PC NIKKOR 19mm f/4E ED
Nikon takes compositional flexibility to a new level with the first FX-format perspective control (PC) lens to employ two PC rotation mechanisms. Ideal for architectural, fine art, and landscape photography, the PC NIKKOR 19mm f/4E ED is made for photographers who have a keen sense of space.
Thanks to its picture angle and unique tilt, shift, and double-layer rotation capabilities, this manual focus lens enables photographers to shoot from the perfect starting point. Both tilt and shift can be engaged individually, and in combination, essentially replicating the movements of a large-format view camera. Photographers can exercise extensive control over the lens’ focal plane, and easily shift to create images unaffected by convergence. Or tilt to create landscapes that are sharp from the foreground to the background, without the need to close the aperture as you would with standard lenses.
The 19 mm angle of view is ideal for large structures and spaces, and the unique optical construction ensures the distortion common in wide-angle lenses is minimised, even at the edges of the frame.
• Ultra-wide-angle perspective control lens with tilt/shift capabilities
• First NIKKOR PC-E lens that can be tilted parallel or perpendicular to shift
• Tilt and shift independently and then rotate up to 90° with new PC Rotation capability
• Designed for landscapes, cityscapes, architecture, interiors and fine art photography and filmmaking
Optimised for High-Resolution Cameras
As an ultra-wide-angle lens and a perspective control lens, the PC NIKKOR 19mm f/4E ED has to work double duty combating distortion and glare. And does it ever. Three Extra Low Dispersion (ED) glass elements and two Aspheric glass (AS) elements virtually eliminate chromatic aberration and coma, even at the widest aperture setting. Nano Crystal Coat (N) increases backlight tolerance for clear images with minimal ghosting and flare. Like all NIKKOR lenses, image quality comes first with the PC NIKKOR 19mm f/4E ED.
Prized Angle Of View
A 19mm angle of view on FX cameras is very similar to the angle of view prized by many large- and medium-format photographers. This sweeping, ultra-wide perspective is ideal for landscapes, cityscapes, interiors, architecture, horizontal or vertical panoramas and filmmaking, and it gives you a broad, versatile brush with which to paint your images.
Maximum Perspective Control
For the first time, a NIKKOR lens can be tilted and shifted independently and then rotated up to 90°. Tilt to control the plane of focus—creatively or precisely, the choice is yours. Shift to control perspective or create panoramas. Shift operation no longer requires locking and unlocking—smoothly and seamlessly make adjustments. What thrilling new views will you discover?
The new PC NIKKOR 19mm f/4E ED joins other PC NIKKOR lenses in the Gold Ring Series, which include only PC NIKKOR lenses with Nano Crystal Coat and pro-grade build quality. These other lenses include the PC-E Micro NIKKOR 45mm f/2.8D ED, PC-E Micro NIKKOR 85mm f/2.8D, PC-E NIKKOR 24mm F3.5D ED.
