5.0 out of 5 stars Nice beginners telephoto lense, 18 Oct. 2013
By 
This review is from: Nikon AF-S DX 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR Lens (Electronics)
This is a nice lens and a definite step up from the 18 - 55mm kit lens, which this will more often than not be replacing as people expand their kit; not just in range but also in sharpness. It is also a good travel lens (not to heavy) if you don't want to spend the extra on the Nikkor 18 to 200mm. My only question is why at the time of typing this (18/10/13) are Amazon asking over £500 for it when it's available elsewhere online for under £220!! At Amazon's prices you might as well just by the 18 - 200mm which is similarly priced and a better quality lens with greater zoom. In short its a good lens, just don't buy it from here until they halve the price!

Perhaps Bryn would like to help us by letting us know where we can purchase this lens(not grey import) for under £220.00, and with a valid UK GUARANTEE.

I'd like to know too where you can get this for £220?

I've been reading the reviews with a new lens in mind, and the 18-200 is optically NOT a better quality lens, but of course, does have a greater zoom.

I tend to read the DXO Mark website for equipment reviews as it is possible to see how a (this) lens performs with a D 5100, 7000, 7100 etc, all in one place and so get a better idea of how good a lens really is. It's surprising how higher res cameras allow lenses to perform better too. When you read around the reviews in more depth, you'll see what I mean (on DXO Mark). The 18-200 vs the 18 - 140 loses on all the three camera bodies I was interested in - the D5200, D5300 and the D7100 - only by a small margin, but even so.
