The Nikon F-mount 24mm f/3.5 ED AS UMC Tilt-Shift Lens from Bower is a wide-angle, full-frame lens fitted with perspective control and tilt-shift functions. A tilt-shift lens allows the user to control perspective and correct convergence of lines within the frame, making it especially useful for architecture, landscape, and product photography. The optical tilt mechanisms provide precise control of depth of field along with perspective control. This 24mm f/3.5 lens is compatible with both digital and film formats and, when used on a DX sensor, provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length of 36mm.

The tilt-shift function on the 24mm f/3.5 lens allows adjustment of the focal plane by an angle of +/-8.5° and enables parallel shift of the optical axis by +/-12mm. The tilt-shift section of the lens rotates left 90° (with 30° click-stop adjustment) and the lens mount can rotate left or right by 90° (with 30° click-stop adjustment).

The lens is comprised of 16 elements in 11 groups, including two aspherical elements and two extra-low dispersion (ED) elements, which reduce chromatic aberrations and provide sharp details with accurate color separation. Multi-layered, anti-reflective UMC coatings on each lens element allow even light transmission, minimizing flare and ghosting.

    Comments about Bower 24mm f/3.5 ED AS UMC Tilt-Shift Lens (Nikon F Mount):

    This is a really nicely constructed lens, far more robust and well-built than I had reason to expect from the more-than-reasonable price. It is extremely flexible and appears through the viewfinder of my D700 to have excellent optics. The images will tell, of course, and I have not had cause to put that aspect of the lens to the test yet.
    It is heavy and completely manual (no surprise to me in either case), but I grew into photography with manual lenses and stop-down metering, so that is not a significant impediment. I plan to use it for architectural shooting and for photographing dioramas.
