Sharpness at 10mm
The sharpness tests for this review were carried out with the Nikon 1 Nikkor 10mm f/2.8 VR lens attached to a Nikon 1 V1 camera body, which in turn was mounted on a sturdy tripod. The self-timer was activated to avoid any blurring from depressing the shutter release. Tonal and colour variances across the crops are due to changes in natural light during the session.
The full frame at 10mm
The centre and edges are both sharpest wide-open at f/2.8. The f/4 setting is not far behind and f/5.8 is still acceptable but diffraction starts to visibly degrade the image by f/8. At f/11 the effect of diffraction is very obvious and is best avoided.
