to a number of things, including P/A/S/M modes so that you can go directly into the preferred manual shooting mode. Other creative effects available on this include easy panoramic, night landscape, night portrait, backlighting, soft, miniature effect and selective colour.

Too little, too late. No VR, few mm shorter, no big deal...why not faster lens when a chip is (compare to APS-C) so small?
