Nikon Downtown Los Angeles - Street Shooting with the Nikon 1 6.7-13mm VR!

I recently picked up a used copy of the Nikon 1 6.7-13mm VR lens. I've been resisting buying this lens, but I finally caved in and found a copy of the lens in black (most used copies are silver). Anyways, I paired it with the J5 and found this combo to be pretty amazing. The VR works great, lens is sharp corner-to-corner and it's one of the most compact ultra wide angle zooms on the market. Too bad it's discontinued and totally hard to find for a reasonable price!

I took it out to downtown Los Angeles for a quick morning stroll, check it out!

Well done, Jonathan... both on acquiring the lens, and this great set. I like the B&W best, but thats just me :)
Thanks! I've passed on a few copies of the lens, either due to high price or wrong color! The 6.7-13mm VR is something special though and really starts to shine especially on the J5. It's a real shame Nikon killed the system before fully realizing it's potential. The closest lens to the 6.7-13mm VR is the Olympus 9-18mm for M43, but I think the Nikon is better overall. Now I'm getting paranoid if I should buy a backup lens and store it in the closet? 😁
