  • Excerpt: I have a love/hate relationship with this lens. As a full-time architectural photographer, this is my primary go-to lens, however, it is not my favorite. It's a very good lens, overall, but just not stellar. For my work I do not need a particularly fast lens so the max.

  • Excerpt: I bought this lens as an alternative to buying a 14-24, which is just a little out of my price range. I had read some great reviews on this lens and tried it out shortly at a local camera store. After owning it for a week, I had to return this lens...

cannot stand the distortion

  • Excerpt: Bought this len and used on D90. Plan on using it on D610 by Thanksgiving. The images are sharp and color reproduction are very good. Both are quite similar to 35mm 1.8G. It is light considered the size of the len. I took a few pics. indoor at 16 mm.

  • Excerpt: I'm still scratching my head over how I got here. I was shooting with a D7000, but I really wanted, or thought I wanted, some N series lenses because of the supposed promise to eliminate lens flare.

Good not Great

  • Excerpt: Having had the Nikon 14-24 and the 17-35, the 16-35 seemed like a great choice with the newer design than the 17-35 and the ability to use filters and not be concerned about the unprotected condition of the enormous front element on the 14-24.

Mushy and soft, poor AF accuracy

  • Excerpt: Geat pictures are coming from the photographer not from the lens. But this has limitations being very soft at f>4 and inconsistent AF due to the used plastic rings. The VR is very useful for Christmas nights in town. Made still spectacular pictures with it and D700.
  • Pros: Lightweight
