The PC-E NIKKOR lens series features a tilt/shift mechanism that provides extraordinary control over the relationship between the optical axis of the lens and the image plane, thereby enabling Perspective Control.
This function proves particularly valuable for specialized professional users such as architecture and product photographers. Together with the PC-E NIKKOR 24mm f/3.5D ED, released in February 2008, the PC-E NIKKOR series now covers a range extending from 24mm wide-angle to medium telephoto 85mm.

• Wide shifting and tilting range (shift: ±11.5 mm; tilt: ±8.5°) • ±90° lens revolving capability for versatile tilt/shift effects • Maximum reproduction ratio of 1/2 • One ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass element for superior sharpness and color correction by effectively minimizing chromatic aberration • Nano Crystal Coat virtually eliminates internal lens element reflections, effectively reducing ghosting and flare • High-performance Nikon Super Integrated Coating delivers superior color reproduction while substantially reducing ghosting and flare • Rounded 9-blade diaphragm for more natural appearance of out-of-focus image elements • Lens aperture can be preset by using aperture ring and aperture stop-down button • With the Nikon D3, D700 and D300, auto aperture control with electromagnetic diaphragm is possible • Dust and moisture-resistant for reliable use even in harsh shooting situations
