Q & As

Rated 5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent advanced amateur wide-angle FX zoom Many professional reviews are very positive about this lens, but highlight distortion at 18mm as a problem. I must say that in real world usage this is not a problem. It really only shows up with buildings, and usually diverging verticals is more of a problem. Using Lightroom or DxO Viewpoint easily solves distortion and diverging verticals for NEF files. On my D800 the camera can rectify distortion automatically for JPG files. Image quality, colour saturation and contrast are superb, VR is wonderful for getting hand-held low light exposure, especially useful for indoor shots. I calibrated the focus point with FoCal, and the lens required no AF Fine Adjustment. This indicates the quality level this lens is made to (Made in Japan). I have had to adjust cheaper, consumer level Nikon lenses by up to 6 points on the D800 AF Fine Adjustment scale. I also looked at the Nikon 14-24 (too expensive) and Tokina 16-28 (quality too variable for me; though a good one is excellent). Altogether, a quality product at a reasonable price. 28 January 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nikon 16-35mm AF-S VR Zoom Lens As a long time Nikon user with FX camera bodies I was looking for a wide angle zoom. I mainly shoot live music and in smaller venues this lens at 16mm can get the whole band in, even if you are tight for space!. Its also a fabulous lens for landscapes, giving you photos extra dimension and if there are clouds, spectacular skies. Build quality is superb as you'd expect from Nikon, focusing fast and should you need it built in VR to help keep things sharp at slow shutter speeds.Nice glass. 15 November 2012
