For those with D7000 and 16-85mm VR
Apr 23, 2011

I´ll be getting a D7000 next week and from many tests it seems that the best walkaround (Nikkor) lens for it is the 16-85mm VR. At least the Photozone tests indicate that´s the best "normal" APS-C zoom from Nikon at this point, with better figures than even the 17-55 f/2.8 in the common AF and aperture ranges.

It looks also like the natural upgrade from the very good 18-70mm I have used for many years as the standard kit with the D80, a combination that I have liked a lot and that has produced some great images for me, and most very good.

I´d like to hear from those using that lens with the D7000, re AF speed, VR and, obviously, color, contrast and detail.

Thanks in advance, Renato.
