This versatile wide-angle zoom lens is perfect for a range of scenarios, including travel photography. On DX format DSLRs it provides the 35mm equivalent focal range of 24-52.5mm. Capture more in your frame with wide-angle capacity, ideal for shooting landscapes and cityscapes.
Utilising ultrasonic vibrations rather than a gear system to focus the lens, Nikon's silent wave motor (SWM) provides incredibly smooth, silent and precise autofocus. Internal focus achieves fast and quiet autofocusing without changing the length of the lens, retaining subject-working distance through the focus range. Fast, accurate and quiet autofocus is easily achieved, ideal for when you need to be candid and quick. This is ideal for wildlife photography or when you’re shooting an event.
Nikon VR II vibration reduction is engineered specifically for each Nikon VR lens. The VR II image stabilisation system detects vertical and horizontal movement and neutralises it to eliminate any blur caused by camera shake. This results in dramatically sharper still images and also enables clarity and stillness in videos in a variety of situations. Image stabilisation is especially helpful in low light situations when slower shutter speeds are required and camera shake becomes more apparent.
With two extra-low dispersion (ED) elements combined with three aspherical lens elements, the Nikkor AF-S 16-35mm f4G ED VR lens offers superior sharpness and colour correction. The 17 lens elements in 12 groups reduces chromatic aberrations such as halo effects and flaring, even at the widest aperture settings. The result is sharp, high contrast images with minimal distortion.
The nano crystal lens coating in this lens reduces ghosting and interior flare across a wide range of wavelengths for even greater image clarity. It does this by minimising reflection in its anti-reflective coating.
Switching between manual and auto modes makes it quick and easy to adjust your focus with just the flick of a switch. Manual focus override gives you control over focal points, even when in AF mode.
The rounded 9-blade diaphragm renders a natural appearance of out-of-focus image elements. Achieve soft bokeh, producing clear detail while softening the background with an aesthetic blur. The result is natural-looking images with a soft mood, ideal for weddings, nature photography and portraiture.

This lens has a 77mm filter thread, so we suggest adding a protection filter to protect it from scratches and fingerprints. We also suggest keeping this lens in a camera bag or lens pouch when not in use, which will help protect the lens from bumps and knocks while you're out and about.
The lens hood is always handy to have on the lens at all times for two reasons – it helps keep stray light from entering the lens, and it will help protect your lens from any knocks or bumps.
