A compact all-in-one lens that's ready for anything.

If you're looking for an outstanding grab-and-go lens—the kind you'll keep on your camera for nearly every situation—check out the new AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR. Optimized to draw full potential from Nikon’s high-resolution DX-format image sensors, it delivers beautiful ultra-sharp photos and videos with softly blurred backgrounds. Its versatile 7.8x zoom range (18mm to 140mm) lets you shoot everything from wide-angle family portraits to telephoto close-ups on the sports field. 4 stops of VR image stabliization means sharper handheld photos and video, especially when shooting in low light or at maximum focal length. You can even get as close as 1.48-feet from your subject for macro-style close-ups!

Clarity within reach

7.8x wide-angle to telephoto zoom

Developed with high pixel count D-SLRs in mind, the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR delivers vibrant, detail-rich photos and videos across its entire zoom range. Zoom out for an 18mm wide-angle view that’s great for group shots, landscapes or any time you need to fit more into the frame. Zoom in for 140mm of telephoto reach—enough zoom to capture close-ups of your favorite player from the sidelines. In between, you have standard views similar to what you see with your eyes and medium telephoto views ideal for portraits. Whatever shot comes your way, you’ll be ready to catch it.

Sharper handheld shooting

The VR image stabilization advantage

The AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR versatility is strengthened by 4 stops of VR image stabilization. Capture sharp, shake-free handheld photos and videos in low-light situations, when you want to use slower shutter speeds, and at telephoto distances, when even the smallest amount of camera shake can ruin a shot.

Exquisite performance

Advanced Nikon technology and superb NIKKOR optics

AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR is an advanced lens designed to get the most from high-resolution Nikon D-SLRs. In addition to VR image stabilization, it uses ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass, which virtually eliminates reflections and lens flare for better contrast and Aspherical (AS) lens elements for minimizing aberration and improving image integrity and color. Nikon’s remarkable Silent Wave Motor (SWM) provides ultra-fast, ultra-quiet autofocusing, a major advantage when recording video. And, of course, the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR has NIKKOR’s renowned quality of construction and outstanding optics.
*Based on CIPA Standard. This value is achieved when DX-format compatible lenses are attached to a DX-format digital SLR camera and zoom lenses are set at the maximum telephoto position.
ED (Extra low Dispersion) and Super ED Glass
ED (Extra low Dispersion) and Super ED Glass
ED Glass is an optical glass developed by Nikon that is used with normal optical glass in telephoto lenses to obtain optimum correction of chromatic aberrations. Super ED glass exhibits an even lower refractive index and lower light dispersion than ED glass, while excelling at eliminating secondary spectrum and correcting chromatic aberration.
Vibration Reduction
Vibration Reduction
A Nikon in-lens technology that improves image stability by automatically compensating for camera shake. Lenses that offer VR will feature the abbreviation VR on the lens barrel.
Silent Wave Motor
Silent Wave Motor
AF-S NIKKOR lenses feature Nikon’s Silent Wave Motor (SWM), which represents a significant advance in AF lens technology. SWM uses ultrasonic vibrations—rather than a gear system—to focus the lens, providing incredibly smooth, silent and precise autofocus operation.
IF Lens
IF Lens
A NIKKOR lens in which only the internal lens group shifts during focusing. Thus, IF NIKKORS do not change in size during AF operation, allowing for compact, lightweight lenses capable of closer focusing distances. These lenses will be designated with the abbreviation IF on the lens barrel.
A-M
A-M
A-M stands for Auto-Manual Mode. Thanks to a mechanism incorporated in the lens barrel, smooth focusing operation in Manual focus mode is realized in the same way as users have become accustomed to with conventional manual-focus lenses by adding an appropriate torque to the focus ring.
Super Integrated Coating
Super Integrated Coating
Nikon Super Integrated Coating is Nikon's term for its multilayer coating of the optical elements in NIKKOR lenses.
AS
AS
AS stands for Aspherical lens elements. This type of lens utilizes non-spherical surfaces on either one or both sides of the glass in order to eliminate certain types of lens aberration.

Excellent upgrade from kit lenses I shoot mostly with fixed focal lengths, but wanted a zoom for those times when I needed the versatility. I chose this lens to go with my D7100 and have found it exceeds all of my expectations. The image quality is very good for a zoom with this much range. In fact, it's good for any zoom lens that costs less than $1000. The only problem I've encountered has been some distortion, but that's easily fixed in post-processing. I highly recommend this lens for it's quality and value. April 5, 2015
Wonderful Lens I got this lens with my D5300 camera. 40+ years ago I was into 35mm photography, but I reverted to point-and-shoot cameras over the years. Now that I am retired, I wanted to get back to good photography. This camera and this lens particularly, are marvelous. My initial photos immediately looked professional and I credit this lens. I did have to buy the hood separately which was an annoyance. I also spent a good amount of $ to buy a B&W XS-PRO NANO Clear filter to protect the lens with zero distortion, but that is a good investment in my opinion. Overall, I couldn't be happier with the lens. December 30, 2014
What a great all in one lense This is a fabulous lens for every day shooting! I would recommend it to anyone who needs a great all purpose lens for both close and far pictures! August 3, 2014
Great travel lens I love this lens for traveling. It has a wide angle as well as a zoom feature. I have been happy with the results June 4, 2014
Nikon 18-140 is a great lens!! Really like the focal length so far it lives up to the hype. May 11, 2014

This is a general question.

What is the best way to clean the outwards facing lens element of any Nikkor lens? this is for routing cleaning of dust, fingerprints and water droplets.

I do understand that adding a filter will keep it clean, and we will have to just clean the filter. But I want to clean the lens before adding a filter.

I've been reading on lens fungus here lately. I currently live in MD where temp and humidity tend to fluctuate regularly. Has anyone on the forum had any issues before with fungus on the lens? Was it inside the lens or on the outside of the lens? What do you do now to protect your lenses from fungus? I just got my camera and want to know what the standard protocol is for preventing damage like this to my lens. Currently, I don't use it every day and it mostly sits on top of my cabinet with the lens cap on.

Answer: 
Fungus is caused by dust and moisture inside the lens. The dust is almost impossible to control but without moisture it will not turn to fungus. Store the camera in a camera bag or a box with some silica gel packets. Always dry off a damp camera and try to avoid extreme sudden temperature changes.

The AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR delivers vibrant, detail-rich photos and videos across its entire zoom range. Zoom out for an 18mm wide-angle view that’s great for group shots, landscapes or any time you need to fit more into the frame. Zoom in for 140mm of telephoto reach—enough zoom to capture close-ups of your favorite player from the sidelines.

Capture sharp, shake-free handheld photos and videos in low-light situations, when you want to use slower shutter speeds, and at telephoto distances, when even the smallest amount of camera shake can ruin a shot.

The powerful AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR zoom lens lets DX-format D-SLR users reach 300mm super-telephoto with clarity and sharpness, thanks to built-in VR II (Vibration Reduction) image stabilization. In addition, the new High Refractive Index (HRI) lens—a first for the NIKKOR lineup—achieves clear, high-contrast images at every aperture and focal length yet contributes to making the lens body slim and compact. A practical, versatile lens, the AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR is ideal for those who want a single lens that can handle just about any shooting opportunitiy. The compact AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR, with its High Refractive Index (HRI) lens element and 2 Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass elements, lets you easily capture far off images, bringing all the action up close. Nikon VR (Vibration Reduction) image stabilization provides 3.0 stops of blur free handheld shooting, assuring dramatically sharper still images and HD video capture.
