Meanwhile, back in the mountains...

There's a gorgeous bird you don't recognize, warbling in a tree far off to the side of your hiking trail. You'd love to look it up, but you can't make it out clearly... wait. Your Nikon 1 has a long-reach 30-110mm lens on the front. With its sophisticated vibration reduction and an almost 300mm (35mm equivalent) magnification, you'll fill the frame and add another exotic sighting to your list.

A telephoto zoom lens like this one is a great addition to your outdoor kit bag. At its widest, it makes an elegant portrait lens, as its aperture design makes for smooth, rounded blurs that add dimension to your chosen subject. And at full extension, you've got the ability to roam far afield, bringing your surroundings closer to you for extended examination.

Legendary Nikkor optics and construction are standard, of course. Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass and an exclusive multi-layer coating process ensure sharpness and rock-solid color fidelity for all your images.
