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: Flexible in use, an all-rounder; good sharpness on my D90. Great VR system

Cons: In the backlight it is not the best (but just put the hood supplied and things improve); brightness not excellent at long focal lengths, but it is not such a big problem

Opinion: Lens that I use practically always on my trusty D90. Shooting especially landscapes having an equivalent 24mm (focal length that I love) for me is the best. The focal range won't be at the highest level, but it's never been a problem for my favorite genre. Combined with two fixed some the 35mm 2.8 DX and the old 50mm 1.8 FF (if and when I want to use more "noble" lenses) covers all the situations in which I personally can run into. Robust and light has "almost" never disappointed me, even if you have to learn to know its limits especially in the backlight (use the hood supplied). Fully satisfied.

Pros: Very easy judgment: splendid goal. Excellent colors, super sharpness and remarkable robustness of construction.

Cons: To say nothing, even if it is a dated perspective. Brightness is certainly not the strong point, but you have to overcome the inconvenience.

Opinion: As with other discontinued lenses, this one also proves to be nothing short of exceptional. The price of the used is certainly affordable and it is worth having it at hand, because it is useful on many occasions. I use it with the Nikon D 300s, superlative camera and with the D 200, another truly inimitable example of the Nikon park and the yield is certainly excellent.

Pros: crazy sharpness, lightness and construction

Cons: a little flare... the 24 85 ff is better from this point of view, the colors are very "digital" and sharp but it seems obvious to me XD

Opinion: it is a lens that for panoramas from the maximum because it opens to 16mm and therefore would be a 24 ff. It has a sharpness that few others have and I like it because it is quite light. Even for portraits it returns natural and not too artificial colors, the only thing perhaps the contrast is power! for apsc you don't find optics like that, then the rest does the situation and your eye :) Surrender as I said does not have that pasty effect or with personality , it is a neutral and sharp yield.

Pros: Robust, crisp, versatile

Cons: not very bright

Opinion: The best Nikon (in value for money) for photojournalism and reportage. Once in the car allow you to move from the landscape to the portrait with extreme ease. The VR system is great and photos moved it is very difficult to take. Of course, due to its low brightness, it is not suitable for taking specialized photographs in which a very limited depth of field is required. But, in normal life, how many times have we really needed this possibility? If you find it at a reasonable price take it without delay, you will not regret it, just look at the photos published below by its owners ...
