Nikkor 18-140mm F3.5-5.6G ED VR announced!

An approximately 7.8x high-power normal zoom lens compatible with the Nikon DX format covering a broad range of focal lengths, from wide-angle to telephoto

The Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR high-power normal zoom lens covers the frequently used wide-angle 18mm to telephoto 140mm (equivalent to 27-210mm in 35mm [135] format) range of focal lengths, making it the perfect lens for a wide variety of scenes, from everyday snapshots to vacation portraits and landscapes.
It is constructed of one ED lens element and one aspherical lens element for excellent optical performance that makes superior image quality and clear rendering possible throughout the entire zoom range. Further, the lens is equipped with the vibration reduction (VR) function for camera shake compensation equivalent to a shutter speed 4.0 stops* faster.

Pre-order from B&H Photo | Adorama for $596.95

Nikon also just announced a compact and lightweight Speedlight that is easy to use. The new Nikon Speedlight SB-300 Flash can be rotated up to 120, measures approximately 57.4 x 65.4 x 62.3 mm (W x H x D) and weighs approximately 97g.

I suspect the question you ask here is going to cause Thom Hogan to rip Nikon a new one.

Scratching my head over this one.

Were there some leftover lens parts somewhere?

When the lens tests come out, we'll see if it is better than the 18-200 mm. I might be interested. Don't have any VR lenses yet.

Seems like a refresh of the 18-135mm, w/ VR added. I suppose it will replace the 18-105mm.

More importantly, however, is the fact that it's DX; this will give the "D400 coming anytime soon!" crowd cause for hope. Or maybe not- D400 users wouldn't be likely to buy this anyway.

Thom Hogan will rip Nikon hard for this lens as it does nothing to fill the DX prime holes he writes about all the time. Nikon just will never learn.

I'm not exactly sure this lens would be the best match up to be the kit lens of the D400.

No, it wouldn't, but it's one more straw for the D400 hopeful to grasp at.

No it would not from the perspective of most serious photographers ... which is what we assume a D400 is aimed at ... but Nikon is always thinking about the "pure consumer" who wants the best performer at all cost ... those same consumers often want their super-zoom.

Of course, there are times when even the serious photographer wants a decent walk-around lens ... if the 18-140 performs well, match it up with a D3200 and you have the perfect light-weight kit.

While I have no use for this lens, Nikon also announced a new flash, a small SB-300. This would be a nice size for travel. Not CLS supported, but I could simply stick one of my radio triggers on it for off camera use.

Kenthom Rockhogan will say that it's great but will question the need for it's existence. I suppose someone who likes the 18-200 but cannot afford it will likely look hard at the 18-140.

Maybe they chose 140mm because the d400 will have a crop mode...ok probably not, im starting to lose hope that we will ever see a d400 :'(
