I like the 18-140mm more than the 18-200mm... much better weight balance

Summary: I am very glad I purchased this lens. I owned the Nikon 18-200mm VR lens for years, and it was a great lens. But it was very heavy, and gravity would zoom the lens out when it was pointed down. I sold the 18-200mm lens and purchased the "new" 18-140mm from an Amazon seller for $320, and I am very happy with the lens. I pocketed some $$ in the exchange, and now my camera/lens set-up is much more balanced. The weight is much better.
Summary: Great for everyday photos. Focuses fast and quietly. This has now replaced my 35mm, and my 18-55mm as my go to lens. Really don't think I'll go back to those unless there's a very specific need (the 35mm for low light situations maybe). It's a bit larger than the 18-55 but well worth it for the additional range. You can see the photos I've taken with it on my instagram page. Almost all of the ones in the last 6 months are with this lens.
Summary: I'm delighted with this lens. It's sharper than my old 18-70mm (which is saying something) and it has twice the reach. The auto focus is quiet, fast and accurate. The VR is almost silent, and very effective. I like the fact that it has a metal mount and the rubber skirt typical of the "pro" lenses. I'd be even happier if it had a distance scale, but that's a minor point, considering how well the lens performs.
Summary: A fabulous lens... all around great zoom for 98% everyday. Much better than the 18-55mm. A bit heavier, but again, well worth it. Caution: With the built in flash, sometimes there's a black shadow from the lens at the bottom of the photo.
Summary: Sharp, pretty fast focus, and it covers nice range. The kit 18-55 lens didn't zoom in enough for certain situations and I often found myself needing to go wide and somewhat telescopic frequently. This meant changing between my 18-55 and 55-300 too often to be useful. I toyed with the idea of getting the 18-200 but reviews weren't the most impressive and the difference in zoom wasn't a deal breaker.
Summary: It takes sometime to get used to the extra bulk. Everything else is great! See no difference in image quality in comparison to 18-55 that comes with camera! Although the new 18-55 is super light and gives d5300 feel of a point to shoot, I prefer over this when shooting indoors.
Summary: Great range, excellent photos. If you use the settings "RETOUCH MENU >DISTORTION CONTROL" on Nikon cameras like the D7100 and the D3300, the optical distortions disappear. Definitely a lens to keep on your camera for most purposes. For me this is a VR upgrade to the old Nikkor 28 - 105mm D lens that I loved. The motor allows it to be used with the D3300, etc. My hands are no longer as steady as they used to be, and VR is now a necessity. I was lucky to get it at $280.00.
