Not a lens for an enthusiast. I got this lens bundled with a new Nikon 1 V3. The V3 is arguably the "high-end" of the Nikon 1 line, but this lens is definitely not a good match for it. It's an amateur's lens at best, and not even very good in that category. Two major complaints: (1) the power zoom feature is very difficult to control. It responds with a depressingly long time-lag, and almost always overshoots the intended mark, making it hard to compose and shoot quickly. (2) The lens does not accommodate filters!!! What is a filter-less lens doing paired with a higher-end camera? This is a lens that was built down to a price, and it shows. If this lens makes you happy, you don't need a Nikon 1. You need a cheap point-and-shoot camera. July 25, 2014

I assume that there is a possibility for attaching, e.g., a polarizing filter, but see no reference to filters or filter size in the specs about this lens.

This is much better size than the AW 11-27.5 lens. Why can't you make this in an AW version? I would buy it in a second!

I just received my new Nikon 1 V3 and this lens. I don't see any threads to attach a filter. I'd like to attach a polarizing filter, and occasionally an ND filter. Please advise! I believe the response to the previous post referenced a different lens.
