Pros: focal excursion, VR, weight

Cons: disastrous angles at 16 mm, water infiltration

Opinion: after a year of use I can say that the defects outweigh the merits. The focal range is excellent the weight quite contained although not the stated one (720 gr with lampshade) combined with an exceptional VR for freehand photos that I regret very much. Unfortunately, the lens is only tropicalized on paper, following a trip to Iceland with frontal spray from a waterfall (not direct water on the target) and dried immediately were formed concentric rings inside the lenses, perhaps remnants of limestone/ dirt as a result of drying forcing me to sell it at a price to say the least ridiculous. Disastrous 16 mm angles, in some cases you are forced to cut them from how opaque and insharp they are.

Pros: Focus, sharpness, versatility.

Cons: Just the weight.

Opinion: This is an exceptional lens for me. Gifts colors and super sharpness and above all it is a wide-angle pushed, just as I like it. Among my best shots, many were made with this lens. The only downside is the weight and size that are remarkable (unfortunately), otherwise it is a lens that I love and that I recommend. I didn't find any defects in hallucirate lenses or anything like that. For me a 9.5 as a grade (the half point is only for weight/clutter, but I also understand that the project - to include VR - probably could not allow smaller dimensions).

Pros: Clarity across the field already from f4 (excluding 35mm), distortion noteworthy only at 16mm (corrects in the room), discreet resistance to flare, use of 77mm filters, VR, color yield, minimum focus distance, weight and quite modest size, versatility, zoom and AF INTERNI (it does not rotate anything, nothing comes out, no dust comes in), tropicalized.

Cons: At 35mm as sharpness drops a bit to f4 and you have to close to f5, 6-f8.

Opinion: Great beautiful lens, with a very versatile range of focals, fantastic the zoom and af interior mechanism. Ideal for landscapes and architecture (most obvious distortion at 16mm,solvable directly in the room). With a small minimum maf distance, it can also be used for close-up and creative shots. Coupled with 70-200 f4 is an exceptional combination. Personally I mount the 16-35 on the Nikon D850 (where thanks to the high number of Mpixels I can crop in the room or in pp to get the focal points between 35mm and 70mm) and the 70-200 on Nikon D600. If you do not want to complicate life with a 14-24 f2.8 (unmanageable by weight, clutter and impossibility of easy use of filters) and you can give up an f2.8, this is the right lens.

Pros: Sharpness across the field, rugged, VR, front diameter for filters

Cons: 16 correctable Distortion, if you do architecture

Opinion: Taken to mount it on DF and D810, and immediately I noticed that it was a great zoom, for landscapes and street is the best that you can have, at all Apermi I find the optics in question excellent, has no particular sagging, I found to TA the extreme edges read more morbid I, but not in an egregious manner. In weddings, I noticed that I use in a very high percentage of the 16 -35, both for excellent quality and because it encloses the focal range most important for photography, the last VR where for me it really makes sense, so you can shoot with lower times , and keep the lower ISO, this Nikon works great. Beautiful lens also in the construction and especially in the various fields of employment, which are many, in the landscape is essential.

Pros: Versatility, sharpness, counterlight sealing, construction.

Cons: Slight loss at the extreme edges, 16mm distortion easily correctable in post.

Opinion: There are various thoughts and experiences on this lens, I noticed the negative comments of the last 4 users, while the previous reviews are exciting, this makes me think maybe an inconstancy of quality of the specimens, I say this because mine is extraordinary, Excellent sharpness on the center and median parts of the frame already at F4 which closes further improves, a slight drop in the extreme edges but I think is justified by the amplitude of the zoom. I confirm the distortion to 16mm, but it corrects fine in post, easily on Lightroom that I use. At 35mm It is true that it loses a little bit, but not so dramatic the result then I noticed that it also depends on the origin of the light. In conclusion I can say that the lens is great as long as you find the specimen without defects, so I recommend it quietly but try it before you buy it.
