Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-140 f/3.5-5.6 G ED VR Lens
Compact and versatile DX-format zoom lens.
The AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-140 f/3.5-5.6 G ED VR is a zoom lens that combines portability and performance. Offering approximately 7.8x zoom, this DX-format lens is ideal as an everyday lens thanks to its Vibration Reduction and Silent Wave Motor features.
With a 7.8x zoom that’s well-suited to a wide variety of subjects and a build that is compact and lightweight, this lens makes a great all-rounder.
The Vibration Reduction system minimizes the effects of camera shake for blur-free images and helps to ensure a steady viewfinder image. Nikon’s Silent Wave Motor enables fast, quiet autofocus.
DX-format compatible, high-power approx. 7.8x normal zoom lens covering a focal-length range from 18 to 140 mm (angle of view is equivalent to that of a lens with a focal length of 27 to 210 mm in FX/35mm format)
High optical performance is realized with the employment of one ED glass element and one aspherical lens element
VR (Vibration Reduction) minimizes camera shake by offering a shutter speed equivalent to 4.0 stops* faster
* Based on CIPA Standard. This value is achieved when attached to a DX-format digital SLR camera, with zoom set at the maximum telephoto position.
Silent Wave Motor (SWM) is incorporated to ensure quiet AF operation
Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-140 f/3.5-5.6 G ED VR Lens
Versatile DX-format 7.8x zoom lens with 18–140mm focal range (35mm and Nikon FX-format equivalent: 27–210mm).
Wide to telephoto zoom range: An ideal ‘walkabout’ lens, perfect for capturing everything from sweeping landscapes to detailed shots of distant subjects.
High optical performance: One ED (extra-low dispersion) glass element and one aspherical lens element ensure high resolution and contrast while minimizing most forms of aberration and colour dispersion.
Vibration Reduction (VR) system: Minimizes the effects of camera shake and lets you shoot at shutter speeds that are up to four stops slower. VR operation is quiet, even when filming.
SWM (Silent Wave Motor) for fast, whisper-quiet autofocus.
Compact and lightweight build with weather-sealed mount.
Outstanding value for money.
AS - Aspherical lens elements
Nikon introduced the first photographic lens with aspherical lens elements in 1968. What sets them apart? Aspherical lenses virtually eliminate the problem of coma and other types of lens aberration — even when used at the widest aperture. They are particularly useful in correcting the distortion in wideangle lenses. In addition, use of aspherical lenses contributes to a lighter and smaller lens design.
Nikon employs three types of aspherical lens elements. Precision-ground aspherical lens elements are the finest expression of lens-crafting art, demanding extremely rigorous production standards. Hybrid lenses are made of a special plastic molded onto optical glass. Molded glass aspherical lenses are manufactured by molding a unique type of optical glass using a special metal die technique.
IF - Internal Focusing (IF)
Imagine being able to focus a lens without it changing in size. Nikon's IF technology enables just that. All internal optical movement is limited to the interior of the nonextending lens barrel. This allows for a more compact, lightweight construction as well as a closer focusing distance. In addition, a smaller and lighter focusing lens group is employed to ensure faster focusing. The IF system is featured in most NIKKOR telephoto and selected NIKKOR zoom lenses.
VR - Vibration Reduction (VR)
This innovative VR system minimizes image blur caused by camera shake, and offers the equivalent of shooting at a shutter speed three stops (eight times) faster.* It allows handheld shooting at dusk, at night, and even in poorly lit interiors. The lens’ VR system also detects automatically when the photographer pans — no special mode is required.

SWM - Silent Wave Motor
Nikon's AF-S technology is yet another reason professional photographers like NIKKOR telephoto lenses. AF-S NIKKOR lenses feature Nikon’s SWM which converts “traveling waves” into rotational energy to focus the optics. This enables high-speed autofocusing that’s extremely accurate and super quiet.
A/M - A/M mode (autofocus with manual override, AF priority mode)
An “autofocus-priority autofocus” mode that reduces the sensitivity of the manual override to prevent unexpected switching from auto to manual.
A-M - A-M switch
An element that locks the focus ring during autofocus while enabling behavior similar to a manual focus lens in manual focus mode with sufficient load when the focusing ring is rotated. The focus rings on the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55 mm f/3.5-5.6G VR, AF-S DX Zoom Nikkor ED 18-55 mm f/3.5-5.6G, and AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor ED 18-55 mm f/3.5-5.6GII rotate during autofocus.
RD - Rounded Diaphragm
Soft-focus shots of point light sources create regular polygonal shapes that reflect the shape of the opening created by the diaphragm blades. A rounded diaphragm uses blades designed to create a circular opening for a more beautiful soft-focus effect.
G - G-type NIKKOR
The G-type NIKKOR has no aperture ring; aperture should be selected from camera body.
