A Single Lens with Unlimited Potential
The AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR is a truly versatile performer. With its wide 7.8x zoom range, this lens gives you the freedom to shoot landscapes, portraits, telephoto close-ups and more. Its 45cm minimum focus range even allows you to capture richly detailed macros from up close.
Impeccable Images from Edge to Edge
The lens’ state-of-the-art optics ensure breathtaking image quality across the entire 7.8x zoom range. Extra-low Dispersion glass eliminates reflections and flares to enhance contrast, while Aspherical lens elements minimise chromatic aberrations for exceptional image reproduction and sharpness right to the edge of frame. Complementing the optics is our Silent Wave Motor (SWM), which delivers ultra-quiet autofocusing with incredible speed and precision.
Excellent Handheld and Low-Light Performance
Adding to the versatility of its zoom range, this lens offers effortless performance when shooting without a tripod or when the light is less than ideal. Our Vibration Reduction system greatly reduces camera shake when shooting handheld, providing an effect equal to 4.0 stops*. This not only eliminates blur, but it also allows slower shutter speeds for improved definition in low-light situations.
*Based on CIPA Standard. The value is achieved when: DX-format lenses are attached to a DX-format digital SLR camera, FX-format compatible lenses are attached to an FX-format digital SLR camera, and zoom lenses are set at the maximum telephoto position.
