I've searched around and read a few threads about this lens, but they're all from a few years ago. My question is if this lens is still worth getting or have there been newer ones either by Nikon or a third party? At the moment this lens is about £350 in the UK.
I have a 35mm 1.8, 50mm 1.8, and the 18-55mm that came with my D5000, but I wanted something wider and more versatile.
This leads me onto a second question, i was going to upgrade to D7000 until i saw the rumoured new one, so is it worth getting the 16-85 and leaving it there, or forget about that lens and wait for the D7000 refresh and get it with a kit lens?
Thanks in advance and sorry if I duplicated a thread, I genuinely searched but like i said most of the threads were pretty old regarding this lens.
