Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 16-35mm f/4G ED VR
4 Star Review  productwiki.com - Mar 16, 2011

The Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 16-35mm f/4G ED VR is a high performance wide-angle zoom lens. This is the first ultra-wide-angle lens to feature optical image stabilization, in this case allowing up to 4 shutter speeds slower than what would otherwise be possible, creating a noticeably sharper image. A Nano Crystal Coat reduces ghosting and interior flare, and 3 Aspherical Lens Elements work with 2 Extra-low Dispersion (ED) Elements to reduce coma and other types of aberration. A rounded 9-blade diaphragm is used to create a narrow depth of field, bringing the subject into sharp focus and applying a natural blur to the background. The internal focus (IF) is set by a Silent Wave Motor (SWM), allowing fast and accurate autofocus with optional manual focus. Features Focal Length: 16-35 mm Aperture: f/4 - f/22 Angle of View: 44 - 83 deg (DX-format), 63 - 107 deg (FX-format) VR (Vibration Reduction) Image Stabilization Rounded 9 ... PROS: (1) professional build quality - magnesium alloy body, weather sealed, well dampened zoom/focus rings (2) fairly flat front lens, internal focusing - no weird filter restrictions, less danger of bumping and breaking your lens (3) lens hood is included with the lens - increases contrast, reduces flare, good protection (4) AF-S drive SWM - fast and silent AF (5) VR II image stabilization ... CONS: (1) visible vignetting at 16mm even stopped down significantly (2) optical qualities arent outstanding - could be better considering its a professional lens (eg/ sharpness in the extremes)

Very nice for the price
5 Star Review   By Big guy on Adorama - Nov 15, 2013    ( See more reviews from Adorama )

Great for casual to serious wide angle shots in spite of distortion at the wider settings. It's a bit larger and heavier than lenses that I am used to but when switching to full frame format on the D600 this was worth it. It's very sharp and focuses fast.

5 Star Review   By Jeff in P'burg on Adorama - Oct 30, 2013    ( See more reviews from Adorama )

I use this for beach and forest landscape photography in Northern Michigan. Coupled with an D800e and paired with the Nikkor 70-300mm and 85mm lens there is not much the group can't handle.

5 Star Review   By larryld on Adorama - Oct 15, 2013    ( See more reviews from Adorama )

It's a perfect compliment to my 70-200, I had been using my 50, this lens gives me more flexibility... I was a little worried about the f4, my other lens are 2.8 and 1.4; but, since I use it outdoors or with flash the f4 is fine.

Superb ultra wide angle lens for FX
5 Star Review   By NikkorGoldRing on Adorama - Oct 15, 2013    ( See more reviews from Adorama )

If you want to shoot landscapes, architecture, group people shots, street photography where you require a wide perspective without having to step back to take it all in, this is the lens for you. I wouldn't use it for close up portraiture due to it distorting faces unless it's a look you're going for. It's extreme sharp from edge to edge, corner to corner by F8 but still impressive at larger apertures. Having the VR on this lens DOES make a difference in low light especially if you're walking around shooting static subjects. The only real con is distortion at 16-20mm which can be mostly corrected in post if you have more recent versions of photoshop, lightroom, or other higher end photo editing software with lens profiles / distortion correcting features. Although, all ultra wide angle lenses have distortion to some degree even the much more expensive top of the line Nikon 14-24. I bought this lens more for landscapes and the ease and plethora of options to attach filters whereas the 14-24 is limited and much more pricier.

Exceptionally sharp lens
5 Star Review   By Patches on Adorama - Sep 11, 2013    ( See more reviews from Adorama )

Review of new Nikkor 16-35 mm f/4 ultra-wide zoom lens. I have been using Nikon cameras, Nikkor lenses and scientific instruments for over 35 years. I felt really bad when I was told that I no longer could use my favorite Kodak slide film. Gradually, Nikon came through and they help me attach one Coolpix and a second Nikon digital camera to the microscopes via F-mount attachment. The images were far beyond anything I had obtained with slide film. February 9th, 2012 I pre-order the Nikon D800 with a 24- 120 mm f/4 zoom lens. I received them in late June 2012. Almost instantly I was getting images that I had not seen before. Then I saw and I read that the D800 36Mb sensor will be exceptionally demanding on lenses. As much as I like the 24-120 mm f/4 zoom lens, I felt that I needed a sharper lens than that. I started searching for a wide zoom lens and I considered many reviews. However, the review by Mr. Ken Rockwell "sold me" to the Nikkor 16-35 mm f/4 ultra-wide zoom lens. Immediately after I received it from Adorama I attached a Tiffen 77mm Digital HT UV Haze 86 glass filter and soon afterwards I determined that the "sweet spot" with this lens is at f/8 so; I started taking pictures in and out of my house up in the St. Gabriel - Angeles National Forest, north of Los Angeles city, CA. I am extremely pleased with the images at all focal lengths from 16 mm to 35 mm. I think that Nikon Inc., has done a near perfect zoom lens for the high end Nikon bodies. Bravo! Nikon. This zoom lens is worth every penny of its cost. I am very impressed. I have taken pictures of my grandkids under many lighting conditions and their smiling faces are fantastic. I love the images! Next month I am heading to spend some time at King's Canyon with the fall foliage alongside the Kern River waterfalls. After that I am headed to the Painted Desert and the Monument Valley. I hope to get there after the first snow has fallen. I am looking forward to retiring soon and getting my photo skills reaching their limits well below of the capabilities of the D800 and the 16-35 mm zoom lens. I highly recommend this zoom lens and naturally, the D800. Lastly, I am looking forward when Nikon releases their new camera body with a button ON or OFF the AA filter. That will be fantastic, I believe.

Great Lens
5 Star Review   By lcarver on Adorama - Sep 3, 2013    ( See more reviews from Adorama )

I was using an older 18-35MM, f3.5-4.5) Nikon lens and thought I could get better images with this lens and boy was I right. This lens is worth every penny of the price. I'm not a fan of more weight (the other lens was much lighter) but the increase in quality is worth a few more ounces. I use this lens as my carry around because I find more shots present the need for wide angle. I also have the 70-200mm, f4.0. with these 2 lenses I seldom carry any of my other lenses unless I have a specific need for them.

Great lens
5 Star Review   By DIP1 on Adorama - Mar 7, 2011    ( See more reviews from Adorama )

I bought this lens when it first came out. I was a little concerned about low light usage but the VRII seems to more than make up for the f3.5. I have recently ordered a tripod and can not wait to try this lens on some landscapes. [...]

Great lens for an f4, the 3 stops you get from VRII can save your shot in low light. Sharp across the frame. Great lens

Great wide angle for FX
4 Star Review   By WT on Adorama - Jul 26, 2010    ( See more reviews from Adorama )

IMO, the best compromise wide angle zoom for FX: takes filters, is reasonably compact, solid construction, more attractively priced than the 14-24. For my purposes, VR is a reasonable tradeoff for the 1-stop loss vs. a 2.8. Some visible distortion at 16mm
