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. 

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 colour aberration and enhance sharpness and contrast. Capture vibrant colours, rich tonality and a level of detail that's staggering.

4 stops of Vibration Reduction**

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

High-speed electromagnetic diaphragm

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

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.

Among 5x normal zoom lenses with the f/2.8 maximum aperture at the maximum wide-angle position, compatible with lens-interchangeable digital SLR cameras employing APS-C-format image sensor, available as of June 3, 2015. Statement based on Nikon research.

**Based on CIPA Standard. This value is achieved when DX-format compatible lenses are attached to a DX-format digital SLR camera and zoom lenses are set at the maximum telephoto position.
