Pros:valid for all occasions, high general quality, nano cristal.
Cons:of course the price, but quality costs, and applies to a lifetime.
Opinion:for me that I love to shoot landscapes, villages, villages, it is the maximum, I also own the 10/24, another tank nikon, another thousand euros in nital, but as they say in manythe quality you pay, but it is forever. lens that works well at almost all the focal points, at 16 suffers a little but always remains extremely valid, if it happens used is to be taken on the fly.
Opinion:I bought it on the Asian online market (where the price is more humane than Italy) to replace the 18-55 kit lens of my D5500. This excellent 16-80 is a bit wasted compared to the camera body I have, but in view of a future upgrade to D7500 I wanted to take it. I Agree with the merits already mentioned by others and I am not here to repeat them. With My D5500 Maybe I can not pull out the best that this optics can give but I must admit that the "modest" 18-55 of the kit beats well in front of the Big Brother. The differences are there (of course for the better for 16-80) but the little guy makes his figure. Of This 16-80 I really like the color rendition, the sharpness, the stabilization. The Hood is very bulky; I took an alternative rubber lens hood (not bad). The Nittal price list is in my opinion out of my mind, while the about €600 online are tailored to the quality. A great all-do.

Pros:Focal excursion, VR, good sharpness.
Opinion:Taken in kit with the d500 with which it works fine autofocus fast and precise very efficient the 16 mm VR I took pictures freehand at 0.4 seconds without movement. It distorts maybe a little too much to 16mm better keep the camera in the bubble. Apart from the oversized hood it is compact and light. Finally the price sore note over a thousand euros nital list is meaningless, in kits with the camera costs much less, until some time ago it was rare to find used, but lately they find enough and you bring home a good all to do. With the price of the new instead there is better in the universals.
Opinion:I bought this lens mainly to replace the already excellent 16-85. Right from the start I noticed a distinct difference. Much sharper at all focal, fast in focus and in my opinion produces raw more workable. I fully share the choice made by Nikon to work with plastic materials that make it light and compact. For me it was crucial since I don't like to go around with the ballast. Despite these materials the impression it is from me is of general robustness and good solidity. The additional brightness compared to the 16-85 is felt throughout, allowing shots in unreachable conditions with the latter. Let's not talk about stabilization: wonderful. I have taken firm and sharp pictures at 1/15 Freehand. Never succeeded before. The only thing I don't like is the size of the lens hood, though of course there will be a reason. I'm used to reverse it on the lens to have it always available to need. In This resting position, however, it is not possible to get to the zoom ring and therefore it is mandatory to remove it all the times. On the price I do not pronounce although I think it is not so disproportionate to the overall quality (I mean the online offers and not the full price list).
Cons:Distortion over 16 mm (I believe higher than the same focal as the 16-85 had previously)
Opinion:Since about 3 weeks I have taken D7500 + 16-80 and I am trying to understand the rendering of the system. I ask the community what do you think of the focus at 16 mm in Live view, I'm doing so for photos on tripod to which I request precision and is not convincing me much. Try to photograph the stones of a trullo or a dry wall in a situation of diffused light, maybe backlight, and then give me feedback. I am not so satisfied. I do not by visual satisfaction just the optimization phase in live view of the fire, I do not spout the right sharpness
