Overview
  • 1Description

The AF-S DX NIKKOR 16-85mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR Lens from Nikon is a compact, lightweight, fully-featured zoom lens that covers a wide 5.3x focal zoom range, and is ideal for a wide range of shooting situations. It is compatible for use with Nikon DSLR cameras with the smaller DX format sensor. This lens offers an equivalent focal length in 35mm terms of 24-127.5mm. It will conveniently cover everything from tight indoor portraits to medium telephoto shots.

The improved Vibration Reduction (VRII) system allows handheld telephoto zoom shooting even in poorly lit conditions. It minimizes image blur caused by camera shake, and offers the equivalent of shooting at a shutter speed 3.5 stops faster. The Nikon Super Integrated Coating used in this lens minimizes ghosting and flare to provide even higher contrast and more vivid images, even in challenging light conditions. Three aspherical lens elements virtually eliminate coma and other types of lens aberration even when used at the widest aperture and two Extra-low Dispersion glass elements provide superior sharpness and color correction by effectively minimizing chromatic aberration. 

The Silent Wave Motor featured in this lens enables fast, precise and quiet autofocus action which is particularly important when shooting HD video and with an internal focus system, only the inner lens groups move during focusing and the lens does not extend. This G-type Nikkor lens is designed with no aperture rings, and offers easier AE operation.
