Nikon 16-85mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR ED-IF AF-S DX S

Review Date: Sep 3, 2010 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $513.00 | Rating: 9 

Pros: Range, weight, relatively sharp, fast focusing, fairly close focusing, low distortion for its class. An excellent value.
Not quite as sharp as its higher priced, much heaver siblings.

My standard walk around lens now. Not as sharp as my 35-70 2.8D, but much more versatile because of its wider zoom range; plus, because of its lighter weight, it is far easier on the wrist. Mine is nearly two years old now, with moderate use, and I see no zoom creep. Overall, an excellent lens at this price point.
