/ Best lens for climbing photos?
I have a nikon D5100 and im looking for a good qulity wide angle zoom that i can take whilst climbing.
Has anyone any opinions on the nikon 16-85mm lens?
That said, it's a normal zoom, not a wide-angle... it's a good upgrade to your existing normal zoom, assuming that's one of the 18-xx lenses, but if you really want wide-angle you might find yourself wanting a dedicated UWA lens, such as the 10-24 - but then you need a normal and/or tele lens as well.
I too am a huge fan of the Nikon 16-85 mm lens. I have used it on mountaineering trips like Denali, Everest, Mt Cook etc.
Kit lenses from Nikon are surprisingly good when stopped down a few notches so the 18-xx might be a cheaper option.
A cheaper but excellent option would be the Nikon 18-70 used. Cheap as chips and mine has been in every way brilliant
