Hello everyone, i'm upgrading my kit lens 18-55mm vr to the 16-85mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR. Are there any problems or things to take note before i go ahead with the purchase? I'm using a d5000 body. thanks in advance!:)

I would recommend 3rd party alternatives but since you seem to have set your mind, I would say just buy it. Just make sure u do some "marketing" before buying.

Lots of good reviews and slightly more versatile than kit lens.

Im also using D5K and was looking at this AFS 16-85 F3.5-5.6 but i ended up with a 17-70 F2.8-4.

it works well with d5000. there's nth else to take note of except the usual checks before purchasing it.

Test it on the spot.
I didn't have problems when I received the first copy at the shop.
No focusing issues or whatever. :)

Fantastic lens. I once had both 16-85VR and 17-55f2.8. I sold my 17-55f2.8, as I am pretty satisfied with my 16-85VR.

I'm kind of surprised you choose the 16-85mm over the 17-55mm. Considering the 17-55mm has wider aperture and better IQ, what makes you change your mind?

I did not personally own this lens but from viewing those taken from friends, bokeh-wise it does not seem so good
