Nikon announced the PC-E Nikkor 24mm f/3.5D ED, a 24mm wide-angle tilt/shift lens for studio, architecture and landscape photography. Tilt/shift lenses incorporate the ability to move the internal optical elements to produce an effect called perspective control (PC).
The PC-E Nikkor 24mm lens offers a tilt/shift capability range of up to +/-8.5Âº and shifting +/-11.5mm. The lens can be rotated a full 90Â° degrees left or right with convenient clicks-stops at 30Â° intervals. For precise manual focussing, the lens features compatibility with the electronic rangefinders in all Nikon SLRs, and offers auto-aperture control with the Nikon D3 / D300 cameras.
The PC-E Nikkor 24mm f/3.5D ED has a maximum aperture of f/3.5 and a minimum aperture of f/32 and a closest focus distance of a mere 0.21 meters. The lens has extensive sealing against dust and moisture, and weighs 730 grams. The filter/attachment size is 77mm.
The estimated pricing for the Nikon PC-E Nikkor 24mm f/3.5D ED is â‚¬1829 and it is expected to be available this spring. A bayonet hood and soft case are included.
