PC NIKKOR 19mm f/4E ED
The PC NIKKOR series*1 consists of lenses that support a shift function, with which the optical axis is moved parallel to the image plane, and a tilt function, with which the optical axis is tilted in relation to the image plane. These functions allow users to control perspective, correcting the distortion of subjects dependent upon camera angle, and bringing entire scenes and subjects with depth into focus (foreground to background). The PC NIKKOR 19mm f/4E ED offers superior optical performance and the widest angle of view in the PC NIKKOR series of lenses. Designed to stimulate a photographer's creativity, the lens supports unique forms of photographic expression with cityscape photography and the creation of fine art, all while responding precisely to the strict needs of professional architecture and interior photographers.
