On a Nikon 1 series camera F mount Nikkor lenses have a crop factor of 2.7x effectively increasing the focal length by 2.7 times. Currently there are more than 60 different Nikkor lenses that can be used via the FT1 Mount Adapter on a Nikon 1 series camera.
Barring a select few lenses such as the AI Nikkor 20mm f/2.8, PC-E NIKKOR 24mm f/3.5D ED, the AI Nikkor 24mm f/2.8 and the non-AI lenses, teleconverters, and auto extension rings the remaining lenses including DX lenses can be used with the FT1 Mount Adapter.
Auto-focusing capabilities are also retailed with the use of the FT1 Mount Adapter however only limited to the AF-S lenses. All other lenses will however need to be précised focused manually.
