£860/$1,070

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.

BUY if… You want the finest DX-for­mat stan­dard zoom lens avail­able.
