The Nikon 45mm f/2.8D PC-E

This is a normal-range, Perspective Control (PC) lens featuring tilt of 8.5 degrees, 11.5mm shift, and rotation capability of 90 degrees, allowing complete perspective control. It is perfect for architectural and nature photography, and with three ED glass elements and Nano Crystal Coat, it's amazingly sharp and flare resistant.

Mastering a perspective control lens is not something that can be accomplished in an hour or two. If you don’t have experience with this type of lens, you’ll need a day or two with the manual to practice before tackling an important assignment.

Roger's Take

If you want the ability to tilt and shift on a Nikon, this would be my first choice. The focal length is great for architectural work and some landscapes, and the close-focus ability lets you shoot pseudo-macro at 1:2 magnification, which can be most useful with a tilt-shift. Distortion and vignetting are minimal. Chromatic aberration is well controlled. Image sharpness is good, but not great, and clearly improves stopping down to f/5.6.

Are we out of stock?

If you don't see exactly what you're looking for and that makes you sad, please give us a shout. We might have good news for you. Here's a link to our contact form.

We offer a 3-day inspection period on all sales, during which time you may return the item for a refund of the purchase price, not including shipping.

On this item, we include a LensAuthority 90-day limited warranty. This warranty covers damage that arises from normal use of the item. It does NOT cover accidental or intentional damage. More details are available in our FAQ section.

In addition to the standard 90-day warranty, you may have the option to purchase an extended warranty. If we're able to offer an extended warranty on this item, you'll see a checkbox to add that warranty - see the area just above the "Add to Cart" button.

If you select the extended warranty, you'll get additional protection from Consumer Priority Service ("CPS"). The CPS warranty will take effect after our 90-day warranty ends. However, the CPS warranty term would begin on the date of purchase. For example, if you buy an item with a 2-year extended warranty today, your coverage would end two years from today.
