Compact and versatile DX-format zoom lens.
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.
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.
