Excerpt: This is my 1st ultra wide lens, and it has opened up so many new shot ideas that cannot be done with a normal or wide angle...I find myself using the 16mm more than anything as I explore how I can use the lens.
Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus
Excerpt: A lot of reviews on the internet say that this lens is overkill on DX cameras, but I love it on my D7100. I also own the very good Nikon 12-24mm DX lens, but I was often bumping up against the 24mm upper limit on that lens, so the 16-35mm range better suits my shooting style. The VR on this lens is also a big advantage over the 12-24mm. It is a bit on the large side, but not excessively so.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I own the 24-70 2.8 and the 70-200 2.8, I wanted a wide angle but really didn't want to pay the price for the 14-24 2.8...considering this is for landscape I don't feel I need a 2.8 and this is a fixed 4. Nikon was offering almost $ off so it was a no brainer..It has the same filter size (77mm) as the other 2 I mentioned so I don't need to carry multiples of filters. As all Nikon lenses the picture quality is great and sharp.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction
Excerpt: Since I upgraded to D610 from D7000, I do need a wide angle zoom for FX, but I don't need the ultra-ultra wide of 14-24 F/2.8 with that cost and extra weight. I'm not shooting landscape at f/2.8 anyway and indeed I love to have VR instead. This 16-35mm f/4 VR is extremely sharp center at almost all settings, just little soft wide open at 16mm. When stop it down, get WOW photos!
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I have been wanting a wide angle lens for some time. Your eye does not see like this lens. So it will take time to get use to it. So far I have used it for landscapes, Close ups for flower blossoms and for table ware that we want to sell. I like the light weight so it os easy to handle.
