Re: need advice about a lens with D500

I have both DX and FX Nikon bodies.  I've used the 24-70 (non VR version) on my D700 with excellent results.  But I find that to be a really big and heavy lens, especially when carrying it for a day of event shooting.  I've used the 16-80 on my D300 and D500 and have been very pleased with it.  Good image quality and not overly large and heavy.

I bought my 16-80 along with my D500 so got the combo price.  It is probably available as reconditioned or on the used market at a much better price than if purchased new.  (I have bought several lenses used - no problems.)
