A stunning wide-angle lens for FX format Nikon cameras
What lens to mount on your camera when you are faced with a wide open, majestic view? The Nikon AF-S 16-35mm f4 VR is a firm contender, with a wide zoom range that is perfect for taking it all in and a feature set to ensure that it delivers satisfactory results - to put it mildly.
The field of view offered by this FX format lens ranges from 107 to 63 degrees, perfect for packing as much as you want into a frame without producing heavily distorted images. This wide view is well-suited, but not limited to landscape, architecture and interior style shoots, where your main goal is cramming the limitless beauty that you are witnessing into a solitary photograph.
Equipping you to handle virtually any shooting situation, the Nikon 16-35mm features a constant f4 aperture and VR stabiliser. Both these features work in unison to battle camera shake, by allowing the use of faster shutter speeds and by negating the effects of any movement that does occur. The result of all of this extra support is sharp and blur-free images - any time, any place.
Prepared to focus on any subject placed before it, the 16-35mm contains Nikon's excellent SWM autofocus system. This system is consistently accurate, as well as being fast and quiet, the sort of characteristics that a modern DSLR user is seeking to handle both stills and video applications.
Producing image sharpness that is typical of any high-class Nikkor lens, the 16-35mm has been constructed of two ED and three Aspherical glass elements, as well as Nano Crystal coating. All of these design implements work together to reduce the appearance of aberrations, distortions, ghosting and flare - leaving just the good stuff!
