Overview

AF-S DX NIKKOR 16-80MM F/2.8-4E ED VR

Ascend to a new level of photography with the AF-S DX NIKKOR 16-80mm f/2.8-4E ED VR, the world’s lightest*1 DX-format 16-80mm*2 f/2.8-4, 5x normal zoom lens that delivers impressive optical performance. A first for DX-format lenses, the AF-S DX NIKKOR 16-80mm f/2.8-4E ED VR incorporates Nano Crystal Coat technology that reduces flares and ghosting, an electromagnetic aperture mechanism that allows for stable exposure control, and a fluorine coat that effectively repels dust, water, grease and dirt. With the inclusion of a 4-stop Vibration Reduction (VR) system*3, allowing for sharper images and videos in a wide range of conditions, the AF-S DX NIKKOR 16-80mm f/2.8-4E ED VR is an excellent high performance lens for everyday use and an integral component to your photography arsenal.

Sharpness you can rely on

The AF-S DX NIKKOR 16-80mm f/2.8-4E ED VR is a high performance 5x normal zoom lens featuring f/2.8 aperture at the maximum wide-angle position, resulting in a fast zoom lens ideal for capturing a vast range of shooting situations. In addition, a Nano Crystal Coat, aspherical lens and ED glass elements come together to achieve high optical performance. The Nano Crystal Coat, a first for DX-format lenses, is an adaptation of a coating featuring nano-sized crystal particles that effectively reduces flares and ghosting, so you capture sharper imagery with every shot.

Always on the move

At approximately 480g, the AF-S DX NIKKOR 16-80mm f/2.8-4E ED VR is the world’s lightest*1, DX-format compatible, 16-80mm*2 lens and is an ideal everyday companion that gives you the freedom of greater manoeuvrability to capture your creative vision. In a first for DX-format lenses, this lightweight and durable lens has a fluorine coat applied on the outer surfaces of the extreme front and rear lens elements. A unique NIKKOR lens technology, this fluorine coat effectively repels dust, water droplets, grease or dirt for easy removal, giving you the freedom to conquer the elements with total peace of mind.

Forefront of innovation

A Vibration Reduction (VR) system is incorporated to provide an effect equivalent to a shutter speed 4.0 stops faster in NORMAL mode*3, enabling you to shoot sharper and crisper handheld shots. In another first for DX-format lenses, the AF-S DX NIKKOR 16-80mm f/2.8-4E ED VR incorporates an electromagnetic aperture mechanism, which is an aperture blade unit with drive mechanism that is controlled via electric signals from the camera body. This mechanism allows for stable and reliable auto-exposure control even during high-speed continuous shooting, wherever you go.

Inspiring views of your world.

Take photos and videos that are anything but ordinary with this state-of-the-art 16-80mm DX-format zoom lens. With a fast f/2.8-4 aperture, VR image stabilization and Nikon's advanced lens technology, it covers wide-angle to portrait views with absolutely brilliant image quality. An ideal lens for documenting daily life, conveying a sense of place, blogging, low light, HD video and much more.

Ultra-light, ultra-versatile

An everyday lens that's anything but ordinary
Meet the world's lightest 5x zoom lens with an f/2.8-4 aperture, which is excellent for softening foregrounds or backgrounds and highlighting your subject. On a DX-format camera, it's zoom range is equivalent to Nikon's 24-120mm FX lens (35mm format), a staple in many pro camera bags.

Pro-grade image quality

A new level of DX-format performance
Unleash the power of your high-resolution Nikon DSLR. Nano Crystal Coat virtually eliminates glare, while Extra-low Dispersion Glass and Aspherical elements reduce color aberration and enhance sharpness and contrast. Capture vibrant colors, rich tonality and a level of detail that's staggering.

Rock steady

4 stops of Vibration Reduction
In low light situations, the 16-80mm's VR image stabilization lets you shoot handheld up to 4 shutter speeds slower to gather more of the available light without causing blur. There's even a specialized Tripod VR mode, a first for this zoom range, that eliminates the effects of tripod vibration.

Ultra-fast precision

High-speed electromagnetic diaphragm
Nikon's DX and FX DSLRs can freeze action with fast continuous shooting speeds; this lens can keep up. A specialized electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism operates in precise sync with the camera's shutter for reliable exposure control during high-speed sequences.

Nonstick glass

Nikon's innovative protective fluorine coat
Making it easier to wipe off water, dirt and smudges, the front and rear lens elements have Nikon's exclusive fluorine coat. This extraordinary protective coating technology has to be seen to be believed.

Features:

  • AS

    AS stands for Aspherical lens elements. This type of lens utilizes non-spherical surfaces on either one or both sides of the glass in order to eliminate certain types of lens aberration.
  • Electromagnetic Diaphragm Mechanism

    An electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism in the lens barrel provides highly accurate electronic diaphragm or aperture blade control when using auto exposure during continuous shooting. With conventional D/G type lenses, the diaphragm blades are operated by mechanical linkage levers.
  • ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) Glass

    An optical glass developed by Nikon that is used with normal optical glass in telephoto lenses to obtain optimum correction of chromatic aberrations.
  • IF Lens

    A NIKKOR lens in which only the internal lens group shifts during focusing. Thus, IF NIKKORS do not change in size during AF operation, allowing for compact, lightweight lenses capable of closer focusing distances. These lenses will be designated with the abbreviation IF on the lens barrel.
  • Nano Crystal Coat

    An anti-reflective coating developed by Nikon that virtually eliminates internal lens element reflections across a wide range of wavelengths. Nano Crystal Coat solves ghost effects caused by red light and effectively reduces ghost and flare caused by light entering the lens diagonally.
  • Silent Wave Motor

    AF-S NIKKOR lenses feature Nikon’s Silent Wave Motor (SWM), which represents a significant advance in AF lens technology. SWM uses ultrasonic vibrations—rather than a gear system—to focus the lens, providing incredibly smooth, silent and precise autofocus operation.
  • Super Integrated Coating

    Nikon Super Integrated Coating is Nikon's term for its multilayer coating of the optical elements in NIKKOR lenses.
  • Vibration Reduction

    A Nikon in-lens technology that improves image stability by automatically compensating for camera shake. Lenses that offer VR will feature the abbreviation VR on the lens barrel.
