I’d love one of these to go with my other nikon professional equipment?
Whats the bokeh like on the 10-30?

The 1-series are great little cameras.

@Geoff, don’t expect too much shallow DOF with the 10-30mm, the 30-110mm is a little better in that respect.

But if you really want shallow DOF get the FT1 adapter and use D or G-lenses.

With the the G-lenses AF will also work normally, but only with a single focus point.

I thought this was a review of the j3, but your saying it has no electronic view finder like on the j3.  Why am I confused here.  What camera are you reviewing? This is not the first statement in this review here that has confused me. I need an electronic view finder for beach videos.

Judging by the number of times the “J3” is compared to the “J3”, this article is clearly a copy-and-paste job from another source or a review of a previous model. I’d be wary of taking any of its conclusions seriously.

Battery life is the worst I’ve seen on any Nikon camera.

Could anyone who had a chance to try it tell me whether this one is better than J2? Do the improvements done worth its price?

Won’t be visiting your site again due to annoying, moving pop up ads. But good review.

Very unprofessional “review”. A half-assed copy and pasted job.
