Additionally, this lens also sports a Silent Wave Motor for fast and accurate autofocus along with VR II image stabilization to minimize the appearance of camera shake by 2.5 stops.

Wide-angle zoom designed for FX-format sensors, this 16-35mm lens can also be used with DX models where it provides a 24-52.5mm equivalent focal length range.
Constant f/4 maximum aperture offers consistent performance and light transmission throughout the zoom range.
Three aspherical elements are used to reduce spherical aberrations and distortion in order to realize sharp imagery with accurate rendering.
Two extra-low dispersion elements greatly reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations in order to produce greater clarity and color accuracy.
A Nano Crystal Coat has been applied to individual elements to suppress internal reflections, flare, and ghosting for improved contrast and color accuracy when working in strong lighting conditions.
Silent Wave Motor affords quick, quiet, and precise autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus override. An internal focusing design is also used, where only the internal lens groups are moved during focusing, to maintain the overall length of the lens during use and to promote faster focusing speeds.
VR II (Vibration Reduction) image stabilization helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake by 2.5 stops to benefit shooting handheld in difficult lighting conditions.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm promotes a pleasing out of focus quality that benefits the use of shallow depth of field techniques.

Is this lens still has the vignetting and distortion issues ? Or those were corrected by Nikon?
Asked by: p
Distortion is a normal occurrence with wide angle lenses, but may be more prominent depending on the angle you are shooting at. However as previously stated, most popular editing software can correct for this distortion easily.

i read about the vignetting and distortion in the 16mm focal length. Is that still an issue with the products made in 2020?

question

I'm debating between this lens and the Tamron 15-30 f2.8. Would you say this lens is as sharp as the Tamron (or sharper)? I don't think I need the extra speed the Tamron offers for landscapes, but I'm thinking being able to use a filter on the Nikon might be a plus. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Asked by: Alan
I've used both. the Tamron is definitely sharper and faster (comparable to the Nikon 14-24). However, its also much heavier and does not take standard size filters or filter holders. I ended up sticking with the Nikon for landscape photography.
