Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 16-85mmNikon announced the new AF-S DX NIKKOR 16-85mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR lens, which offers Nikon digital SLR photographers exceptional wide-angle capability along with superb telephoto versatility. The wide-ratio zoom makes this new lens suitable for a broad range of shooting situations, including indoor and outdoor events and portraits and scenery, making it ideal for everyday use. It incorporates several of Nikon’s most advanced lens design attributes such as Extra Low Dispersion (ED) glass, Silent Wave Motor technology (SWM) and Nikon VR (Vibration Reduction image stabilization), delivering the outstanding optical performance that has made NIKKOR lenses the choice of so many professional photographers.

"The new AF-S DX NIKKOR 16-85mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR lens fulfills a need among Nikon digital SLR customers for a compact wide ratio zoom lens that offers a dramatic wide angle perspective, up to a practical and useful telephoto view, as well as advanced optical features," said Edward Fasano, general manager for marketing, SLR Systems Products at Nikon, Inc. “Whether on vacation or on assignment, the new 16-85mm lens’ versatility and remarkable image integrity are sure to make it one of Nikon’s most popular advanced performance Zoom-NIKKOR lenses.

The AF-S DX NIKKOR 16-85mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR is a compact lens that offers an array of versatile Nikon technologies, including VR II (Vibration Reduction II image stabilization), which allows photographers to shoot at shutter speeds up to four stops slower than would otherwise be possible, while dramatically reducing the image blur caused by camera shake in handheld photography. The lens also features Nikon’s compact Silent Wave Motor (SWM) technology for quiet, fast and accurate autofocus performance that ensures every moment is captured crisply.

This digitally optimized lens also features two ED glass elements and three aspherical elements that provide higher resolution and superior contrast, while minimizing chromatic aberration. Additionally, Nikon's Super Integrated Coating reduces instances of lens flare and ghosting for sharp, faithful images.

Configured for optimum performance on Nikon DX-format digital SLR systems and compatible with Nikon's newest flagship model, the FX-format D3, the new 16-85mm f/3.5-5.6 lens offers a 5.3x zoom range, and a perspective equivalent to that created by a 24-127.5mm lens on a 35mm film camera.

The AF-S DX NIKKOR 16-85mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR lens is scheduled to be available at Nikon authorized dealers beginning in March 2008 at an estimated selling price of $649. For more information, please visit
