I bought this lens to go with a D7500 body. The lens is very well built, focuses smoothly, and the pictures from a color and sharpness POV are excellent . This lens is very balanced with the D7500 body-
I hesitated to buy this lens because online reviews criticized it for various things. Well, now I wish I had bought it with the camera (a D7500) in the first place. Seriously, don´t let the internet nitpickers deter you. Though I already own other lenses including highly-recommended primes, I´m perfectly satisfied to leave this lens on the camera at all times unless I specifically need a very wide aperture. Sure, it may be a so-called convenience lens, but it´s one heck of a convenience. It´s a well-built lens with metal mount that balances well on the camera, and at the expense of some linear distortion you expect from a super zoom, it´s surprisingly sharp. You can´t really add sharpness, but you can certainly correct distortion on those photos where it matters, so in my opinion, it´s a good design philosophy on Nikon´s part. All things considered, this is an excellent walkaround lens that will get you the shots that present themselves, l highly recommend it.
I bought this lens as a kit lens with a D7500, and think it´s a great walking around lens. Yes, it´s bigger than the 18-55. When I shot the 18-55, I was always wishing it had a little more reach. The 18-140 focuses quickly and has pretty good reach. I´ve been happy with the images. Yes, it vignettes at the tele end when shot wide open. But what lens doesn´t? Purists would scoff, but I clean it up in Photoshop and don´t worry too much about it. It´s a great lens.
Cet objectif rencontre 90% de mes besoins. Qualité irréprochable. Parfait compagnon de voyage. Je suis un amateur de photographie depuis ma jeunesse et redécouvre ma passion avec cet objectif et mon d5600. Les deux font la paire!
When I want my dslr, but still want to travel light, I stick this lens on, and toss the camera in my backpack, and go. But that was mainly to minimize the carrying weight. It lets me go from wide landscapes to moderately close wildflower shots, which means it can cover a lot of what I want to shoot, when I´m hiking. But I really wasn´t sure if I liked this lens´ sharpness until a recent hike in Griffith Park. This shot was taken with the camera on an inexpensive travel tripod, 130mm, ISO 200, f/8, 2.5 seconds, on my D3400, auto white balance .jpeg. Of course, at the scale you see it in this review, you can´t really tell, but it is pleasantly sharp on my computer screen. You´ll have to take my word for it!
I usually don´t hike with a tripod unless I actually am intent on shooting nighttime skyscapes. That´s even though I know, cognitively, that it´ll always be sharper with a tripod than hand-held. I just prefer the speed and freedom of walking, and stopping to take shots on the fly. This was just a solid reminder that, if I *really* care about getting a shot, sometimes I actually do need to set down my backpack and compose my shot, properly.
I have to say, this lens far exceeded my expectations. This is a really versatile lens. It has performed well in all situations. As others have said, once you put it on, you may never take it off again. I have a 35mm f1.8 and a 70-300 VR that I may use ocassionly for specific reasons, but the 18-140mm will remain on my D5600 99% of the time.
I am a hobbyist that enjoys photographing family and friends (documentary/lifestyle), landscapes, and anything that catches my eye. This is my main ´walk-around´ lens when out hiking or walking with my family. It has just enough reach for far away subjects and wide enough to capture the whole scene. I recently used it at an airshow where it performed great!
I really like this lense for flexibility. I bought it to take to Italy so I would have a wider zoom range than the 18-55 but not and huge and heavy as my 55-300. Worked very well! I am a hobbyist and I take publicity shots on a volunteer basis for a dog rescue. This lense has helped me get good up close shots and to sneak up on a dog from further away. Also good with my kids.
At first, I thought the images were soft. But I just needed to become accustomed to the camera and the lens. I did an autofocus test with a tripod and a test pattern. I blurred the focus with the ring. Then, I pressed and released the shutter. I saw very good edge to edge sharpness at all focal lengths tested. I bought this lens as a kit with the D5500. What a pair. I like the fact that I holster this combo. It is always at the ready. It is like a small complete camera kit in a compact size. This pairing performs very well set to AUTO everything. Auto ISO makes this lens better than the native F/3.5-5.6G. This reliability gives you time to graduate to custom and manual settings.
