    18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR Pour la photographie de tous les jours

    Posted by Winny on February 11, 2018

    Très satisfait de cet objectif, très utile pour la photographie de voyage et de tous les jours. J´ai fait des photos de chiens en pleine action et très satisfait des résultats obtenus. Bien sur il y a de la distorsion à 18mm, mais cet objectif vous donnera une excellente qualité d´image à toutes les focales. Je l´ai acheté usagé dans un magasin de photographie et pour le prix c´est un produit gagnant.

    Great Lens

    Posted by WETSU76 on February 2, 2018

    When I upgraded to my D7200 I got the 18-140mm lens and I believe I keep this lens on 70% of the time; the other 30% I only change the lens if the situation calls for one of my prime lens or I need some major telephoto reach for birds and wildlife.
    The Bokeh/ DOF on this 18-140 is pretty decent, specially when you´re zoomed in all the way to 140mm...I´ve manage to get some great shots of my wife and daughter on casual walks, some awesome landscape/ cityscape and close-ups of flowers. Autofocus, sharpness, exposure and color clarity are all top notch.

    *I´ve tried to upload pictures twice for this review and the upload keeps failing....I could post links to some my picture on Instagram, but adding a URL on here is against the review guidlines.

    Great general purpose lens

    Posted by F2FTn on December 14, 2017

    This is a GREAT general purpose lens. One lens that can do 80-90% of what you want it to do.
    With its coverage range, you don´t have to change lenses, like you would with an 18-55 55-200 kit.

    There are a couple short comings:
    - The lens is borderline big/heavy for a standard lens that is always on the camera. Maybe OK for a college age person, but as you get older, the weight becomes more of an issue. A VR version of the 18-70 pushed out slightly to 18-80 would be ideal, to help reduce the carry weight.

    - The lens is SLOW. It drops down to f/4.5 at 40mm and f/5.6 at 100mm. Going down to f/5.6 at 100mm hurts. As an outdoor daytime lens, it is great. But, if you shoot sports at night or indoor without a flash, you will need to crank up the ISO level, and put up with the reduced image quality at the high ISO level.

    Great images but questionable build?

    Posted by Sampy on August 13, 2017

    I have been using this particular lens for the past two and a half years. The lens was part of the kit which included the D7000 body.

    Through the years, i have been quite satisfied with the lens in terms of image quality, ease of handling, autofocus speed etc.

    However, the plastic ring attached to the barrel, just in front of the zoom ring came detached in the first month of gentle use (no exposure to harsh outdoor elements or physical abuse). Initially, i thought that the detached ring would merely be a cosmetic defect and not affect functionality.

    However, i soon found out that the detached ring would extend into the distended main barrel when zoomed and hinder the full extension of the barrel - the ring effectively blocked smooth zooming

    A simple fix would have been to glue the plastic ring back in place. However, it is disappointing to see such poor manufacturing/quality control on a lens by a manufacturer priding itself on making top notch lenses.

    I am not sure if i would turn to Nikon lenses in the future.

    Great lens!

    Posted by PhotoDrummer on October 2, 2016

    I purchased this lens in March 2016. We had a vacation coming up and I didn´t want to have to keep swapping between a 18-55 mm and a 55-200mm lens. I chose it over Nikon´s 18-200 mm lens, mostly because of the weight difference between the two.

    I chose wisely. This lens delivers. I read some reviews before buying that when zoomed all the way in sometimes distortions are present. I have yet to see this happen. I´m currently using a Nikon D5100. Since I´ve purchaed it I´ve only had to change between the 18-140 and the 55-200 once.

    A Great Lens Even for Flower Photography

    Posted by Anonymous on September 26, 2016

    This is the kit lens that came with my D5500. When my wife decided to buy another lens for her D3300 (to use instead of her 55-200mm zoom I suggested she get one of these. It is capable of sharp images and beautiful color gradation. It is more than fast enough outdoors so handheld shots are easy to accomplish. You may just want to try one of these lenses for your own photography if you need something that is a one-size-fits-all candidate.

    Great general purpose lens, good to get started with

    Posted by Stothek Monster on June 12, 2016

    It´s 18-140 mm range makes it convenient for many situations. It´s a good build quality and makes good quality sharp images. I like having vibration reduction and also auto/manual focus which makes it a good lens to get started with.
