Nikon's first 10x Power Drive zoom lens

A versatile 10-100mm power zoom, this lens was developed specifically for shooting movies. The lens features three adjustable zoom speeds to bring coverage variety, plus a voice coil AF motor (VCM) that keeps camera pan-in and pan-out activity silent. Vibration Reduction (VR) reduces the chance of blurred photos. Use this lens to capture everything from portraits to sweeping landscape views.

Silent motor lens perfect for movie making

Capture motion in full HD (1080p) movies

Vary your angles and depth of field with the 10-100mm lens. This lens is equipped with power drive zoom and Vibration Reduction (VR). Also included is the voice coil AF motor (VCM) for quiet autofocusing. Powerful and versatile, your expressions in movie mode will sizzle. Whether working up close with wide view, or framing a horizon in the distance, the 10-100mm lens puts flexibility into your workflow.

Wide depth of field perfect for portrait to landscape

Subjects framed to precision

Command extended depth of field with the 10-100mm and isolate subjects from their backgrounds for both photos and video. Equipped with Vibration Reduction (VR), the 10-100mm is ideal for movie recording, as well as photo capture sharpness. The 10-100mm 1 NIKKOR lens applies three ED and two aspherical lens elements to ensure only the highest quality and color images—even at the widest aperture settings—are obtained. The HRI (High Refractive Index) lens element keeps lens compact while offering superior contrast at even maximum aperture.

Move in closer

Shoot from afar

Use the amazing reach of the 10-100mm and bring subjects close. Get right in the action by maximizing to the full 100mm and retain sharpness at 2.8 feet from your subject. Even at this magnification photos and movies come out crystal clear and sharp courtesy of Vibration Reduction (VR).
Vibration Reduction icon

Vibration Reduction

This innovative VR system minimizes image blur caused by camera shake. It allows handheld shooting at dusk, at night, and even in poorly lit interiors. The lens' VR system also detects automatically when the photographer pans—no special mode is required.
High Refractive Index lens icon

High Refractive Index lens

With a refractive index of more than 2.0, one HRI lens can offer effects equivalent to those obtained with several normal glass elements and can compensate for both field curvature and spherical aberrations. Therefore, HRI lenses achieve great optical performance in an even more compact body.
Internal Focusing icon

Internal Focusing

Imagine being able to focus a lens without it changing in size. Nikon's IF technology enables just that. All internal optical movement is limited to the interior of the nonextending lens barrel. This allows for a more compact, lightweight construction as well as a closer focusing distance.
Aspherical lens element icon

Aspherical lens element

Aspherical lenses virtually eliminate the problem of coma and other types of lens aberration—even when used at the widest aperture. They are particularly useful in correcting the distortion in wideangle lenses. In addition, use of aspherical lenses contributes to a lighter and smaller lens design.
Extra-low Dispersion Glass icon

Extra-low Dispersion Glass

Nikon developed ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass to enable the production of lenses that offer superior sharpness and color correction by minimizing chromatic aberration. ED glass offers all the benefits, yet none of the drawbacks of calcium fluorite-based glass. With this innovation, Nikon developed several types of ED glass suitable for various lenses.
Nikon Super Integrated Coating icon

Nikon Super Integrated Coating

To enhance the performance of its optical lens elements, Nikon employs an exclusive multilayer lens coating that helps reduce ghost and flare to a negligible level. Nikon Super Integrated Coating achieves a number of objectives, including minimized reflection in the wider wavelength range and superior color balance and reproduction.

Amazing! This lense is amazing. I am by no means an expert photographer but I can take photos that look like one took them. I hardly use the other two lenses. I highly recommend this lense. Just a tidbit I learned about from Fort Worth Camera. There is an adapter u can buy for this camera that allows u to use any Nikon lense. If u are in FW, I highly recommend this store. I bought my lense there. I could not find it where I lived. They are hard to find. May 14, 2012
Wow, great lens for video I have used this lens to make several videos. It works great on the V1, smooth zooming and extremely quiet. I would recommend this lens to anyone planning to use the V1 for video. March 24, 2012
Wonderful lens for video and landscape I recently bought this lens when it went on sale at Henry's Cameras. I've used it for some client videos and it is a very capable video lens, especially if you use the zoom very slowly it almost creates the feeling of a dolly shot. I've also been using this lens for landscape photography since I can easily mount my 77mm polarizing filter on it with a step-up ring. Results have been excellent. June 16, 2014
Amazing Lens! I personally love this lens! I can go out and not take the other nikkor 1 lenses as this lens is capable of everything they are so there is less bulk while traveling. This said it does take some getting used to, having such a huge lens (relative to the 10-30 kit lens) on such a small camera body, but once you get used to it it is amazing! the zoom is extremely smooth and practically silent, great for videos. the only issue I found was that when you are using the included petal hood and the standard flash you can get a shadow in the image as the flash is not quite tall enough to avoid the hood. but other than this small issue this is my new favourite lens for my J1! December 23, 2013
The best 10x zoom on the market today In my opinion, the 10-100 /4.5-5.6VR PD-Zoom lens is the best single technical achievement in Nikon 1 line of lenses and bodies. Probably it is the best 10x zoom on the market today and makes both kit lenses 10-30 and 30-110 obsolete. February 10, 2013

Answer: 
The 1 series of lenses would not work on any F mount body because the image circle of the 1 series lenses is too small for the larger sensors used in F mount bodies.

Answer: 
Did a little research, the flash on the J1 will cast a shadow when shooting on a downward angle . It is not high enough to clear the lens end.

Answer: 
The 1 NIKKOR VR 10-100mm f/4.5-5.6 PD-ZOOM will power zoom on the Nikon1 V2 if the lens firmware is version 1.0.1. To check your lens firmware version attach the lens to the camera and then go to the camera's menu. Go to the wrench icon, scroll down to Firmware Version, and click "OK".

If your "L" firmware is 1.0.1 then please contact Nikon Technical Support for further assistance : http://support.nikonusa.com. If the "L" firmware version is not 1.0.1 then your lens firmware needs to be updated. Unfortunately you cannot update your lens firmware using the V2 camera. If you also have a Nikon1 J1, J2 or V1 then you can update your lens firmware using one of those cameras. The firmware download and instructions can be found here: http://support.nikonusa.com/app/ans...

If you only have the V2 available then you will need to have the firmware updated by Nikon Service or by a Nikon Authorized Repair Station. Please see the following page for more information:

Answer: 
The Retractable Lens Lock Switch on the 1 NIKKOR VR 10-100 f/4.5-5.6 PD-Zoom lets you lock the lens in the extended position so you don't have to wait for the lens to extend when powering on your Nikon 1 Camera.

You can download a copy of the manual for this lens from this address:

Answer: 
In the off mode the lens will automatically retract when camera is powered off or goes into standby. When you turn the camera on it automatically extends. If you want to lock the lens in the extended position(allows for immediate shooting when camera turns on) set the switch to lock.

Answer: 
All Nikon 1 lenses are compatible with the Nikon 1 AW 1 however not all of the Nikon 1 lenses are waterproof. Nikon does offers two waterproof lenses for the Nikon 1 AW 1 which are the 1 NIKKOR AW 10mm f/2.8 and the 1 NIKKOR AW 11-27.5mm f/3.5-5.6.
