One of Nikon's best landscape lens

Comments about 16-35mm f/4G ED-VR AF-S Wide-Angle Zoom Lens With Nikon USA Warranty:
I use this lens mostly for outdoor shots, landscape and cityscape photos. Focus is fast and sure, images captured are mostly sharp but distortion is quite obvious at the widest settings. Overall, the lens compares very well with my Nikkor 14-24mm lens and I can use my 77mm filters with the 16-35mm lens!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Glad I picked this one

I got this lens because most of my pictures are architectural or landscape, so I needed a wider angle than my 50mm. Glad I chose this one, it feels sturdy, rugged, responds quickly with autofocus and I can finally get the whole subject in the pictures. The only thing I have to get used to is its weight, it's a good wrist workout. [...] Way to go Buydig, I will receommend you to all of my photo friends.

This is a very sharp lens that works great on full-frame (D700) Nikon cameras. The VR is very handy to extend the shooting to darker static images, eg. past sunset landscapes, night-time city scapes. I didn't give it 5 stars because of its bulk and particularly because of the distortion at the wide end of the focal range. I'm using this with the 70-300VR as my "light" travel kit with the D700.
Happy as a clam.

I have not used it much since I got it. So my review is not all inclusive and helpful. Can only comment on the quality of the lens.
This is a very sharp wide angle lens.

Lens is good for landscape/scenery. A little heavy. But very sharp lens.
Fantastic wide angle lens

Nice lens for landscape photography. Built in VR helps in low light condition. Sharp lens. Highly recommended.
