Lens Review
Introduction | Nikkor 18-140mm f3.5-5.6 ED VR lens performance | Nikkor 18-140mm f3.5-5.6 ED VR versus competition | Conclusion

We were very impressed by the previous iteration of this lens, but the new model is even more impressive overall. Nikon has not only increased sharpness levels, perhaps more importantly; uniformity has been improved throughout the zoom range and at all aperture settings. 

While the lens has seen a jump in price up to $600, from $480, there has been a significant improvementin optical performance. That and inclusion of stabilization counter the price premium, making the new 18-140mm a promising addition to the range.
