I've only had the recently released 1 NIKKOR 6.7-13mm f/3.5-5.6 lens a couple days with just a little time to give it a detailed work out. First impressions are very, very good. I love wide angle perspective and until this lens was released, I was frustrated by my V1. Knowing my shooting style, I expect this lens will be frequently used and may become my primary zoom. This lens is roughly equivalent to a 18-35mm SLR lens and has a shiny rather than flat or matte finish. It feels like a professional grade lens. Below are a couple sample images.
