Summary: So far I love this lens, I just got it today, and I have tested it with couple pics, Great!. the zoom system is inside the lens, instead of like nikon 24-120, zoom outside. It is sharp, but still need test. The color it captures is great also. Here are two pics directly from my camera.
Excerpt: I bought this to replace the DX Super Wide-Angle Len I had for my new D810 camera because the old DX SWA lense shrinks the cropped image area into a very small area (about 50% of the viewfinder) on D810 and makes it really hard for me to frame the pictures.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Sharp images, Vibration Reduction
Excerpt: I was on the fence about this lens for some time and decided to pull the trigger. I sold my 5 year old 24-70 2.8 and 70-200 2.8 VR II and used the money to purchase this lens and the 70-200 f4 and could not be happier.
Excerpt: I love the wide zoom range and VR for dark interiors. On a recent visit to Mission San Miguel it was wide enough at 16 for the interiors and the VR allowed me to keep ISO low for dynamic range with slow shutters.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus
Excerpt: Focus is fast and accurate. Very little distortion even at 16 mm. Balances well on my D610 with battery grip. The VR works great for hand holding those landscape shots. The build quality seems to be top notch and I like that it uses a 77 mm filter like so many of my other Nikon lenses.
Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Strong Construction
