1 NIKKOR VR 30-110mm f/3.8-5.6
It is a feather-weight 70-300 mm equivalent that fits in your hand!
Having experienced the N1 V1 with the excellent wide-angle and 10-30 zoom lenses for a couple of weeks, I decided to purchase also he 30-110 mm zoom lens. I like the 30-110 mm zoom very much, it delivers sharp results with nice colors and good contrast. Apart from this, the strongest feature of this zoom lens is its really tiny size: it is a 70-300 mm equivalent that disappears in your hand. And it weighs almost nothing. The N1 system is simply a fantastic and very capable small camera system. Highly recommended.

Great lens for the Nikon 1 cameras
I bought this as the telephoto for the Nikon 1 camera since I also have the standard 10 to 30mm lens. This lens is fast focusing on this camera and gives excellent pictures at the 35mm equivalent of about 80mm to nearly 300mm. It has a maximum aperture of F/3.8 and focuses down to about a meter. I only wish that the color of the lens was the same as the color of my camera body, but that color does not appear to be available as a separate lens.

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.

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.
