    Everyone's asking the same question (usually in PM).

    I don't feel I'm good enough to comment on a lens and sway someone's purchasing decision. I like it heaps more than my old 18-200VR though. The 16-85 is sharp to my eyes even pretty wide open. Whereas the 18-200 always looked a little blurry below F7.1

    The 16-85 is almost always limitted to a min apperture of F/5 ish though as I mostly shoot above 40mm at my kids.

    I can say that a photog I really respect said my SOOC 16mm F3.5 landscape test shots had kept great sharpness to the edge of the frame.

    It's pretty expensive new and there are few if any second hand ones.

    16mm is nice, 85 is far enough for me and I like my images throughout the range.

    Here's the link Rooz gave me to help me choose lenses.

    My alternative was to buy a 24-70 F/2.8 and a Tokina wide angle so this was a much cheaper route for me and gives great IQ (at least to my poorly trained eyes) but stays slow.

    Thanks for all that DPR - I will keep a look out for your posts with that lens - I have also downloaded some photos from another test site.
    I have plenty of time to decide - it's that or the Macro lens first, and I have a 17 - 70 at the moment but I am doing some re-structure thinking with my kit just now.

    Point Nepean and the entrance to Port Phillip Bay.
    This is a former Military base and the building was a barracks building.

    I previously posted in the Nikon POTD thread where it was correctly pointed out I've overdone the sky. Learning experience.
    a bit overdone BUT STUNNING BEAUTIFULL!!!

    Castlewood Canyon

    On a cold, overcast, and windy winter day I stopped at Castlewood Canyon, which runs under Hwy 83 a few miles south of Franktown, Colorado.
    Here is an image from that visit and no I did not lose any fingers or toes to frostbite but it was not the most pleasant outing.
    Enjoy from the warmth of your home or office.
    Happy Holidays to All!
