      Very Nice Lens For the Price

      Bought the lens for personal use and to have nice memories. I was considering buying the 14-24 Nikon lens but just wasn't thrilled about the price of the 14-24 lens. Read reviews about the 16-35 lens, was impressed about how well the 16-35 was reviewed. I must say that just holding the 14-24 lens was just a very nice feeling but the price just wasn't worth the lens for me since I don't do professional photography or anything like that. I decided to buy the 16-35 lens just before my trip to the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico and I'm really happy with the lens. I have a Nikon 5300 (very basic camera) and even with this basic camera I get some nice pictures. Overall, happy with the lens for the price!

      I purchased this lens online from Best Buy. I received the shipment in time and was glad with overall experience. However, I do notice there is curvilinear spot on the lens (which should not have been there since this is a new purchase). I am attaching a pic for review. It just makes me feel may be the Lens was returned/refurbished or had some repair done. I would be exchanging it for a similar lens but currently BB does not have it in stock. I will call customer care and see what can be done to fix the issue.

      Not a DX lens, this is FX

      This is my first ultra-wide lens, and I paired it with my Nikon D800. The VR worked well to minimize handshake, so I was free to use it in low light conditions. Lots of distortion can be seen when viewing an unedited photo, but this is easily corrected in Lightroom or Photoshop. You should know that even though this is advertised as a DX lens, it is clearly not. This a very effective FX lens with some vinetting at 16mm. Sadly I returned this lens in favor of a 14-24mm instead. I wanted to get that extra 2mm and also complete my trinity set (24-70, 70-200).

      All the other reviews on how good this lens are correct. I was in a dilemma on which wide angle lens to chose and went thru many reviews online. I had narrowed done my choices to the highly rated Tamron 15-30 2.8 or this lens. I choose this for the following: Ability to use 77mm filters The extra reach to 35mm I shoot mainly outdoors in good light This is a wonderful lens and you will not be disappointed. You just have to ask yourself what and where you shoot..

      In the world of Nikon wide angle lenses, this and the venerated 12-24 are the top contenders. I decided on this one mainly because I use filters for landscape photography. Very pleased with the performance. VR is an added bonus that I don't use much. What I don't like about it is the plastic feel compared to the more solid 12-24. On the other hand it makes the lens lighter. Not a big deal and the only imperfection I can think of. Its a great value lens for the money. I use this with a D600.

      I love this lens I bought from best buy. It is my all-in-one lens. I used it in event, landscape and portrait photography. I never regret I own one. I like it as a zoom lens with 16 to 35 mm. Now, I don't have to worry taking group pictures during events.

      So far this has been a great lens. The first time I used it was on a trip to Alaska and it worked great. Paired nicely with my 24-120 f4 and 70-200 f4. Light weight, which was nice since I was doing a lot of hiking. Using on a Nikon D810 with no issues.

      This has to be my pinnacle of lenses in my Kit! It is the sharpest, by far of all the pro lenses I own, and I have a pile of them.. I bought this to complete the "Trilogy" of lens and am I glad I did... You will not go wrong with this lens, especially for landscape, but it is also great for a walk around lens also.
