Summary: The first thing that came in my mind when I first tried this wide angle tilt and shift after buying it: "why didn't I buy this lens before???" I always thought that these lenses were more appropriate in architectural photography, but they can do much more than that. For landscape, it is the perfect lens. First, its performances without using the tilt and shift are staggering. The sharpness and contrast are very impressive.
Summary: This is my second tilt/shift lens from the current Nikon crop. I use the 85mm for macro and product photography, and it's been a terrific addition to my collection. When I wanted something more for nature and architecture, I decided to head to the other end of the scale and go with the 24mm, and I've been completely happy with it so far.
Summary: I've owned the 85 PC Micro for several years and have used it in a variety of settings. I recently acquired the 24 PC and it is a stellar performer. Having used 4 X 5 view cameras for almost thirty years it is a pleasure to have similar movements and yet to get instant feedback. I use the lens on both a D700 and a D300S. The lens is sharp with high contrast and the close focus distance enables some unusual landscapes.
Summary: How many times have you purchased a lens and had second thoughts? It has taken me a few years to finally convince myself to buy the Nikon 24mm PC-E. I am very happy with the lens. Using a D700 I read that the lens when rotated will strike the camera body - which it does. However, I just rotate the lens the other direction, placing the larger knob underneath if I need to shift up.
Summary: I am always happy with the way this lens renders a subject. My only grief is that Nikon doesn't offer the 14mm in a PC lens or I'd buy it too. This lens is contrasty and sharp with great color. It's fun to use and gives great results.
Summary: Adding to my collection of Nikon and Zeiss lenses, this is a totally different piece. I did not pay attention very much until I have had tried from my family member, that was how I convince myself this is what I should have. This lens quite unique and capture sharp images for landscape and cityscape and adding to its feature which I like more because is a macro lens. Soon I have the images I took on my Mac monitor, then I know that was the right choice.
