just a quick one at the moment i have a nikon d3000 with a 18 - 55 Nikon lens,that's the one that came with the camera,but i am thinking of upgrade it to a 16-85mm Nikon lens
Is any one using this lens,could you give me some pro's and con's
Thanks in advance,Ian

As a second lens you have a massive overlap with your existing lens - what are you trying to photography that you think will be better with an extra 2mm at the wide end and 30mm at the long end?
Thanks for the reply to be honest i want to use it as a portrait lens so i would not be using the wide end much if at all,was thinking about a prime lens 85mm f/1.4G,but that is a FX lens and also it sells for around £1200 and i want to use the lens on a D3000 so i looked at the 16- 85 DX lens
Once again thanks for the reply,Ian
Why not look at the Nikon AF-S 50mm f1.8 with the crop factor it is fairly close to the 85mm on a full frame.
Personally on a Nikon D5000 I went to a Nikon 50mm f1.4 and now would choose that over the kit lens unless I need something wider but that was before the 1.8 came out so probably I would consider that now.
or the nikon af-s 60mm micro lens and it has vr built in and can obviously be used for macro aswell should you want?
That's a good point darranl,i have a think about that
