The review treats most of Nikon’s ultra-wide zooms along with some “prime” lenses in their range.

Nikon’s 16-35mm f/4 offering follows closely on the heels of Canon’s 16-35mm f/4L (see review), but offers a VR (vibration reduction) feature which Canon does not. It’s a nice plus, but optical quality and ergonomics are the bottom line.

Related reviews include Nikon 24mm Lenses and Shift Lenses for Nikon and Canon. Canon users should see Canon Ultrawides.

Lens sample variation

Build quality of lenses can vary , with the possibility for a poorly-assembled lens very high, see the Brand-new Blur pages.
