All the Best and Thank You, Miklos Miklos, I purchased both kits from B&H last December.  First the V1 and 10-30 and 30-110, and two weeks later after being smitten with the camera, a second kit with the PD 10-100, FT-1, etc..  Since then I've tested the lens thoroughly against the ...

Regarding IQ, I haven't come across a shootout. In an other discussion I was recommended to go for the older 1 NIKKOR VR 10-100mm f/4.5-5.6 PD-ZOOM. If you shoot video, that may be good advice.
