Perfect marriage with a D7100

  • Excerpt: For me this is the perfect lens. Its a big upgrade over the 18-70mm that I had paired with a D5000. I'm using this lens with a D7100 and the combination of the two is a giant leap in flexibility.
  • Pros: Easy To Use

Excellent Lens

  • Excerpt: This is my second copy of this lens. I used the old one for about 80% of my shots over the last few years on a D200 and D7100. The old one was damaged, and I figured it made more sense, given the price, to buy a new one rather than repair it. The 24 Mp on the D7100 provides a good test of sharpness.
  • Pros: Durable, Sharp
  • Cons: Heavy

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...

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...

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.
