Wrong Adapter ring

 

I hate having to deal with returns. I didn't want to wait two months to use this lens.

Looks nice except I can't mount it on my Nikon 1 V1 because the mounting ring they include is for SLR Nikons. Works fine on my D50 but I really wanted to use it on the Nikon 1

Wrong size adapter ring

Stay away from this lens that takes blurry pictures

 

I compared this to my Tamron 18-270mm zoom, and if you take pictures with Tamron at 270mm and recrop them to give you a picture equvalent to 500mm, it was still sharper than the images this lens took. Tamron also has the image stabilization, of course....

Reach

Terrible image quality. Even placing my camera on a tripod, using a fast shutter speed, and meticulous focusing could not save this lens
