Yes, this lens works very well on the D800 despite what you might read on the internet. The only limitations I have found is when shifting horizontally the shift knob will have to be rotated so it is pointing down as it interferes with the built in flash (not enough clearance) if you try to rotate it so it points up so you can see the degrees of shift scale. This in no way affects the lens performance, but some may find it an inconvenience if they want to see the shift scale when performing this function. There is some vignetting when the lens is shifted to the extreme either way so it is probably best to back it off slightly from the extreme shift stop when composing your shot. This is a manual focus lens of which I have found no difficulty in focusing during tilt /shift movements using live view on the D800.

The D800 and D800E can be used with a PC-E lens' shift and tilt features. There may be some vignetting or incomplete coverage when the built-in flash is used and the exposure metering needs to be carefully considered as composition can change exposure.

The lens is a standard Nikon F mount, it will definitely mount on a D800, unless Nikon has changed the type of mount their new camera bodies use and made all lenses obsolete. Whether the rectangle housing and the knobs interfere or not with the built-in flash housing of the D800, judging by the side-by-side photos of the D800 and D700 comparison, there may be slight limitations on shift movement. As for metering and focusing while tilted or shifted, most likely the D800 will not do so while tilted or shifted.

Yes, I recently purchased this lens and it works fine on both our D3 and D7000. However, on the D7000, in certain positions, the tilt or shift knobs can be a bit tight and difficult to get to when you have them in the vertical position right under the built-in flash. It still works, just a bit tight, especially wearing gloves.

Question

Does the lens rotation function allow the tilt and shift relationship to interchange from parallel to right angle?

I've read some feedback that it is either or parallel or right angle, and that it takes a technician to change the lens operation.

You could change the tilt and shift relationship by unscrewing the four small screws on the back on the base, rotating the base, and reattaching the base. Canon T/S lenses allow this operation easily at the flip of a switch. As Canon is such a major competitor, I am surprised Nikon PC lenses lack this feature.

Can I mount the PC-E NIKKOR 24mm f/3.5D ED on a D90?

I'm thinking about buying this lens, but when I borrowed my friends I found that the rectangular housing hits on the underside of the flash when I'm trying to mount it. Is there a way to mount this lens on the D90? Thanks

Question

Why won't this lens shift or tilt on the D800?

I'm planning to buy the D800 but not if it prevents the tilt shift lenses from actually tilting and shifting. Why won't the TS lenses function as a TS lens should function if being used on a D800?

The D90 has an F mount that will allow you to use a wide range of Nikon lenses. Please verify first the list of compatible and incompatible lenses in the user's manual for the D90. PC-E NIKKOR series lenses can not be used with shifting or tilting.

Lenses do not record EXIF data. However, mostly all digital SLR cameras record EXIF data of all lenses with a CPU on board. But unfortunately with the PC-E Nikkor line of lenses, including the 24mm, the amount of tilt or shift will not be recorded.

Don't own this lens but a quick Internet search states the D600 like the D800 have more built in flash clearance and full lens operation is possible after rotating the lens 180 degrees. Several websites and blogs confirm this.

Because of the protrusion of the built in flash you would have very limited tilt/shift function.

All PC-E NIKKOR lens with Perspective Control capability incorporate a special tilt/shift mechanism. The shift mechanism enables the lens to be moved parallel to the image plane, so that subjects such as a tall building can be captured faithfully, without the upper part appearing to tilt backward and become thinner. The tilt mechanism changes the orthogonal relationship between the optical axis of the lens and the image plane, allowing you to control the focused area. In landscape photography, you can achieve a focus throughout the entire subject plane from near to distant. You can also achieve focus on a specific part of the subject for emphasis. In actual shooting situations, the shift and tilt mechanisms are used together to adjust perspective, distortion of the subject, and focus area.

Compatibility and useability with Nikon DF

I have two questions related to using this lense on the Nikon DF:

1) Does Nikon df offer automatic Camera Diaphragm Control on the pc-e lenses (Stting the aperture on the camera and not on the lense)?

2) Are there any places where knobs or parts of the lense would interfere with the prism housing overhang when tilted/shifted and rotating?
