The Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR Lens is a multi-purpose zoom lens capable of wide-angle and telephoto imaging—and everything in between. This all-in-one NIKKOR zoom lens is compatible with DX format cameras, and it features an extra-low dispersion (ED) glass element in addition to an aspherical element that help to improve edge sharpness and clarity while correcting chromatic and geometric distortions. Its combination of high-quality optics and a broad zoom range make the 18-140mm an ideal go-to lens for travel and other tasks that demand functionality without sacrificing portability.
Nikon's Silent Wave Motor (SWM) autofocus mechanism provides near-silent auto focusing that is both fast and accurate. Combined with Vibration Reduction (VR) image stabilization, the SWM AF system equips the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-140mm for handheld video recording as well as fast-action photography. Additionally, manual autofocus override allows instant switching to manual focus without taking your eye off the subject of interest. A 1.48 ft minimum focus distance and f/3.5 maximum aperture permit macro-style shooting that yields shallow depth of field with pleasant out-of-focus detail.
