Photography Life Review Summary: I went into this expecting to bash on a poor defenseless kit lens but came away with quite the crush on this offering. The 16-80mm is a great all-around lens for static subjects. It encompasses a 5x zoom range with an equivalent of 24-120mm which covers most subjects except super wide landscapes and long shots of wildlife or sports.

Can use this on a Zfc? The AF-S DX 16-80mm f/2.8-4E ED VR on a Zfc, via the Adapter FTZ ii..?
Has anyone used this for IR photography?
I am especially interested in how it compares to the 16-85 for IR shots?
I’ve been using it for a few months now and I feel it is as good or better than the 24-120 which I had on a previous D750. I never like variable apertures but I can live with 2.5-4. I have a couple of sample shots I had hoped to post here but there does not seem to be an option to do that and I don’t know how to do link. It’s a frog on a lily pad from a distance of about 10 feet at 80mm (120 equiv) and then significantly cropped with no apparent loss of sharpness. Also, I have the new 300mm and 1.4 tele. Also awesome. I have decided to get the 70-200 to fill the gap between the 16-8-0 (24-120 equiv) and the 300 prime. Both FF lenses accept the 1.4 which provides some pretty flexible coverage.I see the new 70-300 is coming but I was disappointed to read that it will be a 4.5-6.3 aperture.
I’m asking the same question. This lens was probably overlooked when it was released, but I becomes very important with D500 appearance.
I liked 24-120mm on FF, and this is pretty much same focal distance on DX frames.
