Tack sharp 16-85mm (6 high res photos)
Feb 14, 2011

A couple winter scenes and close ups that show the tack sharp quality of the 16-85mm. Many people write it off as just a more expensive version of the 18-105mm that doesn't offer additional qualities that make it stand apart. From my experience with both lenses, the 16-85mm is built better, has the wide angle advantage, and is sharper in some cases (better corner resolution). The 16-85 is a $600 lens that preforms like one much more expensive.

These photos and more can be found on my Flickr page (link in signature).

EDIT: I posted this in the Nikon D90-40 / D7000 - D3000 forums (as opposed to the lens forum) because many owners of these cameras are debated between the 16-85 and 18-105 just like I once did. I just wanted to address that before it came up in the replies)
