In another word the miniature 70-300 in N1 mount would be a hard sell to folks who also shoot with their regular Nikon dSLR, when an F-mount lens will work with both. i.e. the middle of the road Nikon AF-S VR Zoom-NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED is a very decent lens if you don't mind the regular size
Yes, being a non Nikon shooter does put me at a disadvantage. But since a good used lens can be had for pretty cheap even with that, the V1 and the adapter I would be in for about a half as much as a new DSLR body would cost.

As for the size I could see the miniature being great to pack around but perhaps actually a disadvantage when shooting. 800mm is hard to hand hold as it is and I prefer a little bulk to settle things down, much the way target rifles are heavier than field ones.

Totally agreed (and the regular lens option is also more economical)

Well, I got the camera yesterday but the adapter is still not here what I get for trying to save $10 buying it off ebay rather than thru Amzon I guess. But at least I have the kit lens so I can play around and get familiar with things. MF is going to be 'interesting' with this thing for sure. But the size is nice and I could see how the 10-100 on it would be a nice zoo combo or 2nd cam to go with my DSLR with a long lens on it. Rather have 2 cams than have to change lenses.
