Just sharing an image taken with the Nikon 16-35mm f4 VRII lens at 16mm. I had to dust it off since I have not used it in a year or so. (shame on me). 

 

D800E with Nikon 16-35mm f4 VR @ 16mm, f6.3, 1/400, ISO 100

Thanks Jim. It is a great landscape lens and it has a very good resistance to lens flare. This was a hand-held shot with VR off.  :)

I have this lens, love it. You can get real close to things with it as well.

Nice shot.

Thanks, Dennis.

Thanks Dennis. I have not had the chance to shoot a lot of landscape which is why this lens looks almost brand new since I bought it 4 years ago.

Thanks Gary. I stopped it down to f6.3 in Aperture priority mode. I just let the camera do it's thing. I've always wondered what kind of results I would get if I had the 14-24mm f2.8 lens.

An extra 2mm wider! with the 14-24  <_<

Colour looks about the same, sure the sky would be different though, I have no regrets

Unfortunately very expensive if you are looking at ND filers, and even then, no big stopper

I have that lens paired with D7100. It is my walk around lens. Stays on camera most of the time.

Glenn, I don't think you'd gain much with a 14-24. How often do you even shoot at F4? I have a 16mm f2.8 that has probably never shot a picture at f2.8.. I like the sharpness of the 16-35 for printing. I've only had the 16-35 for about a year but I really like it. You just need to get it out and use it more!

Arlon,

 

The 14-24 is supposed to be much sharper.  I too have the 16-35 and really like it as well, but like Glenn, I have often wondered if I should have gone with the more expensive lens.

 

The possibility of filter use was the deal breaker.

 

BTW, nice image, Glenn! ;)

I haven't really seen any sharpness issues with the 16-35, in fact, I use it over my prime now. I only used the 14-24 for a short time, but in what I used them for, they were just as sharp. I went with 16-35 because of filters and I can go to 35. I don't really need 2.8 for a wide.


Thanks, Dennis.

I know that with the D800E on a print that's 2ft on the short side, the detail's are very sharp.  I did a lot of soul searching and the filter issue was the biggest one for me too. I like the ability to use an ND or polarizer for some subjects. I don't think either one would be a bad choice. I used my 28-300mm a lot more in this last trip than the 16-35mm BUT 2/3 of the pics that are hanging on a wall right now were shot with the 16-35mm.. Something about those extra wide shots that really speaks to me.
