The 1 series of lenses would not work on any F mount body because the image circle of the 1 series lenses is too small for the larger sensors used in F mount bodies.

The FT1 Mount adapter is only for the Nikon 1 cameras. Unfortunately we cannot speculate about future products until official information is announced on our web site: www.nikonusa.com.

Did a little research, the flash on the J1 will cast a shadow when shooting on a downward angle . It is not high enough to clear the lens end.

The 1 NIKKOR VR 10-100mm f/4.5-5.6 PD-ZOOM will power zoom on the Nikon1 V2 if the lens firmware is version 1.0.1. To check your lens firmware version attach the lens to the camera and then go to the camera's menu. Go to the wrench icon, scroll down to Firmware Version, and click "OK".

If your "L" firmware is 1.0.1 then please contact Nikon Technical Support for further assistance : http://support.nikonusa.com. If the "L" firmware version is not 1.0.1 then your lens firmware needs to be updated. Unfortunately you cannot update your lens firmware using the V2 camera. If you also have a Nikon1 J1, J2 or V1 then you can update your lens firmware using one of those cameras. The firmware download and instructions can be found here: http://support.nikonusa.com/app/ans...

If you only have the V2 available then you will need to have the firmware updated by Nikon Service or by a Nikon Authorized Repair Station. Please see the following page for more information:

The Retractable Lens Lock Switch on the 1 NIKKOR VR 10-100 f/4.5-5.6 PD-Zoom lets you lock the lens in the extended position so you don't have to wait for the lens to extend when powering on your Nikon 1 Camera.

You can download a copy of the manual for this lens from this address:

In the off mode the lens will automatically retract when camera is powered off or goes into standby. When you turn the camera on it automatically extends. If you want to lock the lens in the extended position(allows for immediate shooting when camera turns on) set the switch to lock.

All Nikon 1 lenses are compatible with the Nikon 1 AW 1 however not all of the Nikon 1 lenses are waterproof. Nikon does offers two waterproof lenses for the Nikon 1 AW 1 which are the 1 NIKKOR AW 10mm f/2.8 and the 1 NIKKOR AW 11-27.5mm f/3.5-5.6.

Question

Is clicking/rattling sound normal on the 10-100mm?

I received a new 10-100mm lens together with a new V1 body. As I unpacked the lens, I noticed clicking/rattling noise from inside the lens. The noise sounded like loose parts.

Once mounted on the V1 body, the noise was still there albeit less severe. The V1 camera did recognize the lens so that is good. I didn't proceed to shoot any pics or video as I was not sure whether the lens was faulty and didn't want to risk further damages.

Anyone else having this issue? Any advice greatly appreciated.

Thanks, dave

P.S. I posted same question to Nikon Support a couple of days ago but no reply yet.

The 1Nikkor 10-100mm Power Zoom Lens should not make a rattling noise with slight or normal movement but will with vigorous movment (which is not recommended). If you are hearing the noise with normal movement and you have not yet received an answer to your posting to Nikon Support please contact Nikon Technical Support by phone.

Nikon operates factories all across the globe and each operates to the same high standard. While individual cameras are marked with their country of manufacture, we cannot make a blanket statement about the country of origin of a specific type/model of camera.

Question

Getting Error Message while on J1 using 1 NIKKOR VR 10-100mm f/4.5-5.6 PD-ZOOM w/ v1.01

The L Firmware is already at 1.01, the camera A/B is at 1.40. I can create this error message if I zoom all the way in and attempt to auto-focus. Turning the camera off and then on again clears the error message until the next time it appears. I am curious, the AF Assist light on the J1 body doesn't clear this lens, should AF assist be disabled?

Note: The attached picture was used to display the error message and is not from my J1, but I have the same error message
