This is an in-depth nhận xét of the new Nikon 1 30-110milimet f/3.8-5.6 VR lens, also known as “1 Nikkor VR 30-110milimet f/3.8-5.6” that was announced on September 21, 2011 specifically for the new Nikon 1 system, together with three other lenses & the new Nikon V1 & J1 cameras. The Nikon 1 30-110milimet f/3.8-5.6 VR is a consumer-grade telephokhổng lồ lens designed for the new Nikon 1 camera system khổng lồ complement the Nikon 1 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6 VR kit lens.

With its focal length of 30-110milimet on the Nikon 1 CX sensor (2.7x crop factor), its coverage is equivalent lớn a 81-297mm lens in 35milimet format. The variable aperture of f/3.8-5.6 means that its maximum (largest) aperture changes between f/3.8 khổng lồ f/5.6, depending on the focal length. It is a very lightweight lens, và similar khổng lồ interchangeable lenses from other compact mirrorless camera manufacturers, the lens is collapsible, which also makes it quite compact for travel & transportation.


In this Review, I will provide a thorough analysis of the Nikon 1 30-110milimet f/3.8-5.6 VR lens, along with image samples và comparisons against other Nikon 1 lenses such as Nikon 1 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6 VR and Nikon 1 10-100mm f/4.5-5.6 VR.

Lens Handling and Build

If you have sầu used Nikon Nikkor lenses in the past, you will not be disappointed with the new Nikon 1 lenses. The Nikon 1 30-110mm VR is built very well, despite its relatively compact size (for a telephoto lens). The base of the lens barrel seems to be made with the same tough plastic Nikon uses in its DSLR lenses. The thiông chồng rubber zoom ring with a plastic base has pretty good traction lớn easily zoom in và out with fingers & sits in between two thin metal rings, one of which has focal length markings on it. The top of the lens has another metal ring, which is there for aesthetics. The lens employs a retractable lens mechanism, similar khổng lồ the 1 Nikkor VR 10-30milimet f/3.5-5.6, which reduces the kích thước of the lens to approximately 61milimet & locks it in place when fully retracted. Here is a kích thước comparison between 1 Nikkor lenses:

The barrel is fully extended at 110mm focal length, which almost doubles the length of the lens, so it is definitely nice to lớn be able khổng lồ collapse it when not using it. Nikon put plenty of thought inkhổng lồ the new Nikon 1 lens line-up và developed the CX mount from scratch. Compared khổng lồ the current Nikon DX/FX mounts with 8 contacts, the Nikon 1 lenses and cameras have a total of 12 contacts, which allows for more communication between Nikon 1 cameras & lenses. As a result, many of the lens functions are now controlled by the camera, so all the extra buttons and switches have been eliminated. Even the manual focus ring has been removed khổng lồ simplify lens operation. There is only one button on the lens located on the zoom ring and it serves a dual purpose – it is used lớn collapse or extkết thúc the lens & to lớn turn the camera on. I really like that the camera turns on when the lens is extended – one less thing to lớn vì when taking pictures (sadly, collapsing the lens does not turn the camera off). Another positive outcome of the new CX mount with extra contacts is the ability lớn nâng cấp lens firmware through the camera, which has never been possible before. Now you see an extra “L” firmware in addition to lớn the traditional “A” và “B” under “Firmware version” in camera setup menu, which shows what firmware the lens is running on. Nikon has already identified and resolved a serious problem with Vibration Reduction on the Nikon 1 30-110milimet VR lens and released a firmware update.

Just lượt thích the rest of the Nikon 1 lenses, the Nikon 1 30-110mm has a metal mount, which is surprising, because lenses of this caliber from Nikon typically have sầu plastic mounts. This is great news for the Nikon 1 system owners, because it means that all future CX lenses will most likely have metal mounts as well, even on cheap zoom lenses. On the other h&, the rubber gasket on the lens mount that Nikon has been putting on all new AF-S lenses is absent, which could make the lens và camera more susceptible lớn dust. As of now, none of the Nikon 1 system components (including all current lenses) are weather sealed. On a positive note, I have used the Nikon 1 30-110milimet f/3.8-5.6 VR in cold, windy and very dusty environments và I did not have sầu any issues with dust specks making their way inlớn the camera or the lens.

Despite its compact form size, the Nikon 1 30-110mm sports impressive sầu optical features such as Vibration Reduction (VR), Super Integrated Coating (SIC), Internal Focusing (IF) & Silent Stepping AF Motor (STM). Vibration Reduction is Nikon’s term for image stabilization, which is a very useful feature in low light situations, where camera shake and slow shutter tốc độ can cause images lớn be blurry. Super Integrated Coating helps reduce lens flare and ghosting. Internal focusing means that the lens barrel does not change when the lens focuses. And finally, Silent Stepping AF Motor is a br& new motor specifically developed for the CX lenses, which allows for super fast and near-silent autofocus operation.

The Nikon 1 30-110mm f/3.8-5.6 VR has a complex optical design consisting of a total of 18 lens elements (in 12 groups), 2 of which are aspherical elements. Aspherical elements greatly reduce lens aberrations such as Spherical & Chromatic Aberration & significantly increase lens sharpness. Even the Nikon 50mm f/1.4G does not have sầu a single aspherical element by comparison.

Unlike the Nikon 1 10-30mm VR kit lens, the Nikon 1 30-110mm VR comes with a plastic “HB-N103” lens hood. Nikon packed the lens hood with the lens for a reason – telephokhổng lồ lenses are typically much more prone to ghosting và flare than wide-angle lenses. See more info about this under “Ghosting và Flare” section further down below.

Autofocus Performance & Accuracy

As I have sầu already pointed out in my Nikon 1 V1 review, the new autofocus system on the Nikon 1 system is phenomenal when compared lớn other mirrorless competitors. It is very fast & accurate, thanks khổng lồ the hybrid autofocus system that Nikon specifically developed for the Nikon 1 cameras. Hybrid autofocus is a combination of phase và contrast detect AF that work together khổng lồ obtain quiông chồng và accurate focus. For the much faster hybrid autofocus operation, Nikon had lớn develop a br& new AF lens motor called “Silent Stepping AF Motor” (STM). Compared lớn the “Silent Wave sầu Motor” (SWM) that Nikon uses on its lakiểm tra AF-S lenses, STM is much quieter & quicker.

I had a very positive experience with autofocus performance & accuracy of the Nikon 1 30-110milimet lens. It truly does acquire focus quickly, silently and most importantly, accurately. I shot several hundred images with the 30-110mm lens and I had a hard time finding images that were out of focus. Large depth of field due lớn the small 2.7x crop factor sensor surely plays a role here, but I have sầu shot with point và shoot cameras with even smaller sensors before và managed to lớn get a lot more out of focus images.

Vibration Reduction

The Image Stabilization / Vibration Reduction giải pháp công nghệ found on the Nikon 1 30-110milimet f/3.8-5.6 lens is very similar to the VR technology found on modern DSLR lenses – it is very effective sầu when shot at slow shutter speeds. There are, however, some differences in the way VR is deployed on the new mirrorless cameras versus DSLR lenses. First, VR does not engage on DSLR lenses unless the shutter button is half-pressed (or AF-ON pressed). This is not the case with the Nikon mirrorless cameras – when VR is turned on in camera thiết lập, it is constantly on. You vày not have to half-press the shutter button – it will always be active sầu. This seems to lớn be a flaw in the Nikon 1 system design, because having VR turned on constantly will have its toll on battery life.

Second, VR is no longer controlled through lens switches, but rather from inside the camera menu (as reported earlier). Lastly, for some strange reason, both the Nikon 1 J1 và V1 cameras were shipped with VR turned on in “Active” mode. This is rather strange, because the active sầu mode is supposed khổng lồ be used when a person stands on a moving platform (inside a car, on a boat, etc). Not sure if this is a firmware issue, but it would be interesting to lớn find out exactly why Nikon decided lớn bởi vì that. Despite these differences & reported issues, Vibration Reduction works great. I would leave sầu it on “Normal” mode within the camera thiết lập & only turn it off when mounting the camera on a tripod.
