Thom's Mini Review: I find this lens awkward in practice. It's big and bulky on the small Nikon 1 bodies and seems to have been designed primarily for videographers that like to zoom (no zoom ring, only a power zoom rocker). Optically, it doesn't match the 30-110mm in the overlapping range. I'd personally rather carry the two-lens 10-30mm/30-110mm combination and change lenses than use the 10-100mm. But the new 10-100mm without power zoom has now made this even more obvious: if you want an all-in-one solution, that other 10-100mm is the one to purchase as it is smaller, handles better, and sharper than this one.
