High Quality Zoom Lens for DX Format DSLRs

The Nikon AF-S DX 16-80mm f2.8-4E ED VR is an excellent standard zoom lens to pair with your APS-C sensor Nikon DSLR.

Highly Versatile Zoom Range

Featuring a highly versatile 5x zoom range of 24-120mm (FX/35mm equivalent focal lengths), the lens is capable of capturing wide scenes, landscape and group to portraits and distant sports and action. A close focus distance down to 35cm at all focal lengths lets you shoot macro-style images.

Bright Aperture at Widest Setting

With a bright constant aperture of F2.8 this lens is capable of being used in lower light situations while maintaining lower ISOs, or using faster shutter speeds to freeze the action.

Excellent Optical Formula

An optical formula that includes aspherical lenses and ED glass elements achieves a high level of optical quality. A Super Integrated Coating and Nano Crystal Coating ensure gorgeous colour rendition and minimise any unwanted flare and ghosting. Additionally, a fluorine coating on both the front and rear lens surfaces – a first for DX-format lenses – protects from dirt, dust and moisture.

Fast and Accurate Autofocus

The AF-S Silent Wave Autofocus motor enables high speed focus and acquisition that is quiet and extremely accurate. An advanced electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism ensures auto-exposure is stable and well controlled even in high speed continuous shooting.

Optical Image Stabilisation

The Nikkor 16-80 mm F2.8-4 AF-S DX lens features Nikon’s Vibration Reduction technology which allows users to handhold photographs with a 4 stop advantage stabilising images while using slower shutter speed.
