Nikon has announced a new PC Nikkor 19mm F4E ED tilt-shift lens (which the company calls ‘Perspective Control.’) This ultra-wide lens offers 97° of coverage and can shift ±12mm and tilt ±7.5°. Unlike the company’s existing PC-E designs, the mechanism for tilt can be rotated independently from the mechanism for shift, allowing the tilt to be set either parallel or perpendicular to the shift.  The lens has three ED and two aspherical elements as well as Nano Crystal Coating.

  1. A shift mechanism that supports smooth perspective control without the need for lock operation
  2. Adoption of a new “PC Rotation” mechanism that allows users to freely set the direction of shift and tilt operation from parallel to perpendicular to each other
  3. Superior optical performance that begins with excellent resolution all the way to the edges of the frame, making the most of high-pixel-count digital SLR camera capabilities
  4. Adoption of Nano Crystal Coat, that enables sharp and clear images in which ghost and flare is effectively reduced with superior antireflection characteristics
  5. Highly durable fluorine coat that effectively repels dust, water, grease, and dirt applied to the outer surface of the lens element at the extreme front of the lens6086943720
