Questions & Answers for Nikon Inc. PC-E Micro NIKKOR 45mm f/2.8D ED

Question

PC-E 24mm / 45mm or 85mm? Which one?

According to lens specs PC-E 24mm is only Tilt/Shift lens ..... I wonder if PC-E Micro 45mm or PC-E Micro 85mm can create Micro Photos as well as AF-S VR Micro-Nikkor 105mm f/2.8G IF-ED??

Can anyone put here some link for mor information or SAMPLE PHOTOS of MICRO PHOTOS taken by PC-E 45mm and PC-E 85mm.

Thanks.

What do you shoot mostly?
I myself, would choose 24mm because I would mostly use for
wide landscape etc..
I believe the 45 mm is macro as well , not sure if 1/1 ratio as the 105mm is.
The 45 and 85mm would be more portrait work
or tighter scenics...
I would think of what I would be using it for the most
and choose what best fits your photography needs...

Question

Is the 45mm tilt shift micro lens suitable for serious macro photography?

How does this micro lens differ from a macro lens?
Can it be used with extension tubes or on a bellows?

A Nikon lens specially designed for close-up photography. Micro-NIKKORs focus from infinity down to a reproduction ratio of 1:1 or more without accessories. The barrel of a PC lens can be shifted so that you can keep the plane of the film or sensor parallel to the subject. Useful for photographing elongated or tall subjects, such as buildings

Question

Can Nikon alter this lens so that the tilt function is on the same plane as the shift function? As it is, the tilt plane is 90° to the shift plane.

Yes, for a fee Nikon Service can modify this lens so that the tilt and shift are on the same axis. Please see the following page for information on sending your lens to service. http://www.nikonusa.com/en/Service-...

Please be sure to clearly specify the modification that you require. Also specify if you need the knob to be changed to a smaller size in order to accomodate for a specific camera design.

Question

Why does Nikon NOT recommend PC lenses with the newest, high-megapixel DSLR's, e.g. D800?

Please explain what the optical and quality issues are that lead to Nikon's recommendation, and is a fix likely to be available?

Perhaps one just has to accept some, perhaps minor, degredation in quality or image softness, which can be overcome by the high-megapixel image and the ability of sharpen (capture, creative, output) when the image is processed, no?

Are we just splitting hairs here?

Small knob must be on top due to built in flash housing protrusion. Slightly limits amount of tilt.
No image problems. Look at this link and notice what lens Nikon used for sample imagine #1 for D800E.
