From THK Photo Products, Inc. / Kenko:
 
New KENKO LENS2SCOPE Adapter
 
Kenko LENS2SCOPE Adapter
 
The new KENKO LENS2SCOPE adapter is an accessory that can change any lens into a spotting scope. The LENS2SCOPE adapter's light-weight composite body houses a high quality roof prism, optics and an eyepiece just like a traditional spotting scope. When the lens is attached it becomes a spotting scope to use for viewing. The lens mount and housing for the optics are made from metal while some external barrels are polycarbonate.
 
The optics in the LENS2SCOPE magnify the image by a factor of 10x so that a 100mm lens would have the same magnification as a 1,000mm lens when viewing. Focus is easily achieved by using the lens' manual focus ring.
 
There are two versions of the LENS2SCOPE, a straight eyepiece (pictured) and a version where the eyepiece is angled up. They are both available in Canon EOS, Nikon, Pentax and Sony.
 
The LENS2SCOPE has a removable tripod adapter for mounting onto a tripod for more comfortable viewing for extended periods of time.
 
This small accessory comes with its own carrying case and takes up about as much room in a camera bag as a normal lens.

Nikon has posted version 1.10 firmware for the 1 J1 and 1 V1:
 
Nikon 1 J1 1.10: USA | Europe
Nikon 1 V1 1.10: USA | Europe
 
Modifications enabled with this firmware upgrade
 
Support for the Mount Adapter FT1 has been added. The FT1 enables the use of Nikon F-mount NIKKOR lenses with the J1. Primary specifications are as follows:

  • Autofocusing is possible when AF-S lenses are used. However, focus mode must be set to AF-S (Single AF) and AF-area mode is fixed at Single-point with only the center focus point used.
  • The focus indicator (range finder) can be used with CPU lenses.
  • [P], [S], [A], and [M] exposure modes can be used with CPU lenses.
  • [A] and [M] exposure modes can be used with non-CPU lenses. Aperture is specified using the aperture ring on the lens.
  • Vibration reduction (VR) functions when VR lenses are used. Enable vibration reduction, or specify a setting, using switches on the lens.
  • Shooting in Motion Snapshot mode is only possible when focus has been acquired with an AF-S lens.
  • The Smart Photo Selector function cannot be used.

A Pixel mapping item has been added to the setup menu. Use this feature when unexpected bright spots are recorded in images. Please see the PDF addenda below.
