"I always find the little Sonys, Olympus', Nikon 1s feel like doll cameras in my hands (no offense to the happy owners ^_^ ). I don't think I'd use it as a portrait lens (70 Ã— 2.6 = 182 mm equiv., usually I prefer 85 or 105 mm)."
Yes, the J5 is tiny. But you know, for me it's all about what it is that I am trying to do. I could be wrong but I am not aware of ANY - system FX, DX, CX, 4/3rd - that can give an effective 1000mm reach that is portable, affordable and decent quality.
I say 1000mm because I specifically got the J5 so that with a bit of cropping 810mm easily becomes 1000mm with at least 10MP to play with.
Here are a couple more shots with the 70-300mm CX on the V1. The portrait is at 300mm!
As for the 200-500mm lens, I think it will be a big hit but I think that for most people they will end up just leaving it at home because of it's weight and size.
