This is a great lens and perfect for still life and product photography. It's nice and sharp when it needs to be, but has nice bokeh when using larger apertures. I use it often even when not using the tilt/shift function as I find it to be useful as a normal lens too.
My main purpose for this lens is to manage depth of field with macro photography and other nature / portrait image capture. The lens is capable of creative freedom not possible with other medium format telephotos.A great lens for someone that has grown beyond standard prime lenses.
This lens is awesome. I've been away from Nikon for several years using the Canon 5Dll and 5Dlll, and missed my Nikon lenses! Using it on the new Nikon D810
Most people are probably buying the newer E version of this lens, but since there are still some showing up used, I'll add my review. The E version is said to be a little better but this is a hard act to follow, as the older model is bitingly sharp and well behaved.
My interest in photography started in the 1960 as a serious amateur, with both 35mm film and 4x5 view cameras. I was fascinated by both photographing small animals and architecture, sort of the opposite poles of the art. I ended up using mostly a Leica and then NIkon F.
Little difficult to master, but a great lens. I only wish it were possible to do autofocus. As this is manual focus, it has limited applications, but it's a great portrait lens. I recommend using a smaller aperture to make sure your focus is tack sharp.
I am still in the test phase, but the lens itself is really well built and very smooth. Pictures are sharp and it's easy to find the focus ring.
Very little vignetting, lateral color fringes and no distortion. Using Lightroom and Photoshop I developed scripts to batch correct the color fringes and vignetting. At center point ( no shift/tilt ) their is no correction needed.
I do a fair bit of macro photography, and lately this lens has become my favorite. I tend to be "old school" and for a long time, my setup included an old bellows system with the Nikon 60mm macro.
I Use this for architecture, portraits, products. Very sharp, well built, manual focusing is smooth. Knobs are difficult to operate with gloves, otherwise hard to find faults with this lens.
