Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) at Olvera Street in Los Angels, California
The Nikon 1 10-100mm zoom lens is optically superb and elevates the Nikon 1 system to new heights. The focal length of 27 to 270mm (35mm equivalent) is very versatile and the excellent Vibration Reduction (VR) feature produces images that rival DSLR results. The photo below was taken with a Nikon 1 V1 camera body at a shutter speed of 1/125 of a second (hand held), an aperture of f/5.3, a focal length of 77.49mm (35mm equivalent), an ISO of 200, Auto White Balance, and Matrix Metering.
This zoom len is very handy for travel. Picture qualities are good. It can take very sharp video but it suffers from exposure problem. The auto exposures cause a lot blinking in the video. I hope Nikon will come up with a firmware fix soon. Check out this sample video to see the problem:
