Nikon 10-30mm Mirrorless Features

  • A slim 3x normal zoom lens compatible with the CX format and covering the 10-30mm range of focal lengths (angle of view equivalent to 27-81mm in 35-mm [135] format)
  • The world's first interchangeable lens equipped with power-drive zoom to utilize an electrically controlled lens cover, which eliminates the need to attach and remove a lens cap
  • Measures approximately 58 mm (maximum diameter) x 28 mm and weighs just 85 g, making it the world's lightest power-drive zoom equipped lens
  • Adoption of a retractable lens mechanism that retracts the lens when it is not in use has enabled a slimmer lens that is compact for storage
  • Equipped with a vibration reduction (VR) function that provides camera-shake compensation equal to a 4.0-stop increase in shutter speed
  • A maximum reproduction ratio of 0.55 x (equivalent in 35 [135] format) and a minimum focus distance of 20 cm enable expression similar to that of a Micro lens for impressive close-ups and beautiful blur characteristics
  • Superior rendering performance with no noticeable ghost or flare, even with shooting in backlit situations
  • Electric power-drive zoom adopted for smooth and comfortable movie recording
  • Equipping the lens with a zoom ring enables familiar interchangeable lens operation, despite the electric power-drive zoom
  • The same refined and minimalistic appearance as other 1 NIKKOR lenses; knurling adopted to make the most of the metal texture

What were they thinking?


Despite having 3 fewer elements, my copy of this lens is sharper (especially at the wide angle settings) than my example of the original standard zoom for the Nikon 1 cameras. But what in the world were the Nikon designers thinking of when they came up with its outsides? The lens has no threads for a filter or a shade or a real cap. If the Nikon 1 V3 is aimed at a more astute photographer than its predecessor, such a lack is a pretty vital impediment. The lens is capped by a set of leafs (like a diaphragm) set immediately between the first element and the front of the housing; these open and the lens extends when the camera is turned on. But if you hurriedly reach for the camera stored in a pocket or small carry-all case you're in serious danger of putting a finger or thumb through the "cap" and either jamming the works or scratching the front element of the lens with them, because this optical element sits directly behind the capping diaphragm. Granted, the new design makes the camera-lens package a little more pocketable, but at the above risks. And the absence of any method for mounting a lens hood or filter is a disaster for a competent photographer. Whatever gains may result from the new optical design are pretty much obliterated because of the losses suffered by the new lens housing. Even though its optics may not be quite as sharp, I prefer to use the original version of this lens in most cases. And by the way, that earlier version costs much less, too!


Clear and sharp images!!!


I use this lens for its wide angle approach to images landscapes. Excellant.
