Marvel at every shot

Nikon lens technology for consistently brilliant performance

For over 80 years, NIKKOR has been a leader and innovator in optical technologies, and the 1 NIKKOR VR 70-300 f/4.5-5.6 lens incorporates some of NIKKOR's most exciting advancements. Its the first lens in the 1 NIKKOR lineup to use Super Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass, which provides stunning sharpness, contrast and color rendering. It also features Nano Crystal Coating (N), which nearly eliminates lens flare and ghosting for clearer, sharper images.

Brilliant lens The lens surprised me with its crystal clear sharpness. The VR system works extremely well and the focus limiting switch is great to have for long shots against the sky. I use it with a Nikon 1 V3. December 14, 2014
The "Mighty Mouse" of super telephoto zooms The 1 Nikon CX 70-300 is simply an outstanding lens. It is very sharp throughout the entire zoom range. Colour rendition is stunning. Focusing is fast and accurate, although there can be a slight lag and/or hunting in low light conditions. The VR on this lens is wonderful. I have been able to get good, usable shots at 1/15th of a second with this lens fully extended to 300mm (equivalent field of view of 810mm on a full frame camera). It is light and very easy to hand-hold and carry around with me most of the day. Capturing birds in flight, especially if it is in low contrast situations can be a bit of a struggle with this lens, but that is a quite common thing with mirror-less cameras in general. This lens is also fantastic when used with extension tubes. Overall, this is a superb lens. November 9, 2014
Amazing, Small, Super Telephoto Lens Once I received and tested this expensive lens, I was totally amazed by its results. Even at 300mm, hand held, in low light, the results are remarkable. The attached photo examples say more than I can attempt to explain in writing. September 1, 2014
an great asset to the series 1 line ! a must for nature and sports! I have been using non-native lenses with the FT1 adapter, this 70-300mm CX blows all other X0-300mm lenses completely ! much sharper, excellent flare and purple fringe control. The ability to use to the full potential the 1 series cameras is a plus, the speed of focus and the VR are just awesome. Do I sound happy? of course I am. Price is high but it is worth it. If you are looking for reach (800mm reach) there is NO OTHER OPTION out there, well built, small. July 22, 2014

I have a Nikon V1 camera that I currently use with the lens adaptor unit and use existing Nikon zoom lens I have. Don't want to spend the $ on this lens if there is no advantage to the new lens but would like your input on this. I know that weight is an advantage but what else?

touching up focusing on the Nikon 1 70-300 lens

Can the focus be touched up after the Nikon 1 70-300 lens auto-focuses (as on AFS lenses) via the lens barrel? For example, when photographing a bird in heavy brush the camera may focus on the brush rather than the bird. Short of switching to manual focus on the camera (in this case a V1), is there a way to adjust the focus.

Answer: 
If the focus ring works the same way as my V2+32mm, then yes. Even when MF isn't selected, rotating the focus ring automatically magnifies the image and gives you a focus distance indicator.
