Nikon has recently announced a new AF-S DX Nikkor 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR Lens targeted at the Nikon DX-format range of DSLR cameras. In addition to this the announcement also included an SB-300 compact Speedlight flash. In terms of tech specs the new lens offers about 7.8x optical zoom equivalent to 27-210mm in 35mm. The new lens should provide a worthy update for the Nikkor 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6G lens as it includes an ED lens element plus one aspherical lens element, enabling better vibration reductions for camera shake up to 4.0 stops. A Silent Wave Motor complements everything for fast and quiet auto-focusing.

In a move that will likely delight most Nikon 1 owners, Nikon have relased the 1 Nikkor 32mm lens. While it does offer a reasonable 86mm equivalent distance what makes it really special is that it is an extremely fast telephoto lens at f/1.2 aperture. This should make it perfect for low-light shots, action shots and portraits that don't have optimum background lighting or are a bit soft.
