Nikkor AF-S 16-35mm f/4 G ED VR

Nikkor 16-35mm f/4G ED AF-S VR

Nikon announces the world's first ultre-wide angle zoom lens with VR for full frame sensor (FX format) Nikon cameras. This new lens is an affordable alternative to professional lenses, like the AF-S Nikkor 17-35 mm f/2.8D IF-ED or the AF-S Nikkor 14-24 mm f/2.8G ED. Built in second generation Vibration Reduction technology allows slower shutter speeds by up to four stops. The new Nikkor AF-S 16-35 mm f/4 G ED VR sports two ED glass elements, three aspherical glass elements, and Nikons proprietary Nano Crystal coating to minimize reflections, distortion and aberration while maximizing image quality, even at maximum aperture.

The Silent Wave Motor makes the lens an ideal choice for low noise environment, while thanks to the robust magnesium body and the weather sealing it is suitable to challenging environments as well.

The new AF-S NIKKOR 16-35MM F/4G ED VR: Defines a new class of NIKKOR.

Amsterdam, The Netherlands, February 9, 2010 – Nikon Europe today announces the AF-S NIKKOR 16-35MM F/4G ED VR, the world’s first ultra-wide angle zoom lens with VR for FX-format cameras. The new lens offers an affordable and practical proposition for general photography with FX-format cameras such as the D700.

Zurab Kiknadze, Product Manager Lenses, Accessories & Software, Nikon Europe says: “The AF-S NIKKOR 16-35MM F/4G ED VR covers all bases for wide angle shooting and addresses market feedback for a more affordable alternative to the professional AF-S Zoom-Nikkor 17-35mm f/2.8D IF-ED or more recent AF-S NIKKOR 14-24mm f/2.8G ED  ultra-wide-angle lens”.

Sharper handheld images at slow shutter speeds

The AF-S NIKKOR 16-35MM F/4G ED VR is the world’s first ultra-wide angle zoom lens to feature Vibration Reduction technology, providing the ability to shoot at shutter speeds up to four stops slower. The application of VR complements the f/4 maximum aperture when shooting in low light.

Class leading image quality

The new lens’ complex optical design features Nikon’s exclusive anti-reflection Nano Crystal coat, two ED glass elements and no less than three aspherical glass elements to minimize distortion and aberration, even at maximum aperture. The VR II system and Silent Wave Motor deliver extremely quiet, discrete operation and the nine bladed rounded diaphragm renders delightful bokeh. 

Built for everyday use

The AF-S NIKKOR 16-35MM F/4G ED VR balances well with more compact FX format cameras such as the D700 and is consequently built to withstand the demands of everyday shooting. The robust magnesium construction and weather sealing will make it an ideal choice for the adventurous enthusiast and professional photographer. It comes complete with durable hood HB-23, and soft pouch. It is scheduled to go on sale on February 19, 2010.
