Our Take on the Nikon NIKKOR Z DX 18-140mm f/3.5-6.3 VR Lens:
The lens covers a 27-210 mm equivalent focus distance when paired with a DX Nikon camera, making it suitable for distant, fast-moving subjects and multiple distant photography applications. You’ll find the smooth click-less control ring extremely useful. You can customize the control ring and use it for controlling manual focus, aperture adjustments, and ISO or exposure compensation. With its capabilities, you can get close-up shots for as less as 7.9" and add macro-style details at a large 0.33x reproduction ratio. Therefore, the lens is perfect for tabletop shots most loved by food bloggers.
The VR stabilization of the lens reduces shake effects up to five stops and offers precise and distortion-free handheld videos and images, especially when shooting in low light or at the maximum focal length. Additionally, you can reduce shutter speed and shoot stills without any motion blurs. Further, its stepping motor provides rapid and ultra-quiet autofocusing. This feature proves to be beneficial when it comes to video shooting. On top of that, it is an IF NIKKOR lens that does not change in size during AF operation. Therefore, it is compact and lightweight thorughout the focus range.
The lens comes with an optical design including an optical glass that optimally corrects chromatic aberrations. Further, the aspherical lens with its curved surface reduces aberrations and enhances lens compactness. It also minimizes coma and other lens aberrations, even at the widest aperture. These elements prevent very common distortions of the wide-angle lenses, making the lens much better than its contemporaries. Further, it also acts as a weight management system as it reduces the need for spherical elements. Finally, the lens is dust and drip-resistant to prevent damage from inclement weather conditions.
