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.

including 1 ED (Extra-low Dispersion glass) lens element for maximum sharpness
and minimum chromatic aberrations, and 1 aspherical lens
