Summary: This is my primary lens for about 75% of all of my photos. I use it mostly for weddings. You don't get second chances to shoot them, so you want a lens that covers a good range to adapt to situations in front of you. The 16-85 mm range gives you the flexibility to handle this fast paced environment without having to switch lenses or cameras. The lens will handle everything from wide landscapes to intimate portraits with a nice bokeh.
Summary: good glass Sharp, and well done.Best for crop cameras. Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

Summary: Ordered this lens and have no regrets. For a zoom lens, the image quality is sharp; sharper than my previous kit lens and omnizoom. The wide angle 16mm is certainly appreciated when I do landscape, and the 85mm allows me to do portrait work well. This is now my walkaround lens of choice. Pair up with a 35 mm prime and the 55-200 mm solid kit lens and you are pretty well set. There's a reason Nikon has this lens priced so high!
Best all around mid priced lens for DX Nikon cameras.

Summary: I am very happy with my purchase of the Nikon AF-S 16mm-85mm F/3.5-5.6 ED DX VR lens...That was mouthful! This lens offers something very important, a 2mm wider angle than some of the other lenses like the 18-200mm, 18-105mm, 18-55mm, 18-55mm kit lens, and the very expensive 17-55mm F 2.8 lens. I would not have spent full price on a new one ($629.95-$659.95 average), but recieved an almost new, near mint lens on Ebay for $455.00. and free shipping.
Awesome doesn't do this lens justice. Great value used or new - BUY ONE!!!

Summary: Even if you can purchase a used lens do so. I have a number of Nikon lens with I use on my D-80, D-90 and D-7000. For a general lens that gives you excellent focus and outstanding photos this is the lens. I tested this lens up close, in day light, in darkness, in areas that other lens could not produce the photo that this lens has been able to accomplish. Truly a excellent lens for the newbe or the professional.
