Four stars only because I'm having trouble with the lens shade and cap. The shade does not go back on easily either in the sade position or the reserve position. In fact, one time it went completely over the attachment threads onto the lens itself.

That said, the lens is great. Haven't tried it inside in a well lit situation, but outside it delivers excellent quality images like all the other Nikon 1 lenses.

I've used the lense for my interior photo shoot of flats and landscapes and I have to say I am so impressed with its wide angle performance, auto focus is great even in low-light! I am happy with its sharp results specially if you partner the shot by a speedlight (SB-N5 or SB-N7) This is one of the major factor that photographers are looking from a camera in general categories. The only thing I didn't like about it is the price! Common Nikon, I used to know you guys are reasonable in prices but this time I have to say ouch, this applies to most accessories relevant to the Nikon 1 Class.

But the rest are ok.

    Comments about 1 NIKKOR 6.7-13mm f/3.5-5.6 VR Lens (Silver):

    The lens works great on my J5. No problems of any kind. Wide angle at 6.7 has distortion (as expected) that is easily corrected in DxO (using ViewPoint).

      For those on the fence, consider that this optical design does not require the more complex retrofocus optics that DSLR`s demand, yet this lens is a goodie bag of ed and aspherical elements...

          Perhaps the newest and most refined (6 exotic elements) of Nikon 's WA's, mine delivers pro results across it's range. Add VR and a light, compact form factor and I've got the buy of the year...

              Comments about 1 NIKKOR 6.7-13mm f/3.5-5.6 VR Lens (Black):

              This is one of the sharpest ultra wide angles I've used. I'm not a pixel peeper but from a practical photography perspective this lens is right up there with the 16-35 f4 on my D800. Build quality is excellent. The VR allows ridiculous hand held shots (1/4 second is easy).

              This lens plus the 18.5, 32, and 30-110 are really all you need for a complete Nikon 1 package. Of course an FT1 is also very useful sometimes to get those crazy long shots.

                  Comments about 1 NIKKOR 6.7-13mm f/3.5-5.6 VR Lens (Black):

                  This lens is equivalent to an 18-35mm zoom in a 35mm system. This is a perfect range for narrow city streets or tight canyons and mountain vistas. The lens has the solid feel and weight of a quality product. It would be nice if it was a stop faster, but then it would be much larger, heavier, and costlier.
