Pros: Very usable focal range, well-made, handles well, effective VR, good level of sharpness

Cons: Bit expensive

Opinion: I had used Nikkor 24-120mm's, the old D series and later 'G' f3.5-5.6 VR, on film and then FX D700. I was always at home with this focal range, but both these lenses had to be stopped down to get any decent results and reviews were always quite poor. This 16-85mm, for my DX D7000, is about same range and noticeably wider than say, 18-200mm and even a 17-50mm. But quality is always good, you can use with confidence and the lens just feels nice and right balance on this camera. Build quality is better than most consumer grade Nikons and inspires confidence, with no zoom creep. Distortion is not too bad either (a lot less than Nikon 18-200mm) and easily correctible. VR is effective and AF good enough too. Filters are 67mm, so polarisers not too big and expensive. For daylight travelling, I team this up with Nikkor 10-24mm and Tamron SP 70-300mm. For low-light I pack a Tamron SP 17-50mm f2.8 instead. Overall: Seriously good image quality and decent build and almost perfect zoom width/versus handling and image quality. A bit expensive and secondhand still at premium prices. If only the equivalent 24-120mm of same speed was of the same standard.

Pros: Build quality, versatility

Cons: a little dark

Opinion: Nikon house lens of undoubted construction quality. The feeling to the touch gives a feeling of indisputable reliability. Versatility is certainly a point in favor since it allows you to cover a rather important focal range, thus allowing you to range between different photographic genres. At the same time it has from its an absence of brightness (but on the other hand we are not talking about a fixed) that can make the nose twist, but this is contrasted with the presence of stabilization that therefore allows a wider maneuver on the shooting times. It may suffer from a slight back focus especially on some machine bodies (on my D7000 I warned this problem) to which you can overcome by calibrating the lens with the help of the reflex menu. Also recommended because once bought it will be difficult to get it out of the car.

Pros: Large focal excursion that allows you to be very versatile

Cons: Absolutely dark

Opinion: A lens that attracts for its enormous versatility: you can go from a wide angle 16mm to a almost 85mm canvas, which allows once inserted in the car not to take it off so easily. But in the end, its value becomes its flaw: it does not excel in much, it is more practical than performing, it does not have a particular yield and is decidedly dark. Finally it's quite heavy, which doesn't help.

Pros: Goal really everything to do you put it on the machine and you don't take it off anymore, the 16 mm really make a difference.

Cons: Nothing to say except for the lampshade too thin, to be fussy, even the slightly dark diaphragms that can be cheated with excellent stabilization.

Opinion: A really excellent lens in my opinion the best Nikon all-rounder lens on apsc. the 16-80 2.8, 4 does not have the same quality it costs almost double and is certainly more bulky and heavier, I use it on D7000 for several years especially when traveling or for family photos, once bought you can not do without it , in my opinion, is highly recommended.

Pros: Versatile

Cons: Brightness

Opinion: I also had it in mating at the D7000, it was still very good, now D7500-16-80 which of course is better. I always felt good, great to take on the road, but then to do some more consistent work and for a better definition I just went to 16-80 on 20.89 Mpx. The only thing unfriendly is the opening 3.5-5.6 too low, but I made so many shots printed then 30x45 on cotton paper and I'd say it holds well
