Yeah stick a 300mm f/2.8 on the front of the v1 and try some action shots
Curious how the AF performs.
PLZ add a couple micro shots......
Unfortunately I don't have an adapter - but the 110 is the equivalent of 297mm f/5.6

Do you mean macro?
I think the term micro was used because nikon calls it's range of macro lenses micro.
Well trying out the adapter would be a good test in itself, but if you don't have one...
We've got the 10mm, 10-30mm, 30-110mm and Speedlight.
The Nikon term "Micro" is used for historical reasons.
The lenses came about when they needed to microfilm text that contained the Kanji. Lenses that were perfectly adequate for text in Latin script proved useless when used with the much more elaborate Kanji characters. Micro is just an abbreviation of "microfilm".
Actually, when you think about it, Nikon's use of the term "micro" is much more appropriate than the more general term "macro" when applied to lenses used for extreme close-up photography.
Compare with the difference between micro-economics and macro-economics. In photographic terms, "macro" should really be used for lenses that are used to "take in the whole scene".
Going back to your question, I would like to know how sharp and detailed an A3+ print is when made from, say, 50% of the image area.
Can u try the 60 shots a second and post all 60 of them!
How are you going to process the RAW files as it appears that software like Adobe's Camera Raw ( CS5 & Lightroom equivalent ) do not yet support these cameras ?
Yep set the Nikons to 50mm f4 and then take an image at ISO 200, 800 and 3200+ and then print the images on to an A2 size paper.
Do the same with the Olympus Pen and the Sony Nex machines and lets see how they compare when viewed from 2, 4 and 6 feet away.
AF and ISO performance please, Josh.

Nikons own softwares have already been updated for these new cameras, Plus when dealing with Nikon RAW data files, The Nikon software is much better....!!!
I don't have a particular question, But it would be interesting to see if these latest " Toys " actually live up to the " Hype " and advertising bull...!!!
So take your time and give them a real going over.....
Come on..... what's the hold-up?
You've had the kit for hours now - and no sign yet of an in-depth appraisal!!
