The Nikon 16-85mm f/3.5-5.6G VR

The Nikon 16-85mm is a compact walk-around zoom for DX sensor cameras. It features second generation vibration reduction, offering four stops of stabilization. It's a G-type lens with aperture set electronically from the camera and features extra-low-dispersion glass elements, silent wave motor, and a 7-blade, rounded diaphragm.

The 16-35mm makes a great general-purpose walk-around lens, especially for outdoor use.

Roger's Take

There are some great Nikon lenses for DX shooters, and I think this is one. Yes, it’s a variable aperture lens, and at f/5.6 has some limitations. But it’s sharp as a tack and has excellent four-stop VR in a reasonably small size, with a nonrotating front element so CP filters work perfectly.

If you’re looking for a high-quality walk-around lens at a reasonable price, you really won’t do any better than this.
