Nikon V3 Shooter’s Report II: Of lenses, accessories, and SLR-slaying performance!

It's time for another look at Nikon's flagship mirrorless camera, as Imaging Resource reviewer Jason Schneider files the second part of his Nikon V3 Shooter's Report. (Not read the first part? You'll want to start there first!)

For Part II of the Shooter's Report, Jason takes a look at some of the accessories that go hand-in-hand with the Nikon V3 and its kin. As well as 1-series lenses including the 1 NIKKOR VR 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6 PD-ZOOM, 1 NIKKOR VR 30-110mm f/3.8-5.6, and 1 NIKKOR 32mm f/1.2, he tries out Nikon's clever FT1 mount adapter, which allows Nikon SLR shooters to mount some of their favorite glass on a seriously fast body unencumbered by flappy mirrors.


And then there's the Nikon DF-N1000 Electronic Viewfinder -- but that's a story in itself, as you'll find out in the Shooter's Report! Nor is that all: Before concluding, Jason shares some of his thoughts on the Nikon V3's trail-blazing performance, which handily bests even the most expensive of professional digital SLRs.

Read Part II of the Nikon V3 Shooter's Report now for the full story, or start with Part I if you're new to Jason's review.
