Our take on the Nikon AF-S DX 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR Lens

by Woody Sherman
Nikon

If you were given five minutes to pack for a trip that could lead, well, anywhere... this would be the compact lens you'd want for its grab-and-go utility. With a versatile zoom range of 18-140mm (27-210mm equivalent), it will gather both the sweep and scope of the countryside and cityscapes you encounter, while still giving you the telephoto power to capture sharp details, compelling candid moments and striking portraits.

Being a Nikkor lens, it features superb workmanship and finely crafted optical elements. VR stabilization gives you sharp, clear images even at low shutter speeds. And as it weighs barely over 1 pound, it's a perfect companion when your itinerary requires light packing.

Features

Overview: The Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR lens is a compact, all-in-one lens that is good for multiple shooting situations. You can shoot ultra-sharp photos and videos, from wide-angle family portraits to telephoto close-ups on the playing field. It is designed for use with Nikon DSLRs with DX-format image sensors. The lens features Vibration Reduction (VR) to reduce blur cause by camera shake, and a Focus Mode switch for switching to Auto Focus or Manual Focus.

Vibration Reduction (VR): The lens is equipped with Nikon's Vibration Reduction (VR) technology, which reduces blur caused by camera shake. When VR is enabled, the range of available shutter speeds is increased (including speeds up to 4.0 stops slower than those without VR), and permits hand-held, tripod-free photography in a wide range of situations. You can enable or disable Vibration Reduction by using the 2-way VR switch on the lens barrel.

Focus Mode Switch: The lens includes a 2-way Focus Mode switch on the barrel of the lens. In the A position, the camera will automatically focus the photo when the shutter release button is pressed halfway. You can also manually focus while in Auto Focus mode by turning the focus ring after auto focusing has taken place. When switched to the M position, you can focus manually by rotating the focus ring on the lens.

Nikon Super Integrated Coating (SIC): Nikon's Super Integrated Coating (SIC) offers superior color performance and substantially reduced ghosting and flare, by enhancing light transmission.

Silent Wave Motor (SWM): The exclusive Nikon Silent Wave Motor (SWM) enables fast, accurate, and quiet auto focus.

Internal Focus: Internal Focus (IF) provides fast and quiet autofocus without changing the length of the lens, retaining working distance throughout the focus range.

Lens Construction: The AF-S Nikkor 18-140mm lens has 17 elements in 12 groups, including 1 ED (Extra-low Dispersion glass) lens element for maximum sharpness and minimum chromatic aberrations, and 1 aspherical lens element.

Diaphragm: The lens is equipped a 7-blade, rounded diaphragm opening.

Nice walkaround lens

Written By James, DFW, TX on Friday, March 21, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Got this kit lens with my D7100. Very nice walk around lens for use outside in bright daylight. I got this lens primarily for my wife and I to shoot our kids playing outdoors. So far so good. Very decent bokeh with this lens too.
Pros:
Size, weight, value, nice range
Cons:
Low light photography

Nikon AF-S DX 18-140mm Lens

Written By AllenB, Boulder, Co. on Thursday, December 19, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This is definitely a "go to" lens, since it covers everything from wide angle to moderate telephoto. Most of the time it is the only lens I need to carry.
Pros:
Versatile, light weight, and high quality.
Cons:
Haven't found any, yet.

Will this lens auto focus with a Nikon D60 camera? [ Bud  Aug 12, 2014 ]
2 answers
  • Yes, the lens works on the D60! It does add far more weight than the 18-55 & 55-200 lens though. I've had the Nikon D60 for several years & recently bought the D7100 with the 55-300 & the 18-140 lens. Both beautiful, but heavy as I expected. The price you pay for excellent pictures. The D7100 also takes 6 frames per second vs. D60's 3.5 fps. And another great feature of camera (in case you're looking) is that you can convert picture to black & white while leaving the subject with color. [ Cindy   Aug 14, 2014 ]
