  • 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

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

  • 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.
