Further readings for the Nikon AF-S Nikkor 16-35mm f/4G ED VR
To provide photographers with a broader perspective about mobiles, lenses and cameras, here are links to articles, reviews, and analyses of photographic equipment produced by DxOMark, renown websites, magazines or blogs.
A wide-angle is a must-have lens for landscape and architectural photographers, with a versatile wide-angle zoom often favored by those shooting press, weddings, events, or street photography. That there are different DSLR sensor sizes (35mm full-frame or cropped APS-C) means that it’s important to buy a lens designed specifically for each format. This is especially true for wide-angle zoom lenses, because although a full-frame format wide-angle will still work on APS-C, the crop means it’s not really wide-angle.
Tamron’s popular 24-70mm f2.8 VC model, the maker has added a high-speed ultra-wide 15-30mm f2.8 version, complete with stabilization and a sonic-type AF motor. Read on to find out how well this new model performs.
In this second installment of lens recommendations for the Nikon D810, we’ve been analyzing the best performing models for landscape and wildlife photography. Admittedly when it comes to fast-paced photography there are better choices in Nikon’s range but there’s always a case for high-resolution imagery but the Nikon D810 also serves to highlight the best performing models, and particularly in the longer focal lengths where it’s more common (and often more practical) to use cameras with lower pixel densities.
Aimed at professional studio and landscape photographers, the full-frame 36-Mpix D800E with its modified AA filter effectively increasing resolution over the standard D800 model is the closest 35mm full-frame camera yet to rival larger formats in rendering fine detail. If you’re undecided over which of the two models to choose, we’ve analyzed the image quality of the Nikon D800E with over 100 different lenses to discover how well this groundbreaking camera performs.
Sigma’s move away from the value-end of the market has resulted in some very high-quality yet sensitively priced lenses such as the full-frame 35mm f1.4 HSM A and this lens, the APS-C format 18-35mm f1.8 DC HSM. While we’ve previously reviewed the Canon mount version, Sigma has just released the lens in Nikon mount and we were curious to see if the performance could be repeated. Read on to find out.
Introduced in 2007 alongside the AF-S Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8G ED and Nikon’s first full-frame DSLR – the 12-megapixel Nikon D3 – this lens was a first of its kind and set new standards for image quality for ultra-wide angle lenses. How does this lens perform on demanding high-resolution bodies, such as the 36-MPix Nikon D800? DxOMark has the answer.
Very wide-angle lenses allow photographers to produce an image composed of a large number of objects and to frame very large subjects (such as buildings) at close proximity, and to photograph objects on different geometrical planes that can be very far apart. Such lenses also accentuate perspective, with the most noticeable result being the distortion of straight lines.
Launched in spring 2010, the Nikon AF-S Nikkor 16-35mm f/4G ED VR was a very good surprise for Nikon enthusiasts who previously had only a choice between the very good but expensive (and heavy) AF-S Zoom-Nikkor 17-35mm f/2.8D IF-ED and the Nikon AF-S Nikkor 14-24mm f/2.8G ED.
Thank you for your interest and support. There is a very slight difference in the measurement results for those two devices, but nothing noticeable on final images. Please note that we provide rounded scores, differences are sometimes thin.
