Along with the J2, Nikon has also released the new CX-format compatible 1 NIKKOR 11-27.5mm f/3.5-5.6 2.5x standard zoom lens, which covers the 11–27.5-mm range of focal lengths (angle of view equivalent to 30–74-mm in 35-mm  format). The 1 NIKKOR 11-27.5mm f/3.5-5.6 is smaller and lighter than the current 1 NIKKOR VR 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6 standard zoom lens for greater portability. It will be available in the same six colors as the J2, allowing for an integrated look for the camera and lens.
Nikon 1 cameras offer superior performance, as well as new forms of imaging expression and the enjoyment that goes along with them. In addition to the high-speed performance achieved with an advanced hybrid AF system that ensures certain capture of the intended subject under a wide variety of circumstances, Nikon 1 cameras are also equipped with Nikon's exclusive compact and lightweight Nikon 1 lens mount. The camera also enables new imaging experiences with features such as Motion Snapshot and Smart Photo Selector.
In addition to the performance achieved with previous Nikon 1 cameras, the J2 also offers a number of improvements in terms of design and usability. An elegant design utilizing metal has been adopted, and the number of colors in which the camera is available has been increased to six, allowing users better expression of personal preference and individuality. A new Creative mode has been added to the four original shooting modes available on the mode dial, allowing for easy specification of the desired shooting scenes from a total of eight options, including Night Landscape. What's more, the J2 can be turned on or off using the retractable lens barrel button on applicable lenses, and monitor visibility has been increased with adoption of a high-resolution, 921k-dot LCD monitor.
