Nikon V1 + Zeiss 50/2

Don't, I repeat, don't, listen to the negative internet chatter regarding this little camera.  I am getting absolutely stunning B&W images from this little beast. The V1 is fast, quiet, easy to manually focus, and works brilliantly with the FT1 adapter.  Looking at color images, their is definitely some negative things going on, but since I am focusing on using this camera almost exlusively for B&W, those issues don't affect me.

Shooting with the 10/2,8 and the Zeiss 50/2 w/FT1 adapter, the images have a character that just really works.  While I don't like a ton of filters, especially when I get sharp images, this Nik Film Noir caught my eye.  The capture was of my grandson this past weekend.
