Pros:Very sharp from all opening, very light, compact (not at the level of a pancake, but almost) beautiful colors, ability to blur and detach the subjects from the background (even on the small sensor CX Nikon 1)
Cons:The price. Almost 200 euros, new, I seem tantini, especially considering that the equivalent focal optics on larger formats cost practically the same money... Even less, in some cases (I think of the Panasonic 25 1.7)
Opinion:In my opinion who has the Nikon system 1 can not give up this optics. On 10 2.8, another fixed for Nikon's J and V series cameras, at the end it doesn't give much more than it already offers the optics kit (the 10 30 or 11-27.5), and therefore I would not do somersaults to buy it... But this 18.5, equivalent to the 50mm on FF, allows you to make an important step forward to the whole system. In good light conditions it results in a sharpness, a "crystalline" rendering of great pleasantness. Then, not least, approaching the subject you can get a "break" visible from the background that the zoom can not allow. Too bad for the price. They had sold it to 100-120 euros, would make the small fortune of the Nikon Mignon system. Instead.... 200 euro new... At that price a person starts to look other than optics for a system, that "1", which is unlikely to be the only or the main one of an amateur photographer...
Cons:fall light at full aperture visible, does not appear to be very "robust"
Opinion:The photos are great, even wide open at both the center and the edges are buoni.rnMessa to focus quickly and accurately, nice focus (within the limits of a system that uses a sensor to 1''). RnPerfetto for the system "one" , along with the 10mm f / 2,8 is a pairing light and efficient, allowing you to deal with many situations are very satisfied with successo.rnNe
Pros:Crisp, light, blurred pleasant, very bright. Holds well the flare
Cons:Size, lens hood
Opinion:Purchased just came out, it was exactly what I was looking for to complete layette v1 to be attached to the light reflex. rnPreso 9 months ago, since then the 10-30 kit has remained virtually always in the closet ... the coupled-18.5mm v1 really works like a charm and seem made for each other: excellent yield even in situations of bad luce.rnNitido, with a beautiful defocused (although, given the focal length and the sensor size, to play with the depth of field you have to open and close very much ... but it is a bit 'a limitation inherent in the system 1) ... the short distance of focus lets you do almost small "macro", even if only to subjects of discrete dimensioni.rnrnDue negative notes: rn - The hood could include it. rnNon objectively serves a lot (I've never felt the need, frankly), because the lens suffers very little backlighting and flare, but I still think a affarino plastic which is the lens hood should always be included in a lens pay nearly 200 euro .. rn - could be more; Piccolo.rnHa practically the same size of 10-30 in the rest position ... had been more pancakes (like the 10mm) would be perfetto.rnMa are absolutely secondary defects ... if you have a Nikon 1 for me this lens is an almost obligatory purchase.
