Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-140mm F/3.5-5.6G ED VR Review
The Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR is a DX-setup lens having a 7.8x zoom quotient and a 35mm corresponding focal distance of 27 to 210mm. The optical plan contains 17 components in 12 sets, counting 1 ED lens and 1 aspherical component. Weighing 490 grams, the AF-S DX Nikkor lens includes Nikon’s vibration reduction expertise to fight distortions that might arise from wobbly hands. At the same time, a quiet wave motor guarantees fast and silent auto focus.
At 490 grams, the Nikkor 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR isn’t a predominantly weighty lens and it balances perfectly on the bigger DX bodies like the Nikon D7100.
Ergonomics and Build
Similar to the D5300, the Nikkor 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR is completed in Nikon's workshop in Thailand. It boasts a metallic mounting plate though most of the tub is prepared from polycarbonate plastic. Weight and size wise, it’s a good match for the Nikon D5300.
Build quality is like Nikon's other customer lenses that are generally made with class in mind. There is a slender rubber seal around the lens stand to bar moisture and dust. Nevertheless, the lens isn’t weatherproof.
Internal focusing maintains the lens front in position, permitting angle-critical sieves to be utilized devoid of the need for re-tuning. Zooming from 18mm to 140mm point lengthens the two-phase inner tube by an overall of just more than 50 mm. The inner tube extends easily with no noticeable shaking.
With the lens connected to a Nikon D7100, auto-focus is amazingly fast. Although not fairly in the same level as the professional zooms, it is without doubt able to keep fast and unpredictably moving subjects focused.
Physical focusing is as well possible through the smooth but narrow focus band situated near the lens stand. For an auto focus lens, the focus band has a rather large amount of movement, which makes it uncomplicated to set focus accurately.
Distortion is a diverse issue. It is obvious at all focal distances, with actual evident tub distortion at 18mm that switches to minor pincushioning at about 24mm. The pincushion alteration becomes sturdier towards 70mm after that decreases at 140mm, though it stays quite noticeable.
This isn’t a macro lens. The highest reproduction quotient of the Nikkor 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR is about 1:4.4, which implies that you can load the frame with a focus that measures about 100 by 67mm. Acuity in the photo range is not astronomical however distortions are insignificant if taking pictures at the 140mm close.
Bokeh is a term utilized for the out-of-focus parts of a photo, and is regularly defined in qualitative words, for instance smooth /harsh/creamy etc. In the Nikkor 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR, Nikon implemented an iris diaphragm that has 7 blades that has led to a rather “tense” bokeh.
By design, the Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR is a suitability lens and, therefore, it will please anybody who wants an adept, general-use lens for daily use or for shooting top notch pictures.
