The Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR is a DX-format lens with a 7.8x zoom ratio and a 35mm equivalent focal range of 27-210mm. The optical formula comprises 17 elements in 12 groups, including 1 aspherical and 1 ED lens element. Weighing in at 490 grams, the AF-S DX Nikkor 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR lens features Nikon’s Vibration Reduction technology to combat blurring that may result from shaky hands, while a Silent Wave Motor ensures fast and quiet auto focus.
The 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.
Tipping the scales at 490 grams, the AF-S DX Nikkor 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR is not a particularly heavy lens, and it balances well on the larger DX bodies such as the Nikon D7100 pictured above. Build quality is very decent, with a metal bayonet mount, smooth focus and zoom rings, and very little wobble even when fully extended.
At the 18mm end of the zoom range, the angle of view is 76°, equivalent to that of a 27mm lens in a 35mm system. At the 140mm end, the angle of view narrows to 11°, which is the same as that of a 210mm lens on a 35mm full-frame camera. With the lens attached to a D7100, auto-focus is surprisingly fast. While not quite in the same league as the pro zooms (e.g. the AF-S 24-70mm f/2.8 or 70-200mm f/2.8), it's definitely capable of keeping quickly and erratically moving subjects in focus.
