This lens is not about the numbers.

  • Excerpt: This might just be the most overlooked lens in Nikon's DX line-up. When shopping around, I saw a lot of criticism online for the lack of zoom range and high price. This lens is not about the numbers, but all about image quality while offering a zoom range that covers 90% of what most of us actually need. It's also weather sealed, well built, and focuses fast.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Image Quality, Low Ca's, Reliable, Sharp

Excellent all around lens

  • Excerpt: Been using the 16-85 for about a year now. In almost all aspects, it's the best all-in-one lens for non pro DX. Range - 16 offers a pretty wide angle. Great for your "squeeze it all in" landscape snaps, but more importantly lets you get close and personal with your subject creating interesting perspectives in your photographs. The far end at 85mm is very convenient for a close tele and portraits.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Reliable

Great Universal Lens

  • Excerpt: Great lens, when you only have room for, or space for one lens with/on the camera. Covers most situations; close to moderatly "far" with convenience of "same lens". Very sharp and bright.

great walk around lens

  • Summary: it would be nice with a wider aperture, it would also cost more and surely be heavier than I want to carry. The VR handles the low light, so in actuality, depth of field might be the lone disadvantage .

Great lens for DX

  • Excerpt: I do mostly landscape and 'travel' photography. I bought a Nikon 18-200 'walk around' lens, which has a useful range, but just wasn't as sharp as I wanted. I bought the 16-85mm lens, and performed some testing with it. It's much sharper than the 18-200, and the range is very useful for landscape and travel photography. Together with my Nikon 10-24mm and 70-300 VR II, along with my 85mm macro, I have all the range I need for pretty much any occasion.
