    Nikon 1 J5

    Nikon 1 J5

    Sorry if this is a bit late, but, the J5 WILL work with the 200-500/5.6 and 600/4, IF you use a dumb adaptor. Set camera (J5) to M (manual exposure on the top dial of camera), you will have to manual focus the lens, your aperture will be f4 or f5.6 pending on lens, and is not adjustable. The...

    Great image of this very noisy bird, there is a small but thriving colony of these in the Soto Grande complex in S.Spain,( East of Gib) where they live and nest in the palm trees, great little birds to watch, very fine image.

    Classic image of a little owl, these are lovely little birds as your image shows, have seen many of these on the old road between Carceres and Truijllo, (Extremadura). Great picture Duponti.

    Sigma 150/2.8 vs Nikon 200/4

    Hi Steve, I have the micro nikkor 200/4, and a DG version (Nikon fit) of the Sigma 180/3.5 (ie not OS ) and also a Canon fit 150 Sigma DG version. The two Nikon fits give excellent results on DSLRs and also on the Nikon 1 cameras with the FT1 adaptor. Many insect images in my gallery taken with...
