Nikkor Z 18-140mm f/3.5-6.3 VR DX Lens Specifications

Thom's Commentary: While the 18mm “wide” end isn’t so wide (28mm equivalent), this superzoom covers a very large, useful range of focal lengths. It’s essentially like the old film/DSLR 28-210mm zooms, only far smaller, and frankly, better optically than almost all of those previous superzooms. As an always-on-camera, never-change-lenses choice, this lens is probably all you need. Moreover, even though it doesn’t collapse for travel, the lens is pretty small and light for what it does. While the close magnification is variable through the zoom range, you can get all the way to 1:3, which is near macro range. The one disadvantage of the lens is its slower apertures as you zoom in. Again, Nikon doesn’t supply a lens hood, and you really need one. Third party ones are far less expensive than Nikon’s. Recommended Read Thom's Full Review of the 18-140mm f/3.5-6.3 Lens
