Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR


The Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR lens shows a lot of distortion, but Nikon cameras can correct that.

Sharp through most of range. 7.8x zoom range. Optically stabilized. Fairly compact.

Loads of distortion. Edge performance could be better. Hood not included.

The Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR increases the zoom range of its predecessor, but it sacrifices some sharpness at its maximum aperture and comes with a bit more distortion. The former can be alleviated by narrowing the aperture when...

Nikon Nikkor AF-S DX 18-140 mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR


The Nikon company is undoubtedly leading the way when it comes to general-purpose lenses designed for reflex cameras with APS-C/DX sensors. They have been launching devices with focal lengths starting from 18 mm and ending at several dozen or even...

useful focal range ; very good resolution in the frame centre ; slight longitudinal chromatic aberration ; well-corrected spherical aberration ; low astigmatism ; silent, accurate and fast autofocus ; excellent stabilization

significant lateral chromatic aberration at the longest focal length ; barrel distortion at wide angle and noticeable pincushion at the longer end of focal range ; lack of any accessories in the box

Problem whit my D7000


Before the firmware update on my camera (D7000) this lens worked perfectly, after that the lens began to fail causing not focus and slow to focus making a strange noise and movement. Can anyone help me solve this problem?

Great Lense


I am the picture of a real amateur photographer, but when I purchased my D7100 I wanted to be able to use my AF lenses I had purchased with my AF 8008 camera. I have 35-135mm that I had been using with the D7100 for a short time and I thought I was...

Great range, annoying issues


I purchased this lens by mail order based on specifications and Nikon reputation without trying it. I had hoped to replace my 18-55mm lens as an everyday walk around lens. In general it works very well but I have experienced two issues that always make...

Versatile Lens


This definitely has a wide range of focal distances to choose from, and more than plenty for what I need. If you're looking for a lens to have mounted most of the times for a wide-range of photographic opportunities, I recommend this; especially now...
