Jeff's comment is spot on. That said, the 18-140 is part of a tradition of excellent Nikon DX zooms and would be good with either body.
Unless you have a compelling need for resolution, though, my...
Is yours the later G model or the original?
I've had both; actually the earlier one seemed sharper to me, but have the G model now. The earlier one had issues with close focussing though.
My first hand, personal experience is even top of the line pro quality AF nikkor lenses do not and will not take the same punishment that MF Zeiss or MF Nikkors will.
It is superb, but it is big, heavy and expensive. I'm tempted to sell mine and buy the f4 lens. The reason I haven't done so already is I'm scared I'll miss it!

Out of curiosity - What are your two prime lenses that you never leave home without.
I have just one right now, 85mm 1.8G. I plan to get the 28mm 1.8G soon and hope...
Golly, i bought my 200mm f4 AIS new in 1986 for $325 as i recall.
I got in trouble with the missus for that one.
The handy BLS CPI calculator sez that's equal to $692 today; no VR either. So no...
i agree with all your points and personally wrestled with the d600 refurb v new question last month. The net price was about the same as today $1300 v $1600 (net of credits, etc).
I really like mine too. I had/have the oil issue, but it took about 10k actuations to show itself. I can live with it.
I really love the results I get with it overall.
I would say...
i have a somewhat contra-recommendation: a d600 and the rest on lenses and kit. Last month new (not refurb) d600s were going for $1900 with the excellent 24-85VR kit lens. Depending on your...
Happy with my gear. Proud of "some" of my images.
An accurate, and it seems to me accurate, statement of my own view. The gear, as an instrument, cannot be something that...
Thom Hogan reports that there at least three specific problems: "debris" (specific chunks or slivers of material); oil splatters; and dust. Dust, of course, could come from anywhere but the first...
So the real question in play is will mirrorless take over in those sensor sizes. For FF i sorta doubt it, but that comports with my view of FF's market role. it will...
i generally agree with your points -- excepting (ultimate) price -- but would like to mention a different aspect of this question that, as yet, i haven't seen discussed. That is,...
That's where i'm at too. You would think that i should be a target audience: lots of AIS lenses; "old Nikon" design fan (have FM, FM3a, FA, F100); and, these days, honestly rather...

I like the idea but for $2,750, it needs to have Nikon's 51 pt AF. I like the D4 sensor and the retro dials, but it's not enough to justify the price. It's too close to a D800...
i too am a member of the Nikon-fer-35-plus-years-Club, and a shelf of AIS lenses.
I have no problem with the sensor -- 16meg works out to about 7 micron pixel size which is just right for film...
with this lenses, and in general with all AI-s lenses are all metering modes supported (on a Nikon D600)?
Yes, of cause you need to set the aperture...
I was considering the 20mm for my D7000 as a compact walkaround lens, but I found that it wasn't as good as my 16-85 @ 20mm.
Roger that. I found the same for my 24mm...
Yes, the dad-gum thing is 50% heavier than the 70-200f4; i don't know where i got the idea that it was lighter. Well, yes i do: it is about 10% lighter than the 70-200f2.8 (1400g v 1540g).
That would be my sense: that the VR one is on the cusp of release.
I have been on the fence regarding the 70-200f4 vs waiting for the 300VR to replace my somewhat-fuzzy-on-the-d600 70-300VR....
