 Nikon 16-85mm f/3.5-5.6 Review

“great lens for walkabouts”

nikon nikkor 16-85

A great lens for a day walking around your favorite city (a walkabout) 16mm great for wide shots..getting in an entire doorway or unusual window. At 85..not a lot of telephoto but enough to get you by. I bought this lens to replace a wonderful 18-55 I had..this gives me just a bit more width and 50% more telephoto. VR works great in low light situtations to let you drop your sutter speed and still handhold at dusk, or a back dark alleyway in London or Venice.

Becareful reading reviews–there is a Negative review floating about in which the buyer states he got this lens with his D80 and complains the lens mount is plastic and broke…Sorry but this lens has a METAL lens mount and is NOT available as a “kit’ lens with the D80. I feel sorry for the guy-broke a ‘kit’ lens but he is reporting and complaining about the wrong lens (I suspect he broke the $199 18-55 kit lens which has the plastic lens mount –part of why it only costs $199)…again, this lens has a metal mounting plate.
