    Not the weather for bird photography so decided to test the V2 the same as i did m4/3,i feel i have learnt a bit more about using mirrorless cameras now.

    Took 22 shots of the car coming towards me at up to 30mph,i havent posted them all but the first and last and a few spaced out from the middle,i wish they made a sensible priced 100-200,

    I did try a burst @ 15fps,took 50 shots and it kept attaining focus and loosing it through the series

    The AF speed & accuracy on the Nikon 1 cameras is quite amazing. I often use mine at the race track where my Fuji XT-1 doesn't cut it.

    You have to hand it to Nikon they cracked the CAF with these, the let down is the dated sensor for handling high contrast areas and the fact the longest lens i have is 110mm, shots of a goose coming in, none missed out they are all here warts an all as they say.

    Great bird catches Mike. Considering you are using the 30-110 you have done very well. Since you have the FT-1 already take a look on UK ebay & see if you can find a cheap 70-300 AFP VR. I found mine for $162 US. When it comes here I'll try & shoot some samples for you.

    Mike, sorry I never got any samples to you. For my style of shooting I found I never used it, just like the 70-300 CX I had before it. It was used as a trade to bring the cost of my XT-2 down.

    FWIW I think the 70-300 AF-P is a good lens & a bargain.
