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.

More details on the Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR
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.
