Excerpt: While I hope to create a full Nikon 45mm f/2.8D PC-E Micro Lens evaluation, my first priority is to include results from this lens in the lens comparison tools. This page currently exists because it is required by the database and content management systems for the posting of those standard test results.
Summary: Improvements over the existing optics are significant in both the operational and optical areas while the added focal length in this new range of PC-E lenses will be most welcomed by some. The ‘E' in the PC-E title stands for the Electronic operation of the aperture, making use of the lens a lot simpler than the older fully manual versions.
Pros: Easier to use than previous models, Good range of adjustments, Excellent image and edge performance, even on full frame sensors
Cons: Limited usefulness, although it is a specialist optic, Costly for occasional use
