One famous photographer once said, to make an appealing photographs, we have to think like a bug, getting close and into the scenery. The long reach of the V1 with 80-400mm and 105mm gave me just that. Although I was on the solid ground by the pond, looking through the eyepiece, it gave me the feeling that I was a little bug flying in between the flowers, Although, I would not get too close to the frog!
The take home massage from this exercise is that V1 is capable of delivering very high quality image. I have all the V1 lenses, they can give images as good as smart phone, which is quite useful. However, in order to really realize V1's potential, we have to use the lowest ISO possible and FT1 adapter with the much better FX or DX format lenses.
