Created chiefly for the high-end Nikon D300 and D3, the new 24mm PC (Perspective Control) lens from Nikon can also be used on other Nikon D-SLR cameras, such as the relatively new D60 on which I tested it, albeit with some loss of full automation and functionality.

In this review Gary Wolstenholme takes a look at a highly specialised wideangle lens allowing control of perspective and the focal plane via tilt and shift movements.

Part of Nikon's resurgence during the past year was the announcement in January '08 of three new Perspective Control lenses, a 24mm f/3.5, 45mm and 85mm. The 24mm was the first of the three to ship, (and arguable the most useful for the landscape photographer), and is the subject of this report.

Unfortunately, this is one of those cases where if you think you need this lens, you probably know almost everything about it and the only real consideration is the sticker price.

I definitely have a love/hate relationship with this lens. The love part is great. Very sharp lens, relatively wide range of movements, very solid construction. The CA (chromatic aberrations) are also very well controlled.

First off, this lens is just great as a straight 24mm lens. The color, contrast, sharpness, and especially the lack of any distortion is really amazing. I own 2 other Nikon pro lenses in the focal length range, the 14-24 f/2.8 and the 24-70 f/2.8, and this lens is visibly better than either of them.

Very sharp lens, corner to corner. I am just getting use to PC-E lenses, so there is a learning curve. I have been able to use the lens in both landscape and architecture and the shift function has been very useful. I am also still on a learning curve to remember this is a manual focus lens.

The 24mm PCE on an FX camera is the next best thing to a view camera without the bulk and inconvenience. It works with both FX & DX formats but really is designed for the D3 and D3x. Image control is not quite as versatile as when using a view camera but for most applications, it does a fine job.

    Sharp and built well

    Expensive and bulky.

If you are thinking about this lens then you will know what it can do and why you need it. Not for the casual purchaser. The shift function is pretty straight forward and makes architectural shots and panoramas a breeze.

The Nikon tilt shift is not as flexible as the Canon offering. Pro's say a common fault is the bellows need replacing with very heavy usage.<br /><br />You must read cambridgeincolour on how to use it. Even better go on a weekend course with a pro who uses this piece of kit such as Paul Gallagher.

I rented this lens specifically for the purposes of shooting architecture and landscape images. What I found while shooting is that this lens is limited to both the shift & tilt or �swing� funtion are locked to each other.

As a Landscape photographer I purchased this lens to do portrait and landscape panorama shots, keeping front to back in focus.<br />It takes a while to get used to using it but it is now doing the job.

To state the obvious, Tilt-Shift lenses are often used in architectural photography to avoid have to point the camera upwards to include the top of a building.<br /><br />Now some might say that you could simply use a much wider lens and crop the bits you don't want.

This lens is a gem! If you're used to 'auto everything' this isn't for you. You have to get to know the intricacies of this lens to be able to exploit its full potential. It vignettes at its maximum shift settings, a couple of the knobs are little on the small side, but the positive paybacks are...
