I don't think we have one. Anyone like the idea of starting a thread for the Tilt/Shift lenses?


Here are a few.

1. 24mm PC-E (used shift)

2. 45mm PC-E (no tilt or shift but pretty darn sharp)

3. 24mm PC-E. No tilt or shift but awesome sunstar at F19.

Thanks guys. Here are a few more.

45mm PC-E (easy to forget but this is also a macro lens).

I hadn't looked much at the PC-E lenses, but man, that 45mm version looks like the perfect product lens!

24mm PC-E. These kinds of shots are what I bought the lens for. In fact, I bought the camera so I'd have something to use the lens on!

I use all mine pretty much as traditional landscape lenses. I like to use manual focus, some tilt, but mainly shift for composition.

Its been a long time since I posted. Please excuse me if this has been brought up before. I thought the Nikkor PC tilt/shift lenses did not fit on the D800, D810 camera series. The flash protrusion on the camera got in the way.
I do have the Nikkor PC 28mm f3.5 shift only lens but I would like to have the tilt capability too! In conjunction with live view I would almost have a view camera!

Now that I am retired I would like to seriously get into landscape and architectural photography. Would a D810 and the Nikkor 24/45/85 PC lenses work? I even contemplated a Canon 5DMx or a 7DMx in combination with the Canon lenses but I rather not. Your help is needed please.

Thanks
Saba

Hi OldProf,

I have a D810 and haven't had any problems with the 24mm or 45mm PC-E lenses. Now, the tilt & shift tightening/adjustment knobs get a little tight if they are vertical as there isn't a lot of space between the flash unit and the knobs. But in practice, it hasn't been a problem. I can still make whatever adjustments that I'd want.

I don't believe the D800 is any different in this respect but someone else can chime in if there are any problems.

Just to keep this thread going...
Here's a three shot panorama with the Nikon 45mm PC-E and Really Right Stuff Pano kit.

Wow Craig. Fantastic demonstration of the images you can get with tilt shifts! All of them have such great clarity, distortion control and sharpness! I didn't think I wanted one until now! .

AHHHH! You guys are feeling my NAS! Stop!


Seriously though, some fine examples of beautiful photography.

With 6 kids still in the house I do not have the time to do this lens justice. Maybe in another 15 years.

Now that is a brilliant use of a pce - something I would not have thought of. It isn't a gimmick, but actually enhances the photo.

Here's another shot from 24mm PC-E. The shift helped me keep all my vertical lines straight (avoids the keystoning you would get by pointing camera upwards).
