Covering a versatile array of wide-angle focal lengths, the AF-S NIKKOR 16-35mm f/4G ED VR from Nikon is a flexible zoom ideal for landscape, cityscape, and interior photography. Its constant f/4 maximum aperture maintains consistent illumination throughout the zoom range and suits working in a variety of lighting conditions. The optical design contains three aspherical elements and two extra-low dispersion elements, which greatly reduce distortion and aberrations for a high degree of sharpness, clarity, and accurate rendering. A Nano Crystal Coat has also been applied to control flare and ghosting for greater contrast and color accuracy in harsh lighting and backlit conditions. 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.

Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 16-35mm f/4G ED VR Reviews
Nikon 16-35mm 4.0 ED VR Lens
I've been using the 24-70mm 2.8 for a while now and wanted something a little wider for landscape and street photography. The 16-35 duplicates some of the 24-70 range but I just did not want to deal with the 14-24 monster. This 16-35 makes an excellent walk-around lens and I can always carry something longer if I want.
Good lens with a minor caveat for film shooters.
I use with with an F6 35mm camera. I have found this lens to be quite sharp from corner to corner. Good ultra wide zoom range. No vignetting, at least with only one filter attached. I didn't test it with two. Distortion at 16mm is nasty, so compose to avoid straight lines that run parallel along the edge of the frame if you want to avoid it being obvious. Distortion at all other focal lengths is much less of a problem. Of course, digital cameras can correct this distortion, but not film cameras. Be aware that this is a big heavy lens for a wide angle. You might want to check your camera case dimensions to make sure it will accommodate it. I can't get my F6 into my Ape ACPRO 1200 case with this lens attached, which means I have to switch back to my 24-120mm when I put the camera away. A pretty trivial inconvenience, though.
Great shopping experience
Great lense, great price, delivered on time.
So far, so good
I haven't had a chance to use this extensively in the field yet, but in playing around with it in my house and my yard, I am favorably impressed. Lightweight, yet solid. Zoom is internal. Controls are simple. Compact size. Nice images with no distortion that I could detect. I'm pretty happy with it so far. I can't wait to take it out and really use it.
I originally purchased the 18-35 f3.5-4.5 from B&H 6 weeks ago, I thought the lens was sharp enough, but really wanted the 16-35 f, 4, but it was out of my price range at the time. I can't say that the 18-35 was a disappointment. However, it felt lightweight and not exactly robust. So, When B&H dropped the price of the 16-35 by $300.00, it was a no brainer. I had to upgrade. So what were the upgrades? First, the quite noticeable difference in the max wide angle. Second, a constant f 4, as apposed to the varying f 3.5-4.5 as you zoom out on the 18-35. Third, I gained weather-proofing on the 16-35, that the 18-35 lacked. Fourth, The VR feature, which some may consider unimportant, has already come in handy in my first few uses of the lens. Fifth, and finally, This lens fits my hand perfectly. I love where it puts the center of mass in my hand while shooting. In summary, the images that I have taken so far, are tack sharp, even when I zoom in as far as I can, whether its on my 27 Mac monitor, or the back of the D850's built in monitor. Had I realized the differences in the two lenses, I would have paid the additional money for the 16-35 in the first place. P.S. Props to B&H for facilitating the exchange, even though it was slightly past their return policy time limit.
I am very happy with images from my new 16-35.
Very quick and sharp lens. The glass is superb. Photos are extremely crisp.
Recently bought and starting to use. So far I'm in love.
