Nikon AF-S DX 16-80mm f/2.8-4E ED VR
Best DX standard zoom
With Nikon’s latest DX D-SLRs pushing image resolution ever higher, and omitting anti-alias filters in order to retain superb levels of fine detail, you really need great glass to make the most of the opportunities these advances provide.
The new 16-80mm VR is the perfect standard zoom, with all of the versatility you need for a wide range of shooting scenarios. It’s ‘faster’ than most competing lenses, with an f/2.8-4 aperture range; boasts four ED (Extra-low Dispersion) elements; and has an electromagnetically controlled diaphragm for accurate aperture control. As a DX lens for everyday shooting, it’s hard to beat.
