  • 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).

Nikon AF-S Nikkor 16-35mm f/4G ED VR

PC Magazine

  • Conclusion: The Nikon AF-S Nikkor 16-35mm f/4G ED VR lens can shoot images at dramatic wide angles, but it needs to be stopped down for edge-to-edge crispness.
  • Pros: Good center sharpness. Optically stabilized design. Ultra-wide field of view.
  • Cons: Noticeable distortion at 16mm. Soft edges at wider apertures.

  • 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

  • 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.
  • 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

  • Summary: Overall this is a fantastic lens that deserves to be taken very seriously. Admittedly this is probably the test sample’s first review and it is currently in pristine condition so the results are likely to be the best possible figures, but that fact cannot detract from a truly stunning performance.
  • Pros: Stunning optical quality
  • Cons: Slippery barrel finish

  • Excerpt: When you talk about lenses these days you always have to bring in the multiplication factor, especially when you have a lens that fits comfortably on both so-called full-frame and APS-C sensor cameras.

  • Excerpt: The first specimen of the Nikkor AF-S 16–35 mm f/4G ED VR fell into my hands soon after its launch, already in 2010. Although I gathered all testing material I couldn’t analyze it properly because there was always something more pressing to do. In the meantime I had to return the lens.

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

photozone.de
9 January 2011
  • Conclusion: For DX only usage, however, it faces some serious competition by Nikon's own AF-S DX 16-85 VR lens. While the DX lens shows some more distortion and vignetting, it offers a lot larger focal range in a smaller package, better sharpness in the overlapping range and comes at a significantly lower...
