In this review, Gary Wolstenholme takes a look at a highly specialised macro lens with tilt and shift movements, making it ideal for architecture and product photography.

    Outstanding optical performance, Very precise controls, Excellent build quality

    Almost useless hyperfocal scale, Maybe a touch pricey, but you get what you pay for.

I have used this lens primarily for copy/archiving artwork. The tilt and shift function on the lens, along with its 'normal' focal length make this absolutely ideal for this type of work. I will not go on and on about the well documented aspects of this lens' sharpness build quality etc.

  • +

    Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Rugged, Strong Construction

    Lens Creep

18 March 2014

I bought this in order to shoot food. Overhead shots are impossible to do with this lens as the lens does NOT hold the focus when shooting from above. The focusing ring simply moves by itself due to the weight of the moving parts in the lens that are pulled down by gravity.

    Does Not Hold The Focus

19 May 2013

Most people think PC-E is great for architectural work, and they are right. The Nikkor 45mm PC-E is an excellent performer in and around structures but this lens loves going outdoors- out in the wide open spaces of landscapes.

Awesome, sharp lens ! I can almost substitute this with the 50mm 1.4G. The focusing is very easy and lens is solid. I use mainly for weddings with a Nikon D800. Perfect combo. Definitely recommended.
