Nikon PC-E Nikkor 45 mm f/2.8D ED Lens

This Nikon PC-E Nikkor 45 mm f/2.8D ED Lens is a medium-angle lens with enhanced perspective (PC), focus, and depth-of-field control. As the medium-angle version of Nikon’s three perspective control (tilt-shift) lenses, the PC-E NIKKOR 45 mm f/2.8D ED delivers a dramatic view perfectly suited for architecture, interiors, cityscapes, landscapes and more. Featuring Nikon’s versatile tilt, shift and rotation capabilities, advanced lens technologies, and the superior design and construction that have made NIKKOR lenses famous, the PC-E NIKKOR 45 mm f/2.8D ED will expand any photographer’s capabilities and creativity.

Perspective control and a wide-angle view, lets you get stunning architectural shots. For the photographer who does not have a professional view camera, or does not wish to carry such large, bulky equipment around, Nikon’s high performance perspective control lenses let you quickly adjust the focal plane of the lens—independent of your camera position—to bring an entire landscape into sharp focus, to alter the natural depth-of-field of a scene, to selectively focus on certain subjects, to correct for perspective anomalies in architectural shooting, and much more. The PC-E NIKKOR 45 mm f/2.8D ED combines that control with a versatile wide-angle perspective.

Like all NIKKOR lenses, this Nikon Nikkor ED with perspective control lens produces truly superior images. Plus, it offers the 45 mm focal length for that extra bit of magnification that you often need in difficult shooting situations. Three Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass elements ensure outstanding sharpness and color reproduction. Nano Crystal Coat (N) virtually eliminates the ghosting and flare often seen in lesser wide-angle lenses, while Aspherical lenses (AS) greatly reduce coma and other types of aberration. And since it’s a Nikon, you can expect the highest standard of lens design and durability for years of consistent performance.

Nano Crystal Coating is an anti-reflective coating developed by Nikon that virtually eliminates internal lens element reflections across a wide range of wavelengths to enhance the contrast of your images. ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) Glass is an optical glass developed by Nikon that is used with normal optical glass in telephoto lenses to obtain optimum correction of chromatic aberrations. The result is images having virtually no false color or flaring in the detail edges, producing even sharper detailed images.

AS stands for the use of modern aspherical lens elements. This type of lens utilizes non-spherical surfaces on either one or both sides of the glass in order to eliminate certain types of lens aberrations. This expensive, high-tech optical manufacturing process can produce better quality, more realistic images than ever possible with older technology. Nikon's Rear Focusing System is a system in which only the rear lens group moves during focusing, thus eliminating changes in the physical length of the lens when focusing, and enabling faster focusing. These Nikon lenses are designated with "RF" on the lens barrel.
