Nikon 16-35mm f/4 G ED VR Hands-on Review (Featuring Canon 16-35mm f2.8 L Mark II)


In the video, our presenter is given the task to review the latest and newest ultra wide angle zoom from Nikon – the 16-35mm f/4 ED VR(, and compare it to Canon’s flagship wide angle zoom – the 16-35mm f2.8 L Mark II(

Because we have destroyed too many products in our previous videos, the producer asked Kai to limit the budget to £30. Watch this video to find how well Kai did..

  1. I keep on clicking on these DigitalRev reviews and keep on getting astonished. Every new video sets the bar lower and lower, it's quite extra ordinary, if you ask me.

  2. A Chinese guy working in a factory in mainland China can get at lest $6000 a year, which is way more expensive than this lens. In HongKong China, the salary could be even higher. Just want you to know the fact that you intentionally ignored.

  3. Haha I miss the DRTV videos like this. Kai has a budget of sorts and goes and does crazy extravagant things and blows the money. Like in the 70-200mm video with the 2 models.

  4. If this is a lens review for a NIKON lens, why the hell would you compare it to the Canon? I'm not interested in the Canon lens. I came here as a NIKON user. I buy lenses for NIKON, not Canon! An equivalent Tamron/Sigma comparison…yes, maybe!..but I don't give a shit about Canon lenses. It's redundant.

  5. HI,
    Digital Rev,
    I am a huge fan of your reviews and videos. I have watched every single of of them (I think i did)
    I even buy everything after watching the video reviews by Kai .

    Now I am really looking forward to buy a Ultra Wide Angle Lens.
    Currently there is a new player in the market.

    tamron 15-30mm f2.8 

    Its been a while it came in the market, but surprisingly digitalrev has not reviewed it yet.
    Because I am in a dilemma, that whether I should buy this tamron or should I go for the Nikon 15-35mm f4. Because both of them belong to the same price range.

    I will be really thankful to digitalrev , if you guys review it as soon as possible.
    Because right now I am in California. and will be here for the next 30 days. 

    If I find your review helpful then I shall buy this lens for my landscape. before I go back to New Zealand.

    So Please Please Please review "tamron 15-30mm f2.8 " as soon as possible.

    Thank you.

  6. Initially i used to like but now it getting extremely boring….same kind of crappy talk and very little useful info. Just talked about vignetting which can easily be fixed in post processing. There so many things for a lens to be evaluated on. 

  7. 受不了,本来还很喜欢你的视频,但是你为什么老是喜欢讽刺中国呢?已经好几次了,上次视频打扮一个大陆人,然后这次又说一个中国人一年的工资才买得起。大哥,我只是喜欢看你的camera review,这和中国又什么关系的?对了我工资一年可以买20个这个镜头,但是听你说的好像我也很穷一样。我高中是新西兰的当地有名的私立,而且我除了懂英文以外还会德文,不算是没受过教育的人吧。sent from Bavaria.

  8. How bout focusing on the review instead of trying to act like jeremy clarkson every episode? Its so obvious you're trying to put a "top gear" spin on the review, it just looks awful

  9. this presentation for this lens should be named bug finding not presentation al pepple is doing is looking for flaws in the lens bending lines and al that ,uuuh there is noting in the nature that is 100% straight anyway  so who cears about stupid labtest
