16-85 what is so special about it?
Apr 23, 2008

to justify £400 price bracket? Most of its siblings it terms of aperture size, (eg 18-55VR, 18-70, 18-135), sell for half of the price of 16-85. The nearest match in terms of price is the 18-200.

The reviews I have seen so far do say that it is optically good (or better than the ones I mentioned above), better built, faster/quieter autofocus, but it is still a rather slow lens with VR. Do you think that is worth the money Nikon are asking or are they just taking advantage of its novelty? I noticed prices of 18-200 have dropped recently....
