The AF-S DX NIKKOR 16-85mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR from Nikon is a versatile standard zoom lens designed for DX-format F-mount cameras, providing a 24-127.5mm equivalent focal length range. Here are the key features and specifications:

Focal Length:

Standard zoom lens designed for DX-format F-mount cameras.

Provides a 24-127.5mm equivalent focal length range.


Variable f/3.5-5.6 maximum aperture range for flexibility in different shooting conditions.

Optical Design:

Three aspherical elements reduce spherical aberrations and distortion, ensuring sharp imagery with accurate rendering.

Two extra-low dispersion (ED) elements greatly reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations, contributing to greater clarity and color accuracy.


Super Integrated Coating applied to individual elements suppresses internal reflections, flare, and ghosting for improved contrast and color accuracy in strong lighting conditions.

Image Stabilization:

VR II (Vibration Reduction) image stabilization compensates for 3.5 stops of camera shake, enabling sharper handheld shooting.

Autofocus System:

Silent Wave Motor (SWM) affords quick, quiet, and precise autofocus performance.

Full-time manual focus override allows for manual adjustments without switching to manual mode.

Internal focusing design maintains the overall length of the lens during use and promotes faster focusing speeds.


Rounded seven-blade diaphragm promotes a pleasing out-of-focus quality for shallow depth of field techniques.
