I was shooting 4x5 before buying my first DSLR in 2005. I kept shooting 4x5 along with the DSLR because the lens movements allow me to do things I otherwise couldn't. Ninety percent of the reason I bought a D800E was so I could use the 24mm PC-E on it. I too wish an ~18mm PC-E would become available, if not from Nikon at least from Sigma.

My solution has been to send my (2) kids to college. The youngest is after a degree in computer science. The idea is they can get good jobs so I can quit mine.

Depends on what you shoot. I do a lot of architecture/structures and needed something wide. So, 24mm was a no-brainer. I keep thinking I want a 45mm too, for landscapes. The shift movement works well with the 24mm, and the tilt is more evident with 45mm. I use shift more than tilt so........

Try a 2x TC. That gets you to 48mm, close enough to 45mm.

Getting the older PC 85/2.8 "D" instead of the newer "PC-E 85/2.8" might save a 1/8 of a liver And the old D-type 85 is a great performer too.

Yeah, I tend to use the 24mm more than the 45. But for tilt effect, the 45mm does this better.

Ok, I think this might be my favorite image made with a tilt-shift lens. I used the shift to move horizontally. I also liked the sunstars on the lights. (I also layered in a shorter exposure to capture the "KC" on the building which was rotating messages every few seconds).

This was with the 24mm.

Posting another to keep this thread going.

This is with the 24mm PC-E at F4. Tilted to capture tulips to top of waterfall.

I own the 45 which I use for work nearly daily. I've shot the 24 and owned the 85 at one time or another and the 45 is the only lens I thought really lived up to 36mp. The others are very good lenses, but I think the 45 is special. Rent one and give it a run, I bet you'll like it. I just wish the PC-E's came with a tripod foot like the new Hartblei 40/4. If I could justify the cost, I'd have one on order.

Thanks for the info, Josh.
I thought 85 will be too long for landscape, couldn't decide between 24 and 45. Leaning toward to 45. Why do you need tripod, for 2.65lbs weight?

Steve,

A tripod foot (outboard of the movements) allows you to shift the lens parallax free, since the lens remains stationary and the camera moves.

Just goes to show, there's always something better, or perceived to be better... that someone wants. How much is this Hartblei lens anyway and where can I buy one?

Actually, now I do want one

I think there are actually quite a few people out there who find the foot useful for the same reason I do/would (mentioned above). I know there's at least one company making a tripod foot adapter for the Canon TS-E lenses. I've thought about seeing if I could have something fabricated for my 45 PC-E.

The Hartblei's are custom order only I believe. I have no idea what they cost, but I know they aren't cheap!
