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.

Customer Q&A

Q
Crutchfield asked: Why did you buy this?
A
I purchased from Crutchfield the Nikon D-7000 that came with the DX Nikkor 18-55 m m. with I still using it. However,one of your advisors recommend the 18-140 m m because is better lens then the 15-55 m m. [ RENE  Dec 01, 2017 ]

It goes with my camera [ RICKY  Oct 22, 2017 ]
A
I wanted a sturdy, sharp all-in-one zoom to mate with my Nikon D3300. This fills the bill. [ David  Aug 26, 2017 ]
A
A little expensive for a single lens in this line but I believe it will provide the flexibility of two lenses in one without having to carry or swap lenses routinely. Understand the zoom is not as powerful as the 55-300 but it is effectively around 220 (I think) so not too bad. And it will help keep the camera clean without the need to routinely swap lenses.

Seems like a good all lense [ David  Feb 27, 2016 ]

Q
Will this lens auto focus with a Nikon D60 camera?

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.
