The next lens in our ‘unofficial’ Nikon 1 trinity is the 1 Nikon 6.7-13 mm f/3.5-5.6. This provides users with an equivalent field-of-view of 18-35 mm when compared to a full frame camera.
As would be expected this lens is terrific for travel, landscape and architectural photography with the Nikon 1 system.
I’ve found it to be one of the sharpest Nikon 1 lenses available, as well as rendering very pleasing colours.
This is a very handy lens to use for travel photography, especially when visiting ancient ruins. When using the wide end of the zoom you can expect some significant distortion but this is easily corrected in post using perspective control software.
It also shines as a wide angle zoom used for street photography in a variety of locales.
Photographers who work with real estate agents would appreciate the focal length range of this lens and its excellent VR.
The Nikon 1 6.7-13 mm f/3.5-5.6 is one of those lenses that you may not use as much as the 10-100 mm, but when needed it will do an excellent job time and time again.
The Nikon 1 6.7-13 mm f/3.5-5.6 retails for about $550 in Canada.
