Just received my 16-35 VR, want to check sample variation
Jan 30, 2014

Hi everyone,

Today I received my Nikkor 16-35 VR. I am planning to use it on my D800 but I want to make sure that i've got a good copy.

I never had issues with Nikon glass regarding bad samples in the past, but from reading the forums, it is said that the 16-35 VR good be the first lens that I must get somewhat worried.

So what's the best method to test this lens for sample variation?

And what should a good sample of the 16-35 VR be capable of?
