Once again Nikon has gone the extra mile to deliver an outstanding all-round zoom lens to suit photographers at every level. The AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR is a highly versatile lens that captures ultra-sharp photos and video, thanks to the combination of amazing NIKKOR optics and advanced lens technologies. With a broad reach from wide-angle up to telephoto, this compact DX-format lens is practical and portable, making it a highly convenient option for anyone wanting to travel light.
If you’re looking for an all-in-one solution this 7.8x zoom lens will give you the freedom to shoot most scenes without needing to change lenses. Boasting a focal length range of 18-140mm and optimised to draw full potential from Nikon’s high-resolution DX-format image sensors, you can capture high-quality shots of sweeping landscapes, and detailed shots of distant subjects, or shoot close up, to as near as 45cm from the subject.
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.
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.

I was originally planning to buy the Nikon 18-200, but that has been criticised for being "soft", especially beyond 140mm. This covers the useful range of the 18-200 but is cheaper and lighter. The Amazon price is still very high, though. I paid pounds 240 for mine, and took a risk because of the price difference.
I use mine on a D7000 (which I love!), but it also works well on my wife's D40 and would be good on a D5100/D52000/D3100/D3200 etc. I also have several other lenses, but I expect this to be my main lens if I'm not sure what my subjects will be, or I want to take only one lens on a trip.
If you have the money, this plus the Nikon 10-24 is an excellent combination (and then add something for the long range if you want). It's a big improvement over a kit lens like the 18-55.
I also owned the "super kit" 18-105mm Nikkor which was quite good (my copy anyway) but struggled a bit with newer high resolution sensors.
Overall the lens is better than I expected, but has a few compromises as all "bigger zoom" lenses tend to. But importantly I feel these don't detract from a very decent offering from Nikon here (and the price is much more sensible right now)
Summary of good and bad
+ Very useful 27- 210mm equivalent (7.8x zoom) very handy for a general purpose lens
+ Price is much more appealing over initial release (it's pretty fair for what you get)
+ Lens sharpness is good esp central region across the focal range even at 140mm f5.6 (it's surprisingly sharp here)
+ Build is fine for a lens in this price range, plastics are of reasonable quality and about what I expect.
+ Has a metal mount
+ Front element does not rotate during focus or zoom
+ AF is fast and quiet, it's a good bit speedier than the older 18-105mm I had (which was about average)
+ Fairly decent close focus ability at 1:4.2 magnification (140mm end) 0.23x or (0.45m) which isn't bad at all. It's not a genuine macro by any means but good enough for closer focus work
+ CA isn't a serious issue mostly well controlled
+ VR performance is strong as expeced around 3.5 - 4 stops
+ Full time manual focus with Nikon's AF-S AF motor
- Fairly hefty distortion at the 18mm mark (not unexpected for a lens like this)
- Pincushion is notable moving up the zoom range from about 40mm and is still fairly visible at the 140mm mark. I do feel it's not as strong as the 18-105mm was at the tele end though.Read more ›
This lens very versatile, the 18-140 range covers virtually everything I need, so this is usually the lens on my camera. And why not, it is very sharp across the frame and at all focal lengths. Remember this is a kit lens and is really not an expensive option when you look at the technology. 18mm is fine for wide angle. I have a 10-24 as well, but more and more I am finding that 18mm is more appropriate than the distorted reality of 10mm.
There is a little vignetting (darker in the corners than the frame centre) but it is not that bad and easy to fix if you want to. Chromatic aberration and colour fringing is not a real problem with this lens. I have had it with my wide angle, but this lens is remarkably tamed for image quality.
At 140mm, this lens is still very sharp and great for garden birds etc. Combine this range with the sharpness and the ability to crop a little with the D7100 and you can see why I rarely carry my 70-300mm lens, I usually just don't need it. For a bit of hill walking this is idea. I know I have the most versatile lens that gives me great results.
The Vibration Reduction seems to work very well, I have used it in night markets and city streets with very good effect and I am happy with the sharpness of the results. I have come from in-body-stabilisation (Pentax) and I think the VR of this lens is better than what I was used to (I did not think to do a scientific experiment when I had both cameras).Read more ›
