Nikon has released the Z 18-140mm f/3.5-6.3 DX VR, the last of the 3 DX mirrorless lenses on the Nikon Lens Roadmap. https://www.nikonusa.com/en/nikon-products/product/mirrorless-lenses/nikkor-z-dx-18-140mm-f%252f3.5-6.3-vr.html

It looks like a well designed and constructed lens, with some nice features. The price is reasonable ($599 US). It is expected to ship in November.

I am personally undecided on this lens. It is a nice bridge lens over the current 50mm switch point for the 2 current DX Z lenses, but I would not carry it as a third lens. A 18-200 or longer superzoom, all-in-one, would have seemed more useful. And I am still not sold on Nikon's use of f/6.3 as the minimum aperture. This lens, likely, gets away from f/3.5 very quickl as you zoom out. I realize that higher ISO will cancel out the low light penalty on shutter speed, but there is no working around the Depth-of-Field limitations.
