Great lens. I upgraded from the 18-105mm and the difference is noticable.

I have now had some additional experience with the 16-85mm and can again recommend it for shooting on a tripod. Here is another example:

However, as a walkaround lens I prefer the 18-200mm to avoid missing shots past 85mm. The 18-200mm can certainly be used on a tripod, but the DxO statistics and some other sources (not Ken Rockwell) suggest that the 16-85mm is an optically superior lens.

So far I've been very satisfied with this lens. Images taken with it are very sharp and contrasty, and the lens provides a 16mm wide end. Of course, you will need a second lens to go past 85mm and an ultra-wide angle for below 16mm. Because of the VR, the 16-85mm can be used as a walkaround lens. Here is a tripod shot with the lens:

I have one. It's compact, built very well. All the rings are nice and tight. I see no tendency for the zoom to creep. It handles well due to it's compact nature. I am have one issue with mine, and have yet to test it against another copy. Mine seems to focus short at 16mm. Short foreground is razor sharp, while objects go out of focus rather quickly within 15-20 feet. I try to shoot in the f/8 to f/16 range and expect deeper DOF from a lens like this. It may be a flawed copy. It may be operator error. It's not a consistent issue.

Well built, compact and great zoom range. Sharpest lense I own and fantastic VR performance with shots at S.S. 0.62 second.

I bought one. I'm working with and I like the 16mm. The colors and the precision of the images is fantastic. I will post pictures soon.
