    Nikkor 50mm f/1.8
    Tiny little lens, known in the UK as a 'pancake' lens. Lovely solid all metal construction, yet little over 200 grams. The very short physical length results in a poor 0.6 m closest focus....

      AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR


      A compact all-in-one lens that's ready for anything.

      If you're looking for an outstanding grab-and-go lens—the kind you'll keep on your camera for nearly every situation—check out the new AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR. Optimized to draw full potential from Nikon’s high-resolution DX-format image sensors, it delivers beautiful ultra-sharp photos and videos with softly blurred backgrounds. Its versatile 7.8x zoom range (18mm to 140mm) lets you shoot everything from wide-angle family portraits to telephoto close-ups on the sports field. 4 stops of VR image stabliization means sharper handheld photos and video, especially when shooting in low light or at maximum focal length. You can even get as close as 1.48-feet from your subject for macro-style close-ups!

      I traded in my little liked Mk 1 Nikkor 18-200mm, which always seemed to be full of compromises, whilst there was still some value in it - and after faltering trying Sigma's new Contemporary 18-200mm (hideous focus issues, as in drastic back/front focus at varying amounts according to the zoom setting and I wasn't going to buy the Sigma USB gadget in case it MIGHT correct it) so I got a brand new white box (from kit) 18-140mm Nikon. This lens takes the best parts of the 18-200mm but without the compromises, so good image quality at all settings and apertures (even wide open at 140mm). Easy to use, focus and have on the camera all day, a useful 27-200mm focal range in old 35mm terms and if I want longer, I use my 120-400mm Sigma or 150-500mm Sigma. Distortion IS hideous at both ends if shooting architecture, the lack of distance scale a nuisance but keeps things simple and costs down, sensible 67mm filters and useful close focus (though far from macro) especially at 140mm. In the UK it does not come with a lenshood, which is unforgivable, as all lens need such, as this lens definitely does. With it, flare control is fairly good. It is all plastic consumer grade and must NEVER be bought at the silly full price but to my surprise, it actually handles really well, good damping of the zoom and a reassurance I was not expecting. Manual focus is better than my even older 16-85mm Nikkor. Image quality can be very decent and even across the frame if used at the normal 1 - 2 stops down and I am most surprised how much I use it on my D7100, whereas I made excuses just to not use that old 18-200mm, which, at 200mm, was just plain poor and mostly unusable. I would say that its range is currently the best for getting the balance between compromise and quality in a usable package.
