Summary: While it works on DX and FX, the crop factor on DX makes it look like a 42 mm lens. Designed originally for film camera. Natural 28 mm lens on FX. It is totally manual so you need to turn off AF function. You still get the dot in view finder when focused.
Awesome product! very good value, good price for an excellent acquisition

Summary: I bought this lens in order to improve my architectural photography, i.e. to correct perspective and try to get a very good lens for a very good price I like the quality of the lens, very good construction.
This is a must lens for any pro or semi-pro working with architecture.

Summary: This is an older Nikon Perspective Control lens. But as many other older professional Nikon lenses this lens is a bargain for the its price/performance. It is built like a tank just like all older Nikon professional lenses. The quality of craftsmanship is outstanding.
Summary: I have seen examples of keystoning images corrected in Photoshop. Sometimes they look good, but it involves a lot of interpolation which degrades the sharpness of the image. You also generally lose some of the image near the edges of the frame --- just what and how much is hard to judge before hand.
Summary: Turn your Nikon SLR or DSLR into a View Camera at half the price! Bought this lens only a few months ago. I thought I was going to use it a lot more than I did. Someone else will get a lot more use out of it than I have. Cosmetic condition is mint I'd say.
Summary: This lens brings to you a new perspective to make your photographs much better. Of course you can correct perspective distortions with Photoshop but this alternative cuts part of the image and makes it small. Nothing is better than take the picture as it shall be.
