Nikon 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6 overview

  • 1Description

Developed for Nikon's range of high-resolution DX-format cameras, the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR is a versatile 27-210mm-equivalent all-in-one zoom covering a wide-angle to mid-telephoto range. Helping to achieve impressive image quality, the optical design employs one aspherical element and one extra-low dispersion element, which both help to limit spherical and chromatic aberrations in order to realize great sharpness and color accuracy. Individual elements also feature a Super Integrated Coating, which cuts flare and ghosting to increase contrast when working in harsh lighting conditions. Benefitting handheld shooting, Vibration Reduction minimizes the appearance of camera shake by up to four stops in order to produce sharper imagery. Additionally, a Silent Wave Motor affords fast, near-silent autofocus performance and full-time manual focus override.

All-in-one zoom spans wide-angle to telephoto focal lengths and is designed for Nikon F-mount DX-format cameras, where it provides a 27-210mm equivalent range.
One aspherical element is used to reduce spherical aberrations and distortion in order to realize sharp imagery with accurate rendering.
One extra-low dispersion element greatly reduces color fringing and chromatic aberrations in order to produce greater clarity and color accuracy.
A Super Integrated Coating has been applied to individual elements to suppress internal reflections, flare, and ghosting for improved contrast and color accuracy when working in strong lighting conditions.
Silent Wave Motor affords quick, quiet, and precise autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus override. An internal focusing design is also used, where only the internal lens groups are moved during focusing, to maintain the overall length of the lens during use and to promote faster focusing speeds.
VR (Vibration Reduction) image stabilization helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake by 4 stops to benefit shooting handheld in difficult lighting conditions.
Rounded seven-blade diaphragm promotes a pleasing out of focus quality that benefits the use of shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques.

Nikon 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6 reviews

AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR Lens is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 99.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all-around lens I wanted a lens that I could keep on the camera most of the time. This one fits the bill. The 18-55 kit lens is sometimes too short. The 55-200 kit lens is sometimes too long. This lens spans almost the entire range, while still only about the size of the 55-200mm lens. A good length for portraits - wide enough for group shots, and long enough to get shots without getting in too close. I was thinking this would be the perfect kit lens, and I see that Nikon has started offering it as a primary option. I have 7 other lenses that work on my DX camera, but this is the one that will be mounted most of the time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Broad shooting coverage lens My first forey into digital cameras was a D80 package with two lenses: 18-55 and 55-200. Shooting nature mostly, wild animals and landscapes, I purchased a 70-300 and 10-24 lens to compliment my original setup. Unfortunately, I found myself having to carry all four lens to cover the shooting spectrum. I spent a lot of time changing lenses and exposing the camera internals to dust. The 18-140 covers ninety-five percent of my shooting needs and replaces two lenses with one. It works great and remains on the camera as my primary lens. It was worth the expense to supercede the original two lenses with my D80.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding New Lens I am not a professional photographer, just someone who loves taking pictures for my own enjoyment. I shoot a Nikon d7000 and had been using the excellent Nikkor 18-55 VR zoom for several years. But as I got more and more into photography I found that I needed a little more reach at the long end than the 18-55 provided. This lens meets my needs perfectly. It is not much heavier than the other lens, feels good in my hands, zooms effortlessly, focuses quickly, provides very sharp images, and renders colors beautifully. I now use it as my walking around lens and leave it on the camera just about all the time. This lens does everything well, and I recommend it strongly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great carry around lens I bought this lens to use it around for street photography, photojournalism and travel. Its not the fastest lens but its very sharp across most of the focal length. Here where I live (Puerto Rico) we have tropical weather and sunny days most of the time so light is not really an issue. I do recommend it to that student/semi-pro photographer to have it in your camera all the time. Construction is very solid typical of the Nikon brand. For me it actually balances the weight in my Nikon D7100, I'm 5'8 150pds and it feels great even after carrying it around in strikes and the such for several hours.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good All purpose lens I got this lens with my Nikon D7000. Initially, I hated this lens as I wasn't able to get proper pictures. But I much later found out it was the fault in my technique, specially that I was using the Auto mode. I am using this lens in all manual modes, now it gives much better quality. Someone mentioned it does not perform in low light, I have attached a picture taken in total dark with just a candlelight, at its low end of the maximum aperture which is f/5.6. It does a pretty good job of low light capture. The Autofocus is fast, no problems there. A versatile lens for everything.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than expected Nice image quality, not too bulky (for the very useful range). Sure, there are even longer ranges available, but then you really have to start thinking about how big a lens /camera combo you really want to be carrying around. Thought about the 18-105, but that really wasn't a noticeable weight or size savings over this lens. Only real downside is this is a plasticy lens- not the silky smooth zoom and focus of a classic Nikor. OTOH, if it gets damaged by moisture/dust in the field, it is less expensive than some rain jackets! Distortion is corrected with one click in Lightroom.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good enough to capture moments I've had this lens for almost a year and have used it in many different situations including beach sunsets, landscapes, city walking, and cars. I bought it used and for the price it has served its purpose well, to capture moments. BUT I would not recommend it for much else. It is very soft, especially when zoomed in. I have noticed on several occasions it completely missed the zoom, perhaps that is my fault but it just seems to happen to often. All in all it is a good lens, but I plan on upgrading to much better soon.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super Zoom all in 1 A decent lens that covers a lot of ground. I got this for travel and backpacking. PROS: good image quality across the zoom range, small, light, compact, no lens creep, metal mount, 5yr warranty, manual focus override, easy 1 finger focus, low CA, and good VR system. This lens works well for just about any situation and makes a great travel lens. Not superior in any aspect, but very good in all areas. CONS: Zoom ring is tight, perhaps to avoid lens creep. Not ideal for video, like all all-in-one lens' it has a lot of distortion on both ends. But it's easily corrected in camera and LR5. Harder to correct in video software. Also, no lens hood. Only regret is, I didn't get it as a kit with the D7100. Below is a panning shot using the VR at 70mm 1/20 sec, ISO 100, f/27. ND filter was used. Also, a Panorama of the Strip shot from the edge town about 15 mils away at 140mm, ISO 100, f/5.6, 1/2 sec on a tripod.
