Nikon PC-E FX Micro-Nikkor Tilt-Shift Lens - 85 mm f/2.8D
This Nikon PC-E FX Micro-Nikkor Tilt-Shift - 85 mm f/2.8D Lens is ideal for photographers who do not wish to use/transport a view camera, but who still want the kind of image perspective control with their Nikon DSLR which otherwise requires a true view camera to achieve! A medium telephoto, f/2.8 perspective control lens with a 1:2 reproduction ratio.
Boasting the longest focal length of Nikon’s three perspective control (tilt-shift) lenses, the PC-E Micro Nikkor 85 mm f/2.8D delivers a medium telephoto angle of view plus a 1:2 reproduction ratio, ideal for product/catalog photography and other commercial applications. Its unique tilt, shift, and rotation capabilities give you complete control over the lens focal plane for adjusting perspective, selectively focusing, changing depth-of-field and more.
1:2 macro shooting with perspective control: The compact PC-E Micro NIKKOR 85 mm f/2.8D is ideal for extreme close-up and general photography. Discover a world of unseen detail with stunning sharpness with beautiful background bokeh (image appearance when defocused) in close-up, nature, portraiture, and general photography applications.
Like all Nikkor lenses, the PC-E Micro Nikkor 85 mm f/2.8D produces truly superior images. Nikon's Nano Crystal Coat (N) virtually eliminates ghosting and flare, and Nikon’s exclusive Close-Range Correction (CRC) system enhances performance at close distances. And since it’s a Nikon, you can expect the highest standard of lens design and durabliity for years of consistent performance!
Nano Crystal Coat: An anti-reflective coating developed by Nikon that virtually eliminates internal lens element reflections across a wide range of wavelengths. Nano Crystal Coat solves ghost effects caused by red light and effectively reduces ghost and flare caused by light entering the lens diagonally. This is very important in a Tilt-Shift perspective control lens.
The lens also includes Nikon's Close-Range Correction (CRC) system, one of Nikon's most important focusing innovations, for it provides superior picture quality at close focusing distances and increases the focusing range. With CRC, the lens elements are configured in a "floating element" design wherein each lens group moves independently to achieve focusing. This ensures superior lens performance even when shooting at close distances.
