On a quest to create the finest optics in the world, Nikon has created this wide-angle zoom lens with f/4 maximum aperture, covering a broad range of focal length, from an incredibly wide 16mm to the standard 35mm. With the application of Nano Crystal Coating, internal lens element reflections are virtually eliminated across a wide range of wavelengths. This is particularly effective in reducing ghost and flare peculiar to ultra wide-angle lenses. This coating along with other advanced lens technologies combine to create exceptional performance in a broad range of shooting situations.
Perfect for interior shots, this wide-angle zoom lens delivers outstanding resolution and contrast.
Crystal Clear Imagery
Nikon’s exclusive second generation Vibration Reduction system (VR II) enables steady hand-held shooting at all focal lengths. Delivering sharp photos and video, VR II allows you to use shutter speeds that are up to 4 stops slower than would otherwise be possible. And being an optical system means that the viewfinder image is also stabilised, enabling more accurate autofocus acquisition and framing. Leave your tripod at home and shoot with confidence, safe in the knowledge that the AF-S NIKKOR 16-35mm f/4G ED VR lens will produce photos of outstanding sharpness and colour even in low light.
Providing superb optical performance, the lens comprises 17 element in 12 groups, in a design with two ED and three aspherical lens elements. The iris diaphragm has nine rounded blades for a soft rendering effect, producing high-quality natural backgrounds. Featuring a newly designed optical system, the ED elements work together with the aspherical elements to eliminate problems of coma and chromatic aberration and ensure high-resolution and superior contrast.
Nikon's AF-S technology is yet another reason why professional photographers like NIKKOR lenses. Nikon’s exclusive Silent Wave Motor (SWM) converts travelling waves into rotational energy to focus the optics. This enables high-speed autofocusing that’s extremely accurate and super quiet. So for discrete shooting you can set up the shot in an instant and camera focusing won’t disturb sensitive subjects like wildlife.
Nikon’s VR II enables sharp, blur-free handheld shooting at all focal lengths even in low light.
Combining ease-of-use and maximum precision, the AF-S NIKKOR 16-35mm f/4G ED VR lens has two focus modes. In addition to Manual focus, Manual-priority autofocus (M/A) allows you to switch from autofocus to manual operation with virtually no time lag, even during AF servo operation and regardless of the AF mode in use. This gives all the benefits of fast, automatic focusing while still retaining the ability to make fine focus adjustments before taking the shot.
The AF-S NIKKOR 16-35mm f/4G ED VR lens was built with long-lasting durability and portability in mind. Using a high proportion of magnesium in its construction, this sturdy lens weighs in at an economical 680g, providing well-balanced handling. Allowing for a more compact design, Nikon's Internal focus (IF) technology limits all the optical movement to the interior of the non-extending lens barrel. This intelligent system enables a close minimum focus distance to be retained throughout the zoom range at or below 29cm (less than 1ft). And with a weather-sealed mount protecting both the lens and camera it’s an ideal choice for the adventurous enthusiast and professional photographer alike.
Designed to handle a variety of scenes and subject matter, and supplied complete with an HB-23 Lens Hood and Soft Lens Case, the ultra wide-angle AF-S NIKKOR 16-35mm f/4G ED VR lens from Nikon will add a new perspective to your photography.
