Nikon 16-35mm f/4.0 overview

  • 1Description

The AF-S NIKKOR 16-35mm f/4G ED VR Lens from Nikon delivers crisp, clear and non-distorted images with a versatile set of wide-angle focal lengths. It is a lens often found in the kits of working photojournalists due to its comprehensive wide-angle coverage, relative light weight and durability. On DX format DSLRs it provides the 35mm focal length equivalence of 24-52.5mm. The optical design features 17 lens elements in 12 groups and includes 2 Extra-low Dispersion (ED) and 3 aspherical elements to reduce chromatic aberrations and distortion and lend high contrast images. Nano Crystal Coating virtually eliminates internal lens element reflections across a wide range of wavelengths and reduces flare and ghosting.

Fast, accurate and quiet autofocus is accomplished via Nikon's exclusive Silent Wave Motor (SWM) and Internal Focus (IF) enables fast autofocus without changing the length of the lens, retaining working distance throughout the focus range. Manual focus override allows for precise control over critical focus even when in AF mode. The VR II image stabilization system reduces the blur caused by camera shake enabling 2.5 shutter speed stops of compensation in dim light. Practically, this means that handheld shooting is possible in almost all situations. The lens also features a rounded 9-blade diaphragm which creates a natural appearance in out-of-focus areas of your images.

Definitive Wide-Angle Zoom Lens
This versatile wide-angle zoom lens is perfect for photojournalism, travel, landscapes, cityscapes, and general photography. On DX format DSLRs it provides the 35mm equivalent focal range of 24-52.5mm.
Exclusive Nikon Silent Wave
Nikons exclusive Nikon Silent Wave Motor (SWM) enables fast, accurate and near-silent autofocusing.
Internal Focus (IF)
Internal Focus (IF) provides fast and precise autofocus without changing the length of the lens, retaining working distance throughout the focus range.
Nikon VR II (Vibration Reduction)
Updated Vibration Reduction II, engineered specifically for each VR NIKKOR lens, enables handheld shooting at up to 2.5 shutter speeds slower than would otherwise be possible, assuring dramatically sharper still images and video capture.
Two Extra-Low Dispersion (ED) Elements
Two Extra-low Dispersion (ED) elements offer superior sharpness and color correction by effectively minimizing chromatic aberration, even at the widest aperture settings.
Three Aspherical Lens Elements
Aspherical lens elements virtually eliminate coma and other types of aberration, even when shooting at the widest available aperture.
Nano Crystal Coating
The Nano Crystal lens coating reduces ghosting and interior flare across a wide range of wavelengths for even greater image clarity.
M/A Focus Mode Switch
The M/A focus mode switch allows quick changes between manual and autofocus operation.
Rounded 9-Blade Diaphragm
The rounded 9-blade diaphragm renders a natural appearance of out-of-focus image elements.

Nikon 16-35mm f/4.0 reviews

AF-S NIKKOR 16-35mm f/4G ED VR Lens is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 479.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from great lens looked for a year to fit a extra wide for my D750. Considered sigma 20 f1.4 but wanted wider view. considered nikon 17-35 2.8 but no real need for wide-open 2.8 so bought the 16-35. at f8 to 11 it shines. great for photographing up close such as museums and nature vistas or just a tree scape up close. This lens with the D750 is a great easy combo for wide views yet you still have 35mm for tighter shots. BH gives a free kit 77 clear filter - if spending a grand on a lends - spend a little extra and get high end filter glass such as the Formatt 77 UV ultraslim filter - it does not darken corners when wide open. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Lens I bought this lens for landscapes. I have used this lens for a few months now and have found that if you do your work this lens does its work. This lens is replacing four prime lenses (20, 24, 28, 35). The only problem with this lens is that I wish the distance scale were more precise. In my landscapes I usually push the limits for depth of field. That requires carefully setting of the distance on the lens (usually hyperfocal distance). With distance scales on the newer zoom lens that sometime is not an easy task. The color on this lens snaps and when viewed at 100% is sharp at both zoom ends. All in all this is a excellent lens!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Lens for DX I use this lens on a D7000 for landscapes and videos. I wanted something that would cover 16-24mm on DX, which is the range that I found useful when I did landscapes on film many years ago (24-35mm). It works well for this. It is sharpest at 16-26mm. It gets a little soft at 35mm. On DX, distortion is very acceptable at 16mm, and throughout the range. It works surprisingly well for video. The VR prevents camera shake when used appropriately, and 16-35mm is a great range for family and landscape videos. The f/4 has not been a restriction for landscapes and videos on D7000. Also, it is much lighter than my 24-70mm f/2.8. I'm very satisfied.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Alternative to the Nikon 17-35 2.8 I wanted a quality wide angle zoom for landscape shots. I looked at the 14-24 2.8, but finally ruled it out because I couldn't easily put a filter on it. I also looked at the 17-35 2.8, but I couldn't justify the extra expense for one F stop, especially when I would normally stop down for a landscape anyway. I like the VR on this lens. It is tack sharp and with the VR it works great for flashless indoor shots. It is lighter than I expected, but the build quality seems good. There is significant distortion at the wider angles, but I have been able to correct that quite easily in Photoshop CS5. I am quite happy with my purchase of this lens.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, sharp, wide zoom lens! I can understand why this lens is often backordered. I prefer this lens to the 17-35. It is sharper and the VR is very helpful for indoor ambient light handheld shots. The VR more than makes up for the f/4 vs f/2.8. The focus and zoom rings are nicely placed and sized. The range is much more useful than the 14-24 for most applications. This and the 28-300 make a good pair for hiking or traveling (relatively) light and both use 77mm filters. Considering the performance and price I think it is an excellent value. This lens would be my first recommendation to most people for a wide zoom Nikkor for FX. Very happy with it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent lens, real sharp I use it for landscape, street photography and people/events. It provides excellent sharpness on a D700, side to side. No flare, even when shooting into the sun. Has a nice bokeh too. It's much more practical than the 14-24/2.8. VR works nice, but doesn't make a huge difference. I hope Nikon continues to produce more pro/semi-pro grade f4 lenses. The cons are that the lens is big, protruding a lot more than the 20-35 or 17-35, and that it's not built as tough as the other two mentioned. The front element moves in and out within the barrel while zooming, which may cause dust to enter into the lens - the use of a filter is definitely recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Lens , bought for landscapes 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. I was looking to buy a used one but they were selling for basically the same price as I got this one with the Nikon sale..pretty light weight . I'm planing a trip to Ireland and was the main reason I added this lens to my collection..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Made the right choice! Purchased my 16-35 simply because I wanted to use filters for waterfalls beach scenes etc. Although the 14-24 was very sharp,I also wanted more reach with the 16-35 on my D700. I also purchased the Sing-Ray LB color Combo to enhance my images and that you could not do with the 14-24 i did notice some vignetting but set the lens to 22 to 24 with no vignetting even with the LB color Combo on. Read the reviews and then decide for yourself like I did and don't let anyone sway you. You yourself know what you want to do with this lens. I am very happy with this lens. Go out and get yourself A 16-35 right now!
