I recently bought this lens when it went on sale at Henry's Cameras. I've used it for some client videos and it is a very capable video lens, especially if you use the zoom very slowly it almost creates the feeling of a dolly shot.
I've also been using this lens for landscape photography since I can easily mount my 77mm polarizing filter on it with a step-up ring. Results have been excellent.

I personally love this lens! I can go out and not take the other nikkor 1 lenses as this lens is capable of everything they are so there is less bulk while traveling. This said it does take some getting used to, having such a huge lens (relative to the 10-30 kit lens) on such a small camera body, but once you get used to it it is amazing! the zoom is extremely smooth and practically silent, great for videos. the only issue I found was that when you are using the included petal hood and the standard flash you can get a shadow in the image as the flash is not quite tall enough to avoid the hood. but other than this small issue this is my new favourite lens for my J1!

The best 10x zoom on the market today

In my opinion, the 10-100 /4.5-5.6VR PD-Zoom lens is the best single technical achievement in Nikon 1 line of lenses and bodies. Probably it is the best 10x zoom on the market today and makes both kit lenses 10-30 and 30-110 obsolete.

This lense is amazing. I am by no means an expert photographer but I can take photos that look like one took them. I hardly use the other two lenses. I highly recommend this lense.
Just a tidbit I learned about from Fort Worth Camera. There is an adapter u can buy for this camera that allows u to use any Nikon lense. If u are in FW, I highly recommend this store. I bought my lense there. I could not find it where I lived. They are hard to find.

I have used this lens to make several videos. It works great on the V1, smooth zooming and extremely quiet. I would recommend this lens to anyone planning to use the V1 for video.

I find that this is a wonderful lens for movies. The zoom is extremely smooth and easy to operate. I think the size of it and the fact that the motorized zoom make it more difficult for single images. Because I don't do much vidio I personaly wish I had selected a different lens.
