1 NIKKOR 11-27.5mm f/3.5-5.6 5 5 1 1
Very small and very sharp Despite the fact that this lens has no VR, the images it creates on the the V1 and V2 look sharper than my old 10-30mm. It's also smaller and lighter. The difference in focal length compared to the 10-30 is small enough to be ignored. January 5, 2013
