TOKYO - Nikon Corporation (Nikon) is pleased to announce the release of the NIKKOR Z DX 18-140mm f/3.5-6.3 VR, a high-power zoom lens that is compatible with APS-C size (Nikon DX-format) mirrorless cameras for which the Nikon Z mount has been adopted. Development of this lens was previously announced on June 29, 2021.

The NIKKOR Z DX 18-140mm f/3.5-6.3 VR, an approx. 7.8x high-power zoom lens, realizes extremely high portability with a total length of approx. 90 mm*1 and weight of approx. 315 g. Its wide focal-length range makes the lens ideal for capturing a great variety of subjects during travel as well as for shooting daily snapshots. The NIKKOR Z DX 18-140mm f/3.5-6.3 VR achieves consistent high resolution, regardless of focal lengths or shooting distances, making it a perfect lens for both still shooting and video recording. Its short minimum focus distance of 0.20 m at the maximum wide-angle position makes it an optimal lens for capturing dynamic close-up shots such as tabletop photography. The lens also realizes high vibration reduction performance with an effect equivalent to a 5.0-stop*2 increase in shutter speed, which allows users to concentrate on their work, even during telephoto shooting or in low-light situations where camera shake is likely to occur.

Nikon will continue to pursue a new dimension in optical performance while meeting users' needs, contributing to the development of imaging culture, with the hope of expanding possibilities for imaging expression.
