    If you can find the money, this is probably the best all-around Nikon zoom lens you can buy for your DX DSLR. It is a solid lens and definitely beats the 18-55mm kit lens by every measure, but for the purposes of this review I'll be comparing it to the 18-200mm zoom lens, which I had used for quite a while as my go-to "covers all scenarios" lens. The extra 2mm may not seem like much, but this lens definitely produces solid wide-angle shots. There is a little distortion on either end (noticeable barrel at 16mm and a little pincushion when zoomed out), but nothing that can’t be fixed easily in post-production (or even in-camera with some models). I was worried that 80mm wouldn’t be enough zoom after getting spoiled by my 18-200mm, but it’s actually worked out well and the 16-80mm hasn’t left my camera since I bought it. Alternatively, you could pick up the Nikkor 16-85mm lens for less money, but with the 16-80mm you are paying for a much faster lens with a much better aperture range (a full stop faster for better results in low light) and incredible vibration reduction, making formerly impossible handheld shots a breeze. Photos come out of the camera consistently clear, sharp, and beautiful. Do you need to buy this lens? No. Will you be thrilled that you did? Yes.

    Very pleased with this lens...definitely the upper end of the Nikon DX format offerings. Crystal clear images; the only downside being the f2.8-f4 aperture range - wish it could be f2.8 throughout, but I can work with that. the Nano-coating makes a noticeable difference as well.

    This 16-80mm Nikkor lens is the equivalent of 24-120mm on 35mm cameras, making it perfect for wide angle and everyday shooting. I use it with the D7200 and the combination of this great body and a high quality F2.8 lens is unbeatable. Vibration Reduction too!
