Default I love my V1 ;)

First samples with my 400mm prime (i.e. 1080mm handheld)

Awesome stuff. Was this from your kayak? Do you find the V1 addictive? I know I do

Yes it's from the kayak... I stopped using the SigMonster after getting this camera combo
-> Now I can carry two cameras with me instead of just one big monster

I really the 4-way switch to change the exposure compensation and switching between single-shot AF vs continuous AF... 10fps and their images sizes are still smaller than 1 frame on the D800!

I really like the image size, means that my run of the mill laptop won't be over taxed processing them.

Out of curiosity, what is your typical set up these days now that you have the V1? As much as I love big glass I could never see me lugging around a sigmonster even if I could afford one. I think I have only left the house a handful of times with my old 200-500/5.6 Tamron and that must weigh at most half of what the Sigma weighs. Even the 400/4 seems like a lot of work to take on a hike. Which is why I love the V1.

I normally take two cameras on the kayak

A 400mm prime with my D800 for distant shots, and a Bigma with the 1DMrkIII for quick reaction to events that might come up... I don't have to carry them as the Nikon rest on the kayak shell with its big lens pointing down in front of me while the canon sit on my lap.

-> The V1 with the 120-300 f/2.8 replaces the D800 in this case, and also like my D800, the V1 can tag GPS info on its images as well.
