Nikon VR image stabilization provides 2.5 stops of blur free handheld shooting. You can leave the tripod at home and create with spontaneity and confidence, even when lighting is less than ideal.

Exceptional versatility

Superior stills and HD video in any setting

AF-S NIKKOR 16–35mm f/4G ED VR includes some of Nikon’s most advanced lens technologies for exceptional performance in a broad range of shooting situations. From its flare and ghosting reducing Nano Crystal Coat (N) to its ultra-fast, ultra-quiet Silent Wave Motor (SWM) internal focusing motor, the AF-S NIKKOR 16–35mm f/4G ED VR is an advanced lens for today’s advanced D-SLR cameras.

Nikon Vibration Reduction

Learn more about Nikon’s in-lens VR image stabilization which assures dramatically sharper still images and video capture when shooting handheld.
*Based on CIPA Standard. This value is achieved when: FX-format compatible lenses are attached to an FX-format digital SLR camera and zoom lenses are set at the maximum telephoto position.
Vibration Reduction
Vibration Reduction
A Nikon in-lens technology that improves image stability by automatically compensating for camera shake. Lenses that offer VR will feature the abbreviation VR on the lens barrel.
Silent Wave Motor
Silent Wave Motor
AF-S NIKKOR lenses feature Nikon’s Silent Wave Motor (SWM), which represents a significant advance in AF lens technology. SWM uses ultrasonic vibrations—rather than a gear system—to focus the lens, providing incredibly smooth, silent and precise autofocus operation.
Nano Crystal Coat
Nano Crystal Coat
An anti-reflective coating developed by Nikon that virtually eliminates internal lens element reflections across a wide range of wavelengths. Nano Crystal Coat solves ghost effects caused by red light and effectively reduces ghost and flare caused by light entering the lens diagonally.
ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) Glass
ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) Glass
An optical glass developed by Nikon that is used with normal optical glass in telephoto lenses to obtain optimum correction of chromatic aberrations.

Select NIKKOR lenses have a focusing mode which allows switching from automatic to manual focusing with virtually no lag time by simply turning the focusing ring on the lens. This makes it possible to seamlessly switch to fine manual focusing while looking through the viewfinder.

I'm Impressed! I had some reservations about putting out the $$$ for a wide angle lens in this price range. WOW! What a job this lens does. Now I regret waiting so long to buy it. Crisp, clean, and clear photos with no visible distortion. March 25, 2015
Extremely Sharp Ultra Wide Angle Zoom Lens This Nikon ultra wide angle zoom lens has exceptional resolution and an excellent focal length range. Its wide breath of focal length is well suited for landscape images without having to change lenses. Attached is a photo of the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, taken at a shutter speed of 1/250, an aperture of f/4.5, an ISO of 100, and a focal length of 16mm, taken with a Nikon D800 camera body. October 7, 2014
This is the Wide Angle Lens You Need I would not hesitate to recommend this lens. If you have money to burn, buy the 14-24mm; but if you buy the 16-35mm you won't be sorry and you'll save money. I use this lens with a Nikon D800E mainly for scenes in the FX mode. The filter thread on the lens is 77mm, which is the same thread used on many of the best Nikon lenses. You can buy one set of quality filters and use the filters on multiple lenses. This lens is awesome in every aspect. It's only competition is the 14-24 2.8 which only goes 2mm wider and is about $750 more than the 16-35. Plus 16-35 has a lot more useful focal range. Built solid, ZERO slop in the focus ring. Highly recommended if you're looking for a pro wide lens. April 4, 2014
sharp,sharp,sharp I really like this lens. I have had it for a couple of months by now, and I am still amazed by how sharp it is. Highly recommend it! Note to Nikon: I really miss the f-stop ring March 24, 2014
best of class I read all the reviews and commentaries and took the plunge. I was using the D90 with 10-24 Nikkor and decided it was more important to have UWA in that range with my FX D600. The 10-24 is an amazing lens, but so far the 16-35 seems even better. VR actually is very useful (I often need to take advantage of mega depth-of-field) and stopping down to f11ish I can hand-hold at crazy-slow shutter speeds, this is particularly useful when I am shooting at an angle that is not conducive to tripod use. As noted, it is a big lens, but if you want all the bells and whistles of today's cutting-edge optical tech best start doing some bench presses, ha ha. March 5, 2014

Answer: 
For good night club shots, you will want a large aperture to let in as much light as possible. From daylight to low light, inside or out, near or far, your creative bases are covered with the astonishing versatility of the AF-S NIKKOR 16–35mm f/4G ED VR. Nikon VR image stabilization provides 2.5 stops of blur free handheld shooting. You want large apertures to let in as much light as possible.
