London, United Kingdom, 13th October 2021: Nikon today introduces the NIKKOR Z DX 18-140mm f/3.5-6.3 VR, which offers superb image quality and versatility for those shooting at wide, standard, or telephoto focal lengths.
An ideal travel companion, the advanced DX lens has superior optics both when shooting at a distance and for closer shots, meaning it can be used in any photographic scenario – from sweeping landscapes to intricate portraits.
Ideal for those who are progressing from smartphone photography, the easy-to-use lens removes the need for a sizeable kit bag. It weighs just 315 g and its 18-140 mm focal-length range delivers the optimum balance between the light weight needed for superior portability and the ability to capture typical scenes while traveling.
A built-in vibration reduction system, meanwhile, combats hand or camera shake, letting users shoot at shutter speeds of up to five stops slower. This results in crisp and blur free images even in poor light situations, whether it is an atmospheric interior shot or shooting cityscapes at night.

Its autofocus is fast and performs brilliantly with the Z camera’s Eye-Detection AF, to keep focus right where it is needed. This results in beautiful footage from travels and adventures.
Designed to be protected against the elements, the DX lens includes effective sealing against dust and water drops, meaning it can be used in most environments.
