Its to replace my 18-55 lens as a general walkabout lens. I also have a 35mm 1.8 for low light stuff. I like the slightly wider and longer focal length of the 16-85. Posted 3 months ago mikey74Member Bump for the evening crowd. Posted 3 months ago BikePawlMember I’ve had this lens for a couple of years, and have been impressed with it. It’s a lot heavier then the 18-55 and doesn’t focus as close, but we’re only talking a few cm. also it’s not that much wider. Posted 3 months ago mikey74Member Thanks. Weight doesn’t bother me so much. Do you consider it a worthy upgrade to the 18-55? Posted 3 months ago BikePawlMember Yes I do, but if I was buying now I’d probably go for the 16-80 f2.8-4 Posted 3 months ago ampthillSubscriber The older 16-85 is very popular and well regarded. Cheap as chips used The faster newer one seems less sharp in reviews Posted 3 months ago mikey74Member And a hell of a lot more expensive Posted 3 months ago DrJMember I’ll tell you what is a cracking good lens for the money – the 18-70. Not the fastest, but quite sharp for a kit-level lens. Posted 3 months ago bigyinnMember Not really much of an upgrade over the 18-55 in terms of focal length though. How much better is it than the current 18-55? Posted 3 months ago mikey74Member The 16-85 replaced the 18-70, didn’t it? Posted 3 months ago ampthillSubscriber I’m a big fan the of the 18-70 The F4.5 at 70mm gives alot more background blur than 55mm f5.6 Posted 3 months ago Viewing 11 posts - 1 through 11 (of 11 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
