Crystal Clear Imagery
Nikon’s exclusive Vibration Reduction system enables steady hand-held shooting at all focal lengths. Delivering sharp photos and video, VR allows you to use shutter speeds that are up to 4 stops slower than would otherwise be possible. Also, being an optical system means that the viewfinder image is also stabilised, enabling more accurate autofocus acquisition and framing. Leave your tripod at home and shoot with confidence, safe in the knowledge that the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR will produce photos of outstanding sharpness and colour even in low light.
Providing outstanding optical performance, the lens comprises 17 elements in 12 groups, in a design with both an ED and an aspherical lens element. The iris diaphragm has seven rounded blades which make out-of-focus elements blend together smoothly. Featuring a newly designed optical system, the ED element works together with the aspherical element to eliminate problems of coma and chromatic aberration and ensure high-resolution and superior contrast.
Combining ease-of-use and maximum precision, the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR lens has two focus modes. In addition to Manual focus, Manual-priority autofocus (M/A) allows you to switch from autofocus to manual operation with virtually no time lag, even during AF servo operation and regardless of the AF mode in use. This gives all the benefits of fast, automatic focusing while still retaining the ability to make fine focus adjustments before taking the shot.
VR allows shutter speeds up to 4-times slower enabling greater creative control in low-light situations.
Nikon's AF-S technology is yet another reason why professional photographers like NIKKOR lenses. Nikon’s exclusive Silent Wave Motor (SWM) converts travelling waves into rotational energy to focus the optics. This enables high-speed autofocusing that’s extremely accurate and super quiet. So for discrete shooting you can set up the shot in an instant and camera focusing won’t disturb sensitive subjects like wildlife.
The AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR lens was built with long-lasting durability and portability in mind. Weighing in at an economical 490g, the handling is exceptional and perfect for photographers on the move. Allowing for a more compact design, Nikon's Internal focus (IF) technology limits all the optical movement to the interior of the non-extending lens barrel enabling a closer focusing distance. With a weather-sealed mount protecting both the lens and camera from dust and water you can shoot with complete confidence.
Ready to catch any shot that comes your way, the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR lens from Nikon is a great all-rounder, providing the perfect combination of image quality, size, weight and price.
 The actual focal length of 18-140mm has an angle of view equivalent to that of a 27-210mm lens in 35mm  format.
