Skilled photojournalists and talented amateurs have grown increasingly appreciative of the visual versatility afforded by ultrawide- to-wide-angle zoom lenses. These focal lengths broke new ground in the 1990s with offerings such as the AF Zoom-NIKKOR 20-35mm f/2.8 and its advanced amateur counterpart, the 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5D IF-ED.
Now, an all-new ultra-wide zoom featuring a fixed f/4 maximum aperture, Nano Crystal Coat, ED glass and Nikon VR II (4-stop) image stabilization offers discriminating Nikon digital SLR photographers an ideal blend of versatility and high performance priced well below its "pro" equivalent.
The AF-S NIKKOR 16-35mm f/4G ED VR is sure to satisfy the needs of a broad range of shooters and, therefore, is poised to build sales and profits.
Designed to meet the performance demands of the larger Nikon FX format image sensor. It is, however, fully compatible with Nikon DX-format digital SLR cameras.
