The FT1 adaptor is an amazing item. It converts my Nikon VR 70-300mm lens into a 189-810mm VR lens when used on my V1. The lens still has the vibration reduction and it's auto focus abilities with no loss of image quality. I get excellent results hand held with this combination. For the price it is a real bargain. Have you priced what a DSLR lens with a reach to 800mm would cost? I have and it is not pretty. Then there is the weight to consider. For airshows or birding the Nikon 1 series with the FT1 and various full size Nikon lenses is an excellent alternative. The FT1 has no glass so does not degrade images and the clever electronic contacts transmit all the necessary information so that the lens works properly with the camera body. The adapter supports AF-I and AF-S lenses, and it supports VR on those lenses where the lens has that feature. The Nikon websites have lens compatibility guides. Search for 'Mount Adaptor FT1'. Due to weight considerations, with a lens like the 70-300mm fitted it is recommended to use the tripod adaptor on the FT1 for mounting on a tripod or camera strap, rather than the tripod mount on the camera body. You may need to have a firmware update on the V1 to use the FT1. This is a free update from Nikon. The Nikon 1 V1 is supported from firmware version A 1.10/B 1.10, Nikon 1 J1 from firmware version A 1.10/B 1.10 according to Nikon. They also say Auto focus may be less precise S: Shutter-priority auto, A: Aperture-priority auto, or M: Manual is selected for Exposure mode. I use P: Program mode with excellent results. BTW, 'FT1' stands for 'F to 1'. That is, Nikon F mount to Nikon 1 adaptor.

If you own any Nikon FX or DX telephoto lenses for your other camera bodies, then you must have one of these adapters for your CX format Nikon J/V one or two camera. The crop-factor of 2.7 enables you to take fabulous long tele-photo shots without any loss of aperture or optical quality as one would get by using a teleconverter. I have a 70-300 f4.5/5.6 zoom which, on the V1, becomes an f5.6 810mm lens! The VR works using this adapter and so one can take 810mm shots hand-held with a lens costing just 450: try doing that on an FX body. Fantastic bit of kit.

However, Nikon charge a horrendous sum (around 220) for what is nothing more than a lens mount adapter with a pass-through electrical connection for Nikons G series lenses. But it is very well made (all metal) and works beautifully.

One word of warning though; if you mount a VR lens on the adapter, it's energized the whole time and not just when you press the shutter release, and so, you must remember to turn VR off at the lens if you normally shoot with the camera switched on all the time, otherwise you'll have flat battery in no time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Genius 11 May 2012
By Mo VINE VOICE
Straight to the chase with tis one - genius. For any lens adapter to work without reducing any F stops deserves credit. One of the best attributes to include is the ability to increase the range of your F Mount lenses using the V1 or J1 cameras. The crop factor is 2.7, therefore a 200mm lens is now at 540mm 2.8f.
The camera bodies require the latest firmware to enable it to recognise the adapter. It can autofocus and if you have a VR lens, then this too works. Only one downside and I really wish it was possible is the continuous focus. The camera defaults to single auto focus, therefore panning shots or tracking shots are not possible unless you can pan and focus. I also think the battery is drained faster, therefore may be worth buying a spare! Overall its brilliant and it costs far less on Amazon.

5.0 out of 5 stars You've got to get one! 12 April 2014
By Bigcat

Alright it's expensive! I put off buying this adapter for a long time because of the price. However, now I've bought it I cant imagine being without it. I've used it with a 300F4 Nikkor and a 40mm F2.8 Micro Nikkor and the results have been amazing! The image quality is simply stunning. An interesting feature when used with the micro Nikkor is an increase in the reproduction ratio. With the lens set at closest focus distance the repro ratio is 1:1 on a DX format camera. But adding in the 2.7x crop that the CX sensor imposes is like automatically enlarging the image even further.
I now find myself looking at current AFS lens and multipying the focal length by 2.7 to see what I would get! How about an 85 F1.4, transformed into a 230mm F1.4!!
The only caveat seems to be that other manufacturers lens dont work properly with it, even those that offer the latest features on the DX cameras?

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but expensive for what it is. 27 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase
The adaptor works with all my lenses apart from my 10.5mm AF DX, but I'm disappointed that it does not support continuous focus, and that the 10.5 has to be on manual focus only. It is robust and well made, and makes my V1 much more useful now I can put my full sized lenses on it.

Another down side is that because of the small sensor size, wide angle subjects are difficult when using the FT-1. There is no getting away from that fact, but the adaptor is not at fault.

To sum up, I think is is a good but expensive addition to my camera bag. I feel that a price of 120 to 140 would have been about right. As it is I feel slightly gouged by Nikon.

FT1 firmware update 1.10 now adds AF-C capability with Nikon lenses. This finally makes it very attractive for some types of wildlife photography, with for example a 300 f2.8 now becoming a massive 810 f 2.8 ! The unit is not cheap but well built and for now it seems Nikon will update it as required. Please bear in mind that compatibility with some Nikon lenses and third party lenses can be an issue so check with Nikon and/or your lens manufacturer before taking the plunge to buy it.
