Re: Which lens for Nikon D7100?

I own the 16-85. It's a great lens.

But that doesn't necessarily mean its the right lens for you.

I bought it because I wanted something wider than the kit lens as my walkaround lens, because I enjoy landscapes and travel shots where a wider shot is needed.

The alternative would be the 18-105. If you do more portraits than landscapes, this might be the lens for you. It is half the price, lighter, smaller and has more range in the telephoto area. Its almost as sharp.

There are many threads about these two in the Nikon Lens forum, settle down with a coffee and have a nice read.
