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

2178-1_copy
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.
Cons:
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.
