The AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR only comes with the lens caps. There is no lens hood included. However the HB-32 Bayonet Lens Hood is available for purchase.

It is recommended to turn it off, if you use a decent tripod it should be sturdy enough not to need VR

why did nikon not have made an all metal lens mount for the 18-135, 18-105,18-55 lens line up.. there happens to be a company that is now making an all metal mount replacement for these three lenses I believe it made of aluminium, and painted in black , why the heck, Nikon company did not do the same to avoid the plastic mount breakage problems that so many photographers encountered in the past including myself

Question

Is the lens completely compatible with d3200? AND, will this lens cast a shadow if using the built-in flash of D3200?

I know that the 18-300 and 18-200 will cast shadow with built-in flash of D3200.

Now, I am exploring the 18-140 to see if I can get away without having to invest in an extra speed light.

Yes lens will work just fine with the D3200. As for shadow it all depends on the situation, generally if shooting close then the flash may cause a shadow, again, depends on what you are taking pictures of and how close they are.

The widest angle DX lens in the current NIKKOR line up is the AF-S DX NIKKOR 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5G ED Lens. The widest angle DX prime is the AF DX Fishey-Nikkor 10.5mm f/2.8G ED fisheye lens.

Unfortunately Nikon cannot speculate about future products or enhancements until official information is announced on our web site: www.nikonusa.com.

Question

Lens Fungus?

I've been reading on lens fungus here lately. I currently live in MD where temp and humidity tend to fluctuate regularly. Has anyone on the forum had any issues before with fungus on the lens? Was it inside the lens or on the outside of the lens? What do you do now to protect your lenses from fungus? I just got my camera and want to know what the standard protocol is for preventing damage like this to my lens. Currently, I don't use it every day and it mostly sits on top of my cabinet with the lens cap on.

Fungus is caused by dust and moisture inside the lens. The dust is almost impossible to control but without moisture it will not turn to fungus. Store the camera in a camera bag or a box with some silica gel packets. Always dry off a damp camera and try to avoid extreme sudden temperature changes.

The AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR delivers vibrant, detail-rich photos and videos across its entire zoom range. Zoom out for an 18mm wide-angle view that’s great for group shots, landscapes or any time you need to fit more into the frame. Zoom in for 140mm of telephoto reach—enough zoom to capture close-ups of your favorite player from the sidelines. The AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR versatility is strengthened by 4 stops of VR image stabilization. Capture sharp, shake-free handheld photos and videos in low-light situations, when you want to use slower shutter speeds, and at telephoto distances, when even the smallest amount of camera shake can ruin a shot.

The powerful AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR zoom lens lets DX-format D-SLR users reach 300mm super-telephoto with clarity and sharpness, thanks to built-in VR II (Vibration Reduction) image stabilization. In addition, the new High Refractive Index (HRI) lens—a first for the NIKKOR lineup—achieves clear, high-contrast images at every aperture and focal length yet contributes to making the lens body slim and compact. A practical, versatile lens, the AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR is ideal for those who want a single lens that can handle just about any shooting opportunitiy. The compact AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR, with its High Refractive Index (HRI) lens element and 2 Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass elements, lets you easily capture far off images, bringing all the action up close. Nikon VR (Vibration Reduction) image stabilization provides 3.0 stops of blur free handheld shooting, assuring dramatically sharper still images and HD video capture.
