Take it anywhere
With its perfect balance of size, weight, and resolution—the NIKKOR Z DX 18-140mm f/3.5-6.3 VR is a superb do-everything lens. Go wide to capture the drama of streets, interiors, landscapes. Zoom in to the mid-telephoto range to frame characterful portraits, or go all the way to 140 mm for superb shots of distant landmarks.
Find new angles
The powerful 7.8x zoom lets you work with the moment—wherever you roam. Bring those ancient ruins closer when you can’t cross the river. Get creative and experiment with compression and bokeh in portraits of your kids at play.
Shoot rock steady
Photos or movies, in-lens Vibration Reduction keeps your shots steady—and lets you shoot at shutter speeds up to 5 stops slower with no camera shake. Enjoy crisp, clear shots in fading light and rock-solid handheld video footage.
Local adventures or far-flung places
Creative snapshots. Beautiful movies. Weighing in at just 315 g, this lens is as compact and lightweight as it is powerful. It’s sealed against dust and drips, so it can stand a little rain in the middle of your adventure.¹
The quality you want
Everywhere you go—anything you do. This powerful zoom lens captures stunning images full of colour, depth, and detail. Sharpness is incredible all the way to the edge of the frame, even when shooting up close or at wide angles. Bokeh is smooth and creamy. Autofocus is fast and performs brilliantly with your Z camera’s Eye-Detection AF to keep focus right where you want it.
Your video travel buddy
Wide city streets. Close-ups on distant faces. The details on that sculpture. With this lens on your Nikon Z DX mirrorless camera, you’ve got all the angles covered when shooting video. Focusing is smooth, precise, silent—and you’ll maintain your point of focus even when zooming. Changes in light are captured smoothly for beautifully natural-looking footage.
Metropolis or wilderness, an incredible minimum focus distance of just 0.20 m at wide focal lengths lets you shoot close subjects in big backgrounds. A 0.40 m minimum focus distance at max zoom frees you to frame fascinating portraits.
Video or stills, customise control and put your favourite settings right at your fingertips. You can assign ISO, aperture, exposure compensation, or manual focus to the knurled control ring—which moves smoothly, quietly, and precisely.
