Enthusiast Nikon photographers have a new lens to look forward to. Today, the company is announcing their brand new 18-140mm f3.5-5.6 lens G ED AF-S DX (VR)–which means that it will have the same aperture range as your 18-55mm kit lens. The lens ia DX lens optic, meaning that it is meant for only APS-C DSLRs and has up to four stops of VR. Plus it has ED glass and Aspherical lens elements.

It will be available for $596.95. But that’s not all that Nikon has announced. More details are after the jump. Also, this may possibly mean that a higher end APS-C DSLR may be coming since we’re getting a new superzoom lens.
