Nikon PC-E Micro NIKKOR 45mm f/2.8D ED Overview

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.

Perspective control, tilt-shift lens affords +/- 11.5mm of shift and +/- 8.5° of tilt, and both types of movements can be applied independently of one another. Additionally, 90° rotation is possible left and right, with stops at 30° intervals.
One extra-low dispersion element helps to reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations for improved clarity and color accuracy.
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.
Close Range Correction system helps to maintain consistent image quality throughout the entire focusing range, from the minimum focusing distance of 9.8" to infinity. Additionally, the maximum magnification of 1:2 is ideal for photographing close-up subjects.

I shoot products commercially and want to add T/S capability to my offerings. My items are typically hardware parts such as cabinet pulls. Common sizes are 1-1/2” to 4”long. . Shots are usually straight on and slightly above the product. Front side to back side of items is usually 1” - 2.5” (needed DOF). Is this a capable product given this information?
Asked by: Charles
There is no fathomable calculator for P-S lenses that we have come across. However, in our experience, we feel that the lens will give you the wide depth of field (even at an open stop) you desire. Using such a lens requires delving into its milieu because that is the only way will you find out what it can do. We suggest that you research more about P-S lenses and then rent a lens for a test run to see if it works for you. I encourage to push through any discouragement for T-S lenses are a tool where the experienced user unlocks it's capability.

question

What is the sweet spot of this lens? Is it at least equally as sharp as other Nikon lenses?
Asked by: Anonymous
Without using the tilt and shift, the sweet spot will be around f/11. It is equally as sharp as other Nikon lenses.

question

Can this lens do rise & fall and tilt in the same photo? The nearest I can see is that it can't.
Asked by: Anonymous
Yes, the lens can tilt and shift in the same photo. There are limits and you will get vignetteing if you go to far.

question

Has anyone had a Nikon PC-E lens converted to allow you to swing and tilt in the same photo or tilt and rise/fall in the same photo? If so, what was the cost and are your happy with the results?
Asked by: Darcy
I just called Nikon customer service on this issue of converting the lens so as to do rise/fall and tilt in the same photo, and the associated cost. Nikon told me the conversion cost is variable ranging between $346.00 and $699.00. They explained that the variance is based on whether they have to replace lens elements during the process. They added that newer lenses are more likely to hit the $346.00.
