Our Take on Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-140mm lens:
The Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-140mm VR lens covers a 27-210 mm equivalent focus distance when paired with a DX Nikon camera. It can be used in combination with camera models such as Nikon D5300 and D7100. It is front heavy when coupled with the D5300, yet it balances well with the larger D7100 camera body. You’ll find the lens mostly covered by the zoom ring. The focus ring is about 12mm from the trailing end of the zoom ring. The user can switch between the manual and automatic focusing modes using a toggle switch. It is a G-type lens and lacks an aperture ring; however, you can manually change the aperture setting from the camera body.
The VR stabilization of the Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-140mm lens that reduces shake effects up to four stops offers precise and distortion-free handheld videos and images, especially when shooting in low light and maximum focal length. There is a switch to disable or enable the Vibration Reduction system. You will find the stabilization sliders and focusing mode on the left side of the barrel. Nikon’s proprietary Silent Wave Motor provides rapid and ultra-quiet autofocusing. This feature proves to be beneficial when it comes to video shooting.
Apart from the VR image stabilization, the Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-140mm VR lens uses an ED lens for minimum chromatic aberrations, offering better sharpness and improving integrity. Furthermore, there is a Super Integrated Coating that can bring down glare and ghosting effects to a minimum in harsh lighting environments, thus improving contrast and enhancing sharpness. As mentioned above, the Nikkor lens includes a zoom ring roughly 50mm wide. It has a 36mm wide rubber grip band. The trailing edge of the zoom ring bears markings at 140mm, 70mm, 50mm, 35mm, 24mm, and 18mm. The lens barrel includes a fixed section 17mm wide (approx).
