Re: D7100 and 16-85

Being an old-fashioned sort, I am leery of zooms with that  much range. I have the 16-85 on my D7000 all the time. And am constantly surprised by the QR.  A bit factor with any lens is max f-stop. At f3.5 you can expect quick auto focus with the 16-85. Even in indoor lighting.

If you are not in a hurry, Nikon filed a patent last year for an improved version. With constant f4 at every focal length. I can't recall whether it will have Nano coating, but that would be something worth waiting for. Congratulations on your 7100.
