Designed for our high-resolution image sensors, the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR is a versatile lens that opens up a wide range of photographic possibilities. It delivers superb image quality across the entire frame and from any distance. Its 7.8x zoom range offers the versatility to capture everything from breathtaking wide-angles and gorgeous portraits to highly detailed close-ups. Its Vibration Reduction effortlessly eliminates camera shake to provide sharp, in-focus photos and videos.
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.
