Lynn, thanks for starting this thread. I loved a lot of what the Nikon 1 system had to offer. As you've said, the focus speed was superb... and the color produced. And I had a great time using the Nikon adapter that allowed use of F-mount lenses. An AF 50/1.8 mounted on the little V3 was a killer kit for photographing field sports.
I'll post some images here in the next couple of days. :-)
