Nikon’s latest standard zoom could be the lens DX-format users have been waiting for. Phil Hall puts it to the test to see if the wait has been worth it
Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 16-80mm f2.8-4E ED VR – Autofocusing
Thanks to the use of Nikon’s Silent Wave Motor, focusing noise is virtually inaudible. When partnered with a D7200, focusing speed is also nice and snappy, locking on to focus quickly and accurately under a range of conditions, from early morning landscapes to fast-paced action shots.
Focusing isn’t quite as instantaneous when jumping from either extreme of the focusing range, but it’s still more than satisfactory.
