Product Overview

Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 16-80mm F2.8-4E ED VR is a standard zoom lens for Nikon F-mount. It covers the APS-C image circle. Introduced by Nikon in 2015, it has 17 elements in 13 groups.
Like most zoom lenses, the Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 16-80mm F2.8-4E ED VR is externally-zooming. Unfortunately, Nikon has opted to omit weather sealing for this lens, so owners should pay extra attention when shooting in incremental weathers.
A standard zoom lens with relatively bright maximum aperture, the Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 16-80mm F2.8-4E ED VR can be a key piece in a photographer's arsenal, though some may prefer prime lenses in this focal range. The lens is also stabilized, making it even easier to use for videos and stills alike.
