I had been waiting for an updated V-series camera to be launched that featured the new 20.8 MP BSI sensor that is in the J5. Since an updated V-series camera will likely be delayed until at least February 2017 I thought it was a good time to purchase a J5.

This article features a few images I took during a morning walk with the Nikon 1 J5 and 1 Nikon 10-100 mm f/4-5.6 zoom lens.
