Compact telephoto captures wide range of scenes

Work with superior zoom coverage and capture high caliber images that run the gamut, from sports action shot from the bleachers, to the most subtle gradations of hair blowing in the wind. Extend your reach with the 30-110mm (picture angle equivalent of an 81-297mm in 35mm format), and isolate subjects from their backgrounds with clarity. IF (Internal Focusing) maintains compactness of size—even when using the zoom.

Portraits with impact

Beautiful portraits focus on the person

A perfect compliment to the 10-30mm, the 30-110mm takes portraiture a step farther. Stunning portraits with soft focus background effects are yours. Compact and easy to carry, realize the most subtle expressions and minute details. 1 NIKKOR lens precision offers superior sharpness and color correction—even at the widest aperture. Because portraits are usually taken spur of the moment, there is Vibration Reduction (VR) to keep images blur-free.

Focus on the action

Get in close—even from afar

Get up close and personal to inject panache to your sports photography using the 30-110mm lens. Equipped with Vibration Reduction (VR), this lens separates subjects from their backgrounds—making it a great choice for honing in on subjects and create photos that are visually vibrant and perfect to upload to your blog or social media sites. Even at the most extended magnification, photos are rendered crystal clear and sharp, making the 30-110mm a perfect option for fast moving subjects from afar.

Beautiful landscape images come to life

Wide depth of field surrenders dazzling views

Work with extended zoom range using the 30-110mm and produce sweeping looks that express your world. Subjects that need to be isolated from their backgrounds, such as a boat at sail, are easy with this lens. Equipped with Vibration Reduction (VR) up to four stops, you'll nab every precise color detail seen with dramatic sunsets.

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.
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.
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.

Not Blown away, Not Disappointed This seems to be the comparable "telephoto" lens to the nikon 55-200mm lens for the entry level dslr cameras. the 30-110mm lens is about the same comparable zoom that you would get out of a point and shoot digital zoom camera but this is all optical which is much clearer. for the price, it is not a bad lens and definitely a must have for the nikon 1 series cameras. I would recommend this lens for closer zoom situations but it is certainly not great for taking a picture of a bird at the top of a tree. overall, a great lens for the price (around 160.00 on ebay) but a bit disappointing in the zoom aspect. February 20, 2014
Product disconnect When I first saw the Nikon 1 I was impressed. So, I bought one - in red. I couldn't swing the payments for the entire package, but thought I'd purchase the body and a general purpose lense first, then buy the zoom (30-110mm) later. Now when I am ready to buy, I am told that only the white or black lenses are available for purchase and the other color choices are only available when you buy the kit. Tell me, what is wrong with that picture??? I don't want to stick a black or white zoom lense on a red camera body, but if I want to take pictures as the marketing info promotes, I have only two choices - and neither of the choices are ones I would pick. What was Nikon thinking? Apparently, the marketing department got ahead of the production department or they simply were not communicating. And, that makes the customer with a very undesirable decision: either forget about getting those long shots or pay the $250 to get some remarkable pictures using mix and match product colors.

Great Lens- VERY Poor Service This is a very nice Lens, but cant recommend due to very poor product support- Lens worked abut had a hairline crack when I brought it. I should have sent it back right away but did not because it worked fine. After about 6 months it started to not focus right. When I sent it in for repair they claimed impact damage (which it never had.) They then want to charge $695.00 to repair a lens that cost $249.00 brand new. John October 23, 2012

Answer: 
The new nikon1 lenses series - yes, that fore they are made. The old nikkor F series: that fore Nikon made an adapter, the FT1, which I guess make fit quite a lot - although with same details like not exactly the same functionality in autofocus as the native lenses. here you have a chart by nikon: http://www.nikonusa.com/en_US/o/WBqMZFjDl2eU0uluIvskYJxzlYg/PDF/Nikon_1_F_Mount-FT1_Compatibility_Chart.pdf

Answer: 
There are 65 current F mount NIKKOR lenses (as of Dec. 2011) that the FT-1 is compatible with. If you visit the product page, http://www.nikonusa.com/Nikon-Produ... there is a downloadable PDF that lists which lenses are compatible with the FT-1.

Answer: 
Why? If Nikon makes the camera in red, then it SHOULD make the lenses available for single purchase in the same colors. If I would have known this to be the case when I purchased the Nikon 1 in red, I would have either opted to buy the entire package or opted for another color that could be added to at a future date. Needless to say, I am very, very disappointed at this point because I want to have the same color camera and lense but Nikon does not offer it.

Answer: 
Assuming you consider 50mm to be "normal" on 35mm format, the equivalent Nikon 1 focal length is 18mm. The conversion factor is 2.7x.

Your product lineup for the Nikon 1 V1 shows only a neutral color filter. What about other filters? Since the camera is digital autofocus--but mirrorless, are circular filters still the rule?
