Complementing the normal field of view with tilt and shift movements, the PC-E Micro-NIKKOR 45mm f/2.8D ED from Nikon is a unique lens allowing you to more effectively control focus and perspective. Up to +/- 8.5° of tilt is possible, for focus control; +/- 11.5mm of shift, to adjust perspective and composition; and +/- 90° of rotation is also possible for adjusting the axis of these movements. Further benefitted by the movements, this lens is also a micro optic and provides a 1:2 maximum magnification ratio along with a 9.3" minimum focusing distance for working with close-up subjects.
In addition to the mechanical assets, this lens also features a sophisticated optical design that includes one extra-low dispersion element to control color fringing and chromatic aberrations for improved clarity. Close Range Correction also helps to ensure consistent image quality throughout the focusing range. Additionally, both Nano Crystal and Super Integrated Coatings have been applied to reduce flare and ghosting for improved contrast in strong lighting conditions.
