Adding to the recently announced PC-E Nikkor 24mm f/3.5D ED lens, the PC-E Micro Nikkor 45mm f/2.8D ED and PC-E Micro Nikkor 85mm f/2.8D expand photographic possibilities of Nikon DSLR cameras. These newly introduced lenses features a tilt/shift mechanism that alters the relation between the optical axis of the lens and the image plane, thereby enabling Perspective Control (PC) which is ideal for architecture and product photography.
Up to these recent announcements, only Canon had any perspective correction lenses in production. This meant that many photographers were left no choice but to go with them for perspective control. Nikon’s new offerings cover 24 to 85mm among 3 perspective control lenses with moderate apertures of f/2.8 or f/3.5. Being highly specialized products, having such lenses enable more high end professionals to chose Nikon.
