  • Excerpt: Never could get anything sharp out of this lens. Sent it back to Nikon as a NPS repair. Still not much better. Worst Nikon lens I have ever owned and I have owned most of them.
  • Cons: Blurry Focus

Big disappointment

  • Excerpt: I've had this lens for seven months now. I have yet to produce a usable photo or video with it. This thing is soft. I've tried it on both the D700 and D7000. At every focal length, at every f stop, the same results, mushy images, corners and centers.
  • Pros: Range
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light, Soft Images

  • Excerpt: I returned this lens because it was unacceptably soft off center axis on my D300. At 16mm even when stopped down to f5.6 off center image quality was soft. I also compared it to my excellent Nixon 24-70mm f2.8 at both 24mm and 35mm.

Don't Buy

White Fang, B&H Photo
28 February 2011
  • Excerpt: The lens I purchased for my D300 was soft off center axis at 16mm at F4 and even when stopped down to F5.6. The same poor result occured at 24mm and 35mm. Even though the 16-35mm has VR, it didn't come close to matching my non-VR Nikon 24-70 at the same F stops and at the same focal lenghts (24mm...

Not what I expected

  • Summary: After reading all the glowing reviews (especially from K. Rockwell) I decided to buy this lens to replace my 14-24. WHAT A MISTAKE! I wanted something lighter to schlup around. I shoot a lot of architecture and wanted to lighten my load of D700 + 14-24 lens + tripod.

  • Excerpt: Хочу предупредить коллег не делать ошибок!
  • Pros: Быстрая фокусировка, достаточно легкий для своего размера, встроенная фокусировка линз
  • Cons: отвратительное качество картинки (детализация, резкость) , на F4 картинка распадается по всем фокусным, прикрытие дырочки радикально проблему не решает
