In part 2 of our review of the best lenses for the Nikon D3400, we’re looking at the performance of zoom lenses. More versatile than a fixed focal length prime lens, zoom lenses are often preferred by entry-level DSLR shooters, thanks to the convenience of having a range of focal lengths in a single lens. Image quality isn’t quite as good on a zoom compared to a prime, however, with generally lower lens metric scores recorded in our tests, although some zooms come pretty close to primes. The physics of constructing a zoom lens means that very wide maximum apertures such as f/1.4 or f/1.8 are also rare, although some of the best performers in this review boast wide f/1.8 or f/2 maximum apertures.
In part 2 of our “best lenses for the Nikon D500” review, we look at some of the highest-scoring DX-format zoom lenses. There are many more DX zoom lenses available for the D500 compared to primes. Zooms are a more popular lens choice for many APS-C shooters who are often looking for a more convenient and versatile multi-purpose lens.

HI, I have just upgraded from d7000 to d800. Since it is DX Lense, do i loose a lot other than the vingenting happens at certain mm? Having spent $ on d800, if the quality of 11-16 on d800 is poor, i wouldnt mind spending extra bugs for upgrading the lense. Waiting for your valuable comments as usual.
there is no need to worry too much about this awesome Tokina on full frame. I have the same combo and always use the 16mm end on D800, and it just works perfectly. You need to stop down for landscape though, but the center sharpness is still fantastic wide open! Since this is the only possibility an ultrawide that can take filter on Nikon FX and works well in low light, this is one of the lens that I bring whenever I travel, the other one is the Tokina Macro 100 2.8.
