  • Excerpt: Back in August 2007, when Nikon introduced the D3, their first full-35mm-frame, FX format digital SLR , they simultaneously updated five lenses: two shorter constant f/2.8 zooms: 14-24mm and 24-70mm and three 400, 500, and 600mm super telephotos with AF-S and vibration reduction (VR). Since then, Nikon has updated many additional lenses for the FX format: 70-200mm/2.8 zoom, 300mm/2.8, three tilt-shift PC-E lenses, and a 50mm/1.4 AF-S, to name a few.

  • Summary: Nikon's 16-35mm F4 VR is the first true wide zoom to sport optical stabilization, but thankfully doesn't compromise imaging performance to do so. It's an excellent choice particularly for full frame users, but you do need to be aware of its pronounced barrel distortion at wide angle.
  • Pros: Very high image quality on both DX and FX formats, Excellent build quality with dust and moisture sealing, Highly effective optical image stabilization, Fast, silent autofocus with manual override
  • Cons: Huge barrel distortion at 16mm on FX cameras, Relatively big and heavy for its class (larger than many F2.8 wideangle zooms), Slightly inelegant flare handling

REVIEW: Nikon AF-S 16-35mm F/4G ED VR

photodo
7 October 2010
  • Conclusion: Overall this lens is a very good all round performer being capable of producing images of very good resolution, especially in the centre of the frame where the performance is excellent up to 24mm and very good thereafter. The performance in this respect isn't as stunning as the 14-24mm lens as I'd hoped, but is still very respectable indeed. This lens' weaknesses are falloff and distortion.
  • Pros: Good all-round resolution performance, Lighter than f/2.8 lenses, Accepts 77mm filters, Vibration Reduction
  • Cons: Barrel distortion at 16mm, Vignetting at 16mm

  • Excerpt: While I hope to create a full Nikon 16-35mm f/4G AF-S VR Lens evaluation, my first priority is to include results from this lens in the lens comparison tools. This page currently exists because it is required by the database and content management systems for the posting of those standard test results.

Nikkor AF-S 16-35mm f/4 G ED VR (DX) - Review / Lab Test Report

photozone.de
5 November 2010
  • Conclusion: On our 16 MP DX test camera, the Nikkor AF-S 16-35 VR is a very good wide-angle to normal zoom lens that shows very good to excellent resolution in the center and very good border and corner sharpness at short and medium focal length settings. Only at 35mm the lens struggles on the high pixel density of the D7000's DX sensor. Distortion is well under control, the same is true for vignetting and chromatic aberrations.

Nikkor AF-S 16-35mm f/4 G ED VR (DX) - Review / Lab Test Report

15 March 2010
  • Conclusion: On our 10 MP DX test camera, the Nikkor AF-S 16-35 VR is a very good wide-angle to normal zoom lens that shows excellent resolution in the center and very good border and corner sharpness at most focal length and aperture settings. Distortion is well under control, the same is true for vignetting and chromatic aberrations. The build quality is excellent and in line with other professional Nikkor lenses. So, in summary, it's a very attractive lens for DX shooters.

1 March 2010
  • Summary: Nikon's first ultra wide-angle 16-35mm FX-format compatible zoom lens with built-in vibration reduction technology.The AF-S Nikkor 16-35mm f/4G ED VR lens provides a lower-priced (though still expensive) alternative to Nikon's other wide zoom lenses, which are a full f-stop faster.
  • Pros: You want an ultra-wide zoom lens for landscape or architectural photography., You require professional performance and build quality at an affordable price., You want high resolution at all focal lengths, along with good flatness of field., You'd like built-in image stabilisation., You'd like a lens that requires no readjustment when you fit polarisers and graduated filters. Don't buy this lens if :, You need close focusing and macro capabilities., You need a general-...

  • Excerpt: At the 16mm end of the zoom range, the Nikon AF-S 16-35mm f/4G ED VR lens has an angle of view of 107° when mounted to an FX or film body. At this setting, the lens suffers from obvious barrel distortion, which is easily noticed even in real-world shots featuring geometric patterns.
