Nikon 16-85mm f/3.5-5.6G AF-S VR DX

Available Today

The 16-85 is a compact walkaround zoom for DX sensor cameras. It features second generation vibration reduction, offering 4 stops of stabilization. This is a G type lens with aperture set electronically from the camera and features extra low dispersion glass elements, silent wave motor, and a 7 blade, rounded diaphragm.

The 16-35 makes a great general purpose, walkaround lens, especially for outdoor use.

There are some great Nikon lenses for DX shooters and I think this is one. Yes, it’s a variable aperture lens, and at f/5.6 has some limitations. But it’s sharp as a tack and has excellent 4 stop VR in a reasonably small size with a nonrotating front element so CP filters work perfectly.

If you’re looking for a high-quality walk-around lens at a reasonable price, you really won’t do any better than this.
