Nikon announces NIKKOR Z DX Zoom lens

Posted on Oct 19, 2021

The Nikkor Z DX 18-140mm f/3.5-6.3 VR is the latest addition to the Nikkor Z Range

Nikon’s latest lens is a powerful 7.8x lens that offers wide, standard and telephoto focal lengths. The lens delivers high optical performance across the full 18-140mm focal-length range and boasts an impressive minimum focus distance of 0.20m at wide focal lengths. This makes the Nikkor Z DX a great option for travel photographers looking to shoot in a variety of different scenarios, from open landscapes to close-up portraits.

The Nikkor Z DX is a great option for those looking to step up their photography from a smartphone to a camera, without being weighed down by heavy kit. The lens has a compact and lightweight body, weighing just 315g – perfect for use while out and about.

Its built-in vibration reduction system reduces hand and camera shake, enabling shutter speeds of up to five stops slower to produce clear, sharp-focused images. The lens performs well in low light situations, allowing you to capture night-time cityscapes and interior scenes with great clarity.

Fast autofocus combined with the Z camera’s Eye-Detection AF delivers images with precise focus. Users will be able to carefully control exposure using the lens’s electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism, which uses signals from the camera to achieve precise aperture control and consistently stable exposure.

The lens can be used for video as well as stills and incorporates easy-to-use controls. Its weather-proof design means that it can be used in practically any environment.

The Nikkor Z DX 18-140mm f/3.5-6.3 VR will be available from November, retailing at £599.00. For more information, please visit Nikon’s website.
