Nikon launched two new full-frame lenses today. One is their widest tilt-shift lens yet and the other is an improved 70-200mm F/2.8 constant-aperture zoom.
Nikkor PC 19mm F/4E offers an ultra-wide 19mm focal-length, giving a 97° angle of view on a full-frame. This Perspective-Control lens offers shift and tilt movements of ±7.5° and ±12mm, respectively. For the first time on a Nikon Tilt-Shift lens, the lens can be rotated between the tilt and shift mechanism, allowing more creativity than previously possible. This lens is scheduled to ship next month for a suggested price of $3399 USD or $4499 CDN. B&H Photo is already accepting pre-orders.
Nikkor AF-S 70-200mm F/2.8E FL VR is newly designed zoom with a maximum F/2.8 constant-aperture. It features built-in image-stabilization, effective to 4 stops with a special Sports mode to improve performance when the photographer is tracking moving subjects. As a professional lens, this one is fully weather-sealed. The AF-S 70-200mm F/2.8E FL VR is also scheduled to ship next month. The suggested retail price is $2799 USD or $3699 CDN. B&H Photo is accepting pre-orders for this lens too.
