Light, sharp and economical

  • Excerpt: Already owning Nikon's 70-200mm f/2.8 VR and 24-70mm f/2.8 I thought I would eventually get the 14-24mm for the "Holy Trinity" package. But the thought of long hikes or street photography with all that weight made me reconsider. I then looked at the 16-35mm f/4 VR, but with the lowlight performance of my new D750, I really didn't see a need for VR. So I tried this 18-35mm and am so glad I did. What distortion there is can be taken care of in Lightroom.

A Gem of a lens that outperforms it's Market Segment and Price Point!

  • Summary: Performance 4 Stars, Value 5 Stars Bottom LIne - In the field, under most conditions, this lens will produce almost identical results as the AF-S 16-35mm f/4 VR for $500 less. If you can afford it, I recommend the 16-35mm f/4 VR, but if you have to 'settle' for the 18-35mm your not optical quality. Every once in a while you run across a lens that exceeds it's marketing slot and price point. This is one such lens.

Great Landscape Lens

DigitalFilmWorks, B&H Photo
23 October 2014
  • Excerpt: I rented this lens and was so impressed at how well it performed on my D7100 and D800 I ended up buying it. It's light, very sharp, has good Brokeh for an UWA lens and doesn't get in your way. I fully intended on buying the Nikon 16-35mm f/4 VR having previously owned that great lens but for the difference in weight and price it just didn't make sense to me.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh

Great on crop sensor. FF not great.

  • Excerpt: With all due respect to those giving this lens 5 stars on a full frame, they must not be that discerning. This lens rates 5 stars on a crop sensor, 4 stars on full frame. I check lens sharpness by photographing antique bricks, and do so at four different aperatures and different focal lengths. On the D600, full frame, the corners are quite soft wide open. Corners sharpen to acceptable limits at f/7. The center of the image is tack sharp even wide open.
  • Pros: Lightweight

Super light weight pocket rocket !!!

  • Excerpt: Do not be quick to judge this lens by its cheap price tag and lightweight, you really have to try it out to know what's what. After switching to Nikon from Canon half a year ago, I decided to get a 16-35mm f/4 VR from a local store, since it still has gold ring and great build quality + VR compare to the 14-24mm (which I can't use b/c I need to use filter).
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light, Weak Casing
