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.

Between this lense and 18-200 mm VR II regardless of the focal length range?

Does "VR II" really matter? I know the focal length differs, but regardless of that, just compare the quality.

Nikon can be very confusing with the VR and VR11. The 18-140 has the latest VR even though it is not labeled VR11. As far as IQ I would give the edge to the 18-140.

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. In addition to VR image stabilization, it uses ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass, which virtually eliminates reflections and lens flare for better contrast and Aspherical (AS) lens elements for minimizing aberration and improving image integrity and color. Nikon’s remarkable Silent Wave Motor (SWM) provides ultra-fast, ultra-quiet autofocusing, a major advantage when recording video. And, of course, the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR has NIKKOR’s renowned quality of construction and outstanding optics.
The AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR II is an ideal one-lens solution for DX-format D-SLRs. Its powerful 11x zoom means you can capture just about any shot you encounter or imagine. From breathtaking wide-angle cityscapes and landscapes to action-stopping close-ups, the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR II is adept in a huge range of shooting situations. Nikon VR (Vibration Reduction) image stabilization provides 3.5 stops* of blur free handheld shooting, assuring dramatically sharper still images and HD video capture. Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass elements maximizes optical performance while minimizing chromatic aberration. Nikon’s Super Integrated Coating (SIC) enhances light transmission and offers superior color consistency and reduced flare, and its exclusive Silent Wave Motor (SWM) enables fast, accurate and ultra-quiet focusing.

Nikon's VR (Vibration Reduction) technology is an exciting feature which allows sharp photographs to be taken when the camera cannot be held perfectly still. For more in-depth information please see: http://www.nikon.com/about/technolo...

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

Cleaning Nikkor lenses

This is a general question.

What is the best way to clean the outwards facing lens element of any Nikkor lens? this is for routing cleaning of dust, fingerprints and water droplets.

I do understand that adding a filter will keep it clean, and we will have to just clean the filter. But I want to clean the lens before adding a filter.

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.
