  • Nikon 16-85mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX AF-S Nikkor

    10 out of 10 points and recommended
    high quality, sharp

    Great construction solid performer. Perfectly weighted on my D80. 16mm is great and definitely worth $ over 18mm lenses. I already have many shots saved by 16mm that my friend with an 18mm couldn't get. The 85mm end beats 55mm hands down, making this an ideal day-trip lens.

    Dxo has a new module for D80, anyone tried it on dxo 4.5? I can DL it but it won't load in the dxo 4.5
    It doesn't say v5 only on main page but

  • Nikon 105mm f/2.8G IF-ED AF-S VR Micro Nikkor

    IQ, IF, build

    This IF lens is great for macro shots w/o problems of blocking varying amt of light depending on focus. Plus you don't squish bugs when trying to focus on them! The only macro on the market with VR, and VR2 no less!

    dxo doesn't seem to have any macro lenses, is there a reason for this? Anyway, I put in their DxO Modules suggestion form so maybe they'll add it if more users vote for it.
