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.

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.

Yes. It will if you utilize it effetely. Just don't set the camera to shutter speed like 1/60s or have the camera in Auto and expect motion to be stopped.

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.

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.

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.
