Definitive wide-angle zoom lens with VR II image stabilization.
This high-performance, f/4 fixed aperture, wide-angle zoom lens is perfect for interiors, landscapes, cityscapes, general photography and establishing shots when recording HD video. It covers a remarkably broad range, from ultra-wide 16mm to standard 35mm, and delivers superior sharpness and color. Plus, Nikon’s VR II (Vibration Reduction) enables blurfree handheld shooting at up to 4-times slower shutter speeds.
Nikon VR II image stabilization
From daylight to low light, inside or out, near or far, your creative bases are covered with the astonishing versatility of the AF-S NIKKOR 16–35mm f/4G ED VR. Nikon’s VR II (Vibration Reduction) image stabilization enables handheld shooting at up to 4 shutter speeds slower than would otherwise be possible. You can leave the tripod at home and create with spontaneity and confidence, even when lighting is less than ideal.
Superior stills and HD video in any setting
AF-S NIKKOR 16–35mm f/4G ED VR includes some of Nikon’s most advanced lens technologies for exceptional performance in a broad range of shooting situations. From its flare and ghosting reducing Nano Crystal Coat (N) to its ultra-fast, ultra-quiet Silent Wave Motor (SWM) internal focusing motor, the AF-S NIKKOR 16–35mm f/4G ED VR is an advanced lens for today’s advanced D-SLR cameras.
A Nikon in-lens technology that improves image stability by automatically compensating for camera shake. Lenses that offer VR will feature the abbreviation VR on the lens barrel.
Silent Wave Motor
AF-S NIKKOR lenses feature Nikon’s Silent Wave Motor (SWM), which represents a significant advance in AF lens technology. SWM uses ultrasonic vibrations - rather than a gear system - to focus the lens, providing incredibly smooth, silent and precise autofocus operation.
Nano Crystal Coat
An anti-reflective coating developed by Nikon that virtually eliminates internal lens element reflections across a wide range of wavelengths. Nano Crystal Coat solves ghost effects caused by red light and effectively reduces ghost and flare caused by light entering the lens diagonally.
ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) Glass
An optical glass developed by Nikon that is used with normal optical glass in telephoto lenses to obtain optimum correction of chromatic aberrations.
AS stands for Aspherical lens elements. This type of lens utilizes non-spherical surfaces on either one or both sides of the glass in order to eliminate certain types of lens aberration.
Select NIKKOR lenses have a focusing mode which allows switching from automatic to manual focusing with virtually no lag time by simply turning the focusing ring on the lens. This makes it possible to seamlessly switch to fine manual focusing while looking through the viewfinder.
