Rate & Review


The Nikon AF-S Nikkor 16-85mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX Lens is a compact, 5.3x wide-angle-to-medium telephoto zoom, and is ideal for a variety of shooting situations from interiors and landscapes to portraits. Its optical design is optimized for use with Nikon DX-format digital SLRs for outstanding performance.

The lens features Vibration Reduction (VRII) Image Stabilization which minimizes the effects of camera shake, allowing you to handhold at up to 4 shutter speeds slower than otherwise possible, providing dramatically sharper images. Nikon Silent Wave Motor (SWM) technology enables quiet, accurate and high-speed autofocus operation.

The two ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements offer incredible sharpness and color correction by effectively minimizing chromatic aberration. Three aspherical lens elements virtually eliminate coma and other types of lens aberration, even at the widest aperture.

  • Nikon Super Integrated Coating (SIC) offers superior color performance and substantially reduced ghosting and flare.
  • Close focusing distance to 1.3' throughout the entire zoom range.
  • Rounded 7-blade diaphragm for more natural appearance of out-of-focus image elements.
  • Picture angle equivalent to focal length of 24-127.5mm (in 35mm format)
