Nikon 1 30-110mm f/3.8-5.6 Nikkor VR review by Prime Minister

Pros: Small, light, fast and silent autofocus, build quality
Cons: Slightly soft corners, small aperture

The build quality of this little lens is very good. The lens barrel and bayonet are made of metal and the lens weighs almost nothing. It feels and looks clean and sturdy. I find the zoom ring a bit stiff.


Autofocus is fast, accurate and silent. In good light it's lightning quick but even in low light the lens locks on reasonably quick. The image stabilization allows hand held shooting at low shutter speeds. It's quite effective.


Center sharpness and contrast are very good wide open. Totally usable, very nice. The corners are a little soft though.


Unfortunately there also is some visible CA and distortion. Some of it can be removed in post processing. Overall the image quality is very decent for a small lens like this.


If you like the Nikon 1 system, I think this is a vey nice lens to have in your bag.

Pros: sharp, sharp sharp. excellent size to zoom length quotient
Cons: none

This lens is a keeper. Super sharp, and tiny for what it does. A must have lens to compliment your 10-30VR. Buy this lens and enjoy the reach it gives.
