Nikon has announced a versatile all-in-one zoom for its DX-format (APS-C) mirrorless cameras, the Nikkor Z DX 18-140mm f / 3.5-6.3 VR. Designed for use on cameras such as the Nikon Z 50 and Z fc, it offers an equivalent focal length range of 27-210mm.

It has optical stabilization that promises up to 5 stops of shake reduction for sharper photos without a tripod, and uses 62mm filters. Nikon says it’s equally well suited for still shooting and video shooting, with fast and quiet autofocus.
The Nikkor Z DX 18-140mm f / 3.5-6.3 VR is expected to go on sale in early November for £ 599, and is the 21st lens to join the Z-Mount lens line.
