Nikon Australia has announced the recommended retail prices for its Nikon 1 mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera system.

Different varieties of the Nikon 1 will be available Australia-wide on October 20. Nikon Australia has said that three kits will be sold:

Nikon 1 J1, with 10mm f/2.8 prime lens kit: $899 RRP

Nikon 1 J1, with 10-30mm and 30-110mm twin zoom lens kit: $1099 RRP

Nikon 1 V1, with 10-30mm and 30-110mm twin zoom lens kit: $1399 RRP

However, it is not clear yet whether any single zoom lens kits (with the 10-30mm 'standard' zoom lens) will be available for either the Nikon 1 J1 or V1, or whether the Nikon 1 V1 will be sold in a bundle with the 10mm f/2.8 prime lens. Similarly, no pricing has been announced for a body-only package — it is not known whether this will be offered. No pricing for Nikon's super-zoom 10-100mm lens was included with Nikon's release today.

Nikon's current announcement forces consumers to buy either a single prime lens with the entry level J1 — confusing when prime lenses are generally considered less versatile and beginner-friendly than zoom lenses — or a comparatively expensive twin lens kit. Confusingly, there is no prime lens kit offered with the enthusiast-grade V1, only the expensive twin lens option.

Representatives of Nikon Australia did not respond to a request for clarification by the time of publication.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
