Inspiring views of your world.

Take photos and videos that are anything but ordinary with this state-of-the-art 16-80mm DX-format zoom lens. With a fast f/2.8-4 aperture, VR image stabilization and Nikon's advanced lens technology, it covers wide-angle to portrait views with absolutely brilliant image quality. An ideal lens for documenting daily life, conveying a sense of place, blogging, low light, HD video and much more.

An everyday lens that's anything but ordinary

Meet the world's lightest 5x zoom lens with an f/2.8-4 aperture, which is excellent for softening foregrounds or backgrounds and highlighting your subject. On a DX-format camera, it's zoom range is equivalent to Nikon's 24-120mm FX lens (35mm format), a staple in many pro camera bags.

A new level of DX-format performance

Unleash the power of your high-resolution Nikon DSLR. Nano Crystal Coat virtually eliminates glare, while Extra-low Dispersion Glass and Aspherical elements reduce colour aberration and enhance sharpness and contrast. Capture vibrant colours, rich tonality and a level of detail that's staggering.

4 stops of Vibration Reduction

In low light situations, the 16-80mm's VR image stabilization lets you shoot handheld up to 4 shutter speeds slower to gather more of the available light without causing blur. There's even a specialized Tripod VR mode, a first for this zoom range, that eliminates the effects of tripod vibration.

High-speed electromagnetic diaphragm

Nikon's DX and FX DSLRs can freeze action with fast continuous shooting speeds; this lens can keep up. A specialized electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism operates in precise sync with the camera's shutter for reliable exposure control during high-speed sequences.

Nikon's innovative protective fluorine coat

Making it easier to wipe off water, dirt and smudges, the front and rear lens elements have Nikon's exclusive fluorine coat. This extraordinary protective coating technology has to be seen to be believed.

Whilst this is a brilliant and perfect addition to the Nikon DX Lens range, we should point out that due to the electronic aperture actuators, this lens is not compatible with a number of cameras; including:

  • Anything film
  • D1 Series
  • D2 Series
  • D200

Fabulous every day lens... was concerned with some reviews re quality of construction but I find it satisfactory and performance on my Nikon 7200 is brilliant. I prefer it to a 24-120 F4 lens

I'm very happy with this lens. Significantly lighter than my previous 17-55 Very useful focal range as a general walkabout lens. Nice and sharp with pretty fast focus that needed no fine tuning. Expensive, but I was reluctant to buy non nikon as I wanted guaranteed compatibility with future cameras.

High-quality lens. Feels good in hands, well balanced, not light and not heavy, just right. Using it in pair with my Nikon D7100. I love thecontrast and sharpness of theimages. Highly recommend it to anyone who looking for wide angle as well for the middle zoom lens - this one will be a perfect...

This is an excellent lens that now stays on my Nikon D500 much of the time. When I first bought the D500, I elected to get the body only. In my mind, the 16 - 80mm had two things going against it: First, it was a DX lens, meaning that it would not be good for my full-frame D810 body.

B&H Photo

Purchased this lens for my recent Danube River Cruise and it more then met my expectations. Mounted on my Nikon D7200 body it made a relatively compact and light travel combination. The 16-80mm on the cropped sensor camera is equivalent to 24-120mm on full frame, a very useful range.
