Nikon 19mm f/4.0 overview

  • 1Description

Featuring an ultra-wide design prized for architectural and interior subjects, the PC NIKKOR 19mm f/4E ED from Nikon allows you to impart both tilt and shift movements to control focus and perspective, as well as apply the movements independently for more creative flexibility. Up to +/- 7.5° of tilt is possible, for focus control, and +/- 12mm of shift, to adjust perspective and composition, and tilt can be applied parallel or perpendicular to shift. Up to 90° of rotation is also possible using the PC Rotation capability, and shift movements do not require locking or unlocking for use. Characterized by an expansive field of view that is ideal for photographing tight indoor spaces and complex architectural subjects, this lens also offers flexible perspective and focus control to adjust distortion and depth of field.

Complementing the mechanical layout of the lens is an apt optical design, which includes three extra-low dispersion elements and two aspherical elements to reduce chromatic and spherical aberrations for improved clarity and sharpness. Both Nano Crystal and Super Integrated Coatings have been applied to individual elements to reduce flare and ghosting for improved contrast in strong lighting conditions, and a fluorine coating has also been added to the front and rear elements to guard against dust, moisture, and smudging.

Perspective control, tilt-shift lens affords +/- 12mm of shift and +/- 7.5° of tilt, and both types of movements can be applied independently, and parallel or perpendicular to one another. Additionally, 90° rotation is possible left and right, with stops at 30° intervals, and the tilting mechanism can also rotate 90° left with a stop at 45° to suit shooting in the vertical orientation.
Shift movement does not require locking or unlocking during use.
Three extra-low dispersion elements help to reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations for improved clarity and color accuracy.
A pair of aspherical elements control spherical aberrations in order to lessen distortion and increase sharpness from edge to edge.
Nano Crystal and Super Integrated Coatings have been applied to lens elements to minimize surface and internal reflections for a marked reduction in lens flare and ghosting.
Fluorine coatings on the front and rear elements afford protection to the optical system.
Specialized electromagnetic aperture mechanism provides greater exposure control stability and accuracy.

This mechanism limits the compatibility of this lens to the following cameras: D5, D4, D3 series, Df, D850, D810, D810A, D800/E, D750, D700, D610, D600, D500, D300/S, D7500, D7200, D7100, D7000, D5600, D5500, D5300, D5200, D5100, D5000, D3400, D3300, D3200, D3100, and Nikon Z7/Z6 with FTZ.

    Nikon 19mm f/4.0 reviews

    PC NIKKOR 19mm f/4E ED Tilt-Shift Lens is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 16.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flat out best architectural lens on the market This is my go-to lens for large industrial and environmental projects. (I did not purchase it from B&H but from a local dealer) I own the 28 Schneider Pc and 45mm PC-E. Owned the 24 for years and sold it when the 19mm lens came out. The 19mm is spectacular. Incredibly sharp with incredible micro-contrast, color and flare control. You can shift a great deal without fall-off. A perfect lens with the D810. When the D850 is delivered, I believe this lens and camera combo will give medium-format level control and quality. (especially if you use Capture One to process your D850 files.) In short, the lens is perfect.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant lens for landscape panorama images I love dramatic landscapes with wide or ultra wide angle lenses however the effects at the edge or the distortion is something I'm less happy about. Although the perspective shift can be taken care of �in post processing, I wanted a lens that can do panorama shots with edge to edge sharpness, incredible depth of field, no vertical distortion and a print that approximates something larger than the 35 mm perspective. As far as I know only a Tilt - Shift lens can accomplish this. As well, it's original intent as an architectural lens is a terrific feature as well!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent image quality. Fantastic lens: 1. Image quality, first and foremost, is fantastic. I used the lens on photo shoot in Arizona, and I am very pleased with the image quality, including micro contrast. 2. Build quality is solid. 3. Really like the uncoupling of the shift and tilt functions. 4. No complaints about the lack of ability to use a front polarizing filter ... I rarely use a polarizer on anything this wide. 5. The 19mm focal length is great. Not as wide as 15mm and wider than 24mm. This lens lives up to Nikon's highest standards..

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The new standard for Nikon PC Tilt Shift lenses The new standard for Nikon PC Tilt Shift lenses. I own the 24mm PC. It's a great lens. I use it for Architecture, landscapes and sometime portraits. No complaints. When I started looking at the 19mm PC, I wasn't convinced that the extra 5mm of width was worth the big bump in $$. But, I've been a Nikon shooter for decades, so I took a leap of faith. Once I received the 19mm, I could see that Nikon upped it's game along with the price. The lens build quality is a bit better, the controls work a bit better. The lens is a bit bigger. T unlike the other Nikon Tilt Shift lenses, the 19mm ships with the Tilt and Shift functions decoupled (able to use both at the same time). That's the way all Tilt shifts should work. Image quality is phenomenal. The ultra wide angles creates amazing stitched panoramic landscapes. I do have to advise that this lens is not for the casual shooter. It is a precision instrument and it needs to be treated that way. Read the manual, watch a YouTube video and then go create some amazing images.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I think this is better than Cannon 17mm tilt shift lens! I was a little disappointed when it was just announced. I wished it should be at least as wide as what cannon has. But after I bought it, I totally love it! I think 17mm is a little too wide, and you always get too much distortion at the side. 19mm looks much nature! Plus, if you really want wide image, you can always shift the lens and stitch images together! Love, love, love! Highly recommend!
    Date published: 2017-02-02
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific lens! Wish the 24mm was decoupled like this. �A must-have for wide angle architectural pictures. �Be sure to look at the image edges to make sure you have the desired focus before shooting. �Lots of controls on this lens so you need to work a bit more slowly and carefully.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome lens! Glad I bought it! I was thinking about buy if after seeing the reviews. But I can't wait anymore since I have been waiting this lens for years. Glad I bought it! Very Sharp! Must have for Architecture photography!
    Date published: 2016-12-18
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A masterwork! I own the 85, 45 and 24mm PC lens. The 19mm has state-of-the-art sharpness, build quality and, of course, the first Nikon PC lens that be adjusted for both tilt and shift orientation preference. A masterwork.
