Nikon’s 1 series cameras adopts a smaller 1-inch type sensor which allows the firm to offer lenses that are substantially more compact than most rivals with mirrorless offerings. In fact with the exception of the new 32mm f/1.2, the lenses are so small they actually lack focus rings. Manual focus is still possible, however, it’s just that control is made via the camera body. The small sensor also accounts for the shorter than usual focal lengths on offer. The new $500 image stabilized 1 Nikkor 6.7-13mm f/3.5-5.6 VR and $187 18.5mm f/1.8 have the equivalent angle of view in full-frame 35mm terms to a very useful 18-35mm and 50mm, respectively.
