Stunning architectural shots

Perspective control and a wide-angle view

Nikon’s high performance perspective control lenses let you quickly adjust the focal plane of the lens—independent of your camera position—to bring an entire landscape into sharp focus, to alter the natural depth-of-field of a scene, to selectively focus on certain subjects, to offset perspective anomolies in architectural shooting and more. The PC-E NIKKOR 24mm f/3.5D ED combines that control and a versatilve wide-angle perspective.

Outstanding image quality

Nikon technology for superb performance

Like all NIKKOR lenses, the PC-E NIKKOR 24mm f/3.5D ED produces truly superior images. Three Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass elements ensure outstanding sharpness and color reproduction. Nano Crystal Coat (N) virtually eliminates the ghosting and flare often seen in lesser wide-angle lenses, while Aspherical lenses (AS) greatly reduce coma and other types of aberration. And since it’s a Nikon, you can expect the highest standard of lens design and durabliity for years of consistent performance.

An outstanding lens in every way. I've owned the 85 PC Micro for several years and have used it in a variety of settings. I recently acquired the 24 PC and it is a stellar performer. Having used 4 X 5 view cameras for almost thirty years it is a pleasure to have similar movements and yet to get instant feedback. I use the lens on both a D700 and a D300S. The lens is sharp with high contrast and the close focus distance enables some unusual landscapes. June 29, 2011
Clear, Colorful & Enjoyable How many times have you purchased a lens and had second thoughts? It has taken me a few years to finally convince myself to buy the Nikon 24mm PC-E. I am very happy with the lens. Using a D700 I read that the lens when rotated will strike the camera body - which it does. However, I just rotate the lens the other direction, placing the larger knob underneath if I need to shift up. Technically this is a fantastic lens and when coupled with a D700 or D3/x your aperture readout is automatic. This is a manual focus lens and requires you to start in the "Default" position to acquire your meter reading before shifting or tilting - It takes just a little practice (retraining yourself). I catch myself having to reset the lens to default sometimes because I forget to get the meter reading first. For those who visit and use your manual settings of your camera you can almost guess the shutter/aperture after seeing the results in your display if you forget; but it is best to get the reading before you do the tilt or shift the lens for your base and go from that. This is a very fun and useful lens, I now realize why it is so sought after by those who shoot landscapes and architect. Level your camera, and shift the lens up (not your camera) to include more sky or down to include more ground, no more tilting your camera and seeing weird converging lines with trees or buildings that fall back from the center. You can also swing the lens left or right to create effects blurring the edges while keeping the center in sharp focus + you can rotate the lens in increments which causes the shift and swing to rotate as well, creating some amazing effects. The lens takes a couple of days to get used to so I spent the entire weekend with this attached to my camera trying to fully explore the new jewel. I mostly do nature photography and have thus far enjoyed the clear, crisp and colorful photos this lens has captured. Some small quirks; The tensioning knobs are kind of small with the shift tensioner requiring more force to lock down the lens once set. The lens does not work "perfectly" with a D700 but I knew that and it just a matter of rotating the lens in the other direction. Pros: Built to Nikon Standards - Solid through and through. Sharp and contrasty. Fairly easy to use - takes a few days to train yourself. Great Results with pleasing images. May 29, 2011
architectural fun! I bought this lens to work on a documentary and architecture project. With it, I've discovered a new way to shoot, showing off the greatness of spaces surrounding me or the subjects. Lately, I've been using it to also shoot objects close up. The shapness is amazing! April 15, 2011
Slick lens I am always happy with the way this lens renders a subject. My only grief is that Nikon doesn't offer the 14mm in a PC lens or I'd buy it too. This lens is contrasty and sharp with great color. It's fun to use and gives great results. April 15, 2011
Like a Medical Device This is a great lens and so sharp and accurate it's a dream come true. We waited for this lens and it lived up to all expectations.. April 14, 2011

Answer: 
Yes, this lens works very well on the D800 despite what you might read on the internet. The only limitations I have found is when shifting horizontally the shift knob will have to be rotated so it is pointing down as it interferes with the built in flash (not enough clearance) if you try to rotate it so it points up so you can see the degrees of shift scale. This in no way affects the lens performance, but some may find it an inconvenience if they want to see the shift scale when performing this function. There is some vignetting when the lens is shifted to the extreme either way so it is probably best to back it off slightly from the extreme shift stop when composing your shot. This is a manual focus lens of which I have found no difficulty in focusing during tilt /shift movements using live view on the D800.

Answer: 
The D800 and D800E can be used with a PC-E lens' shift and tilt features. There may be some vignetting or incomplete coverage when the built-in flash is used and the exposure metering needs to be carefully considered as composition can change exposure.

Answer: 
The lens is a standard Nikon F mount, it will definitely mount on a D800, unless Nikon has changed the type of mount their new camera bodies use and made all lenses obsolete. Whether the rectangle housing and the knobs interfere or not with the built-in flash housing of the D800, judging by the side-by-side photos of the D800 and D700 comparison, there may be slight limitations on shift movement. As for metering and focusing while tilted or shifted, most likely the D800 will not do so while tilted or shifted.

Answer: 
Yes, I recently purchased this lens and it works fine on both our D3 and D7000. However, on the D7000, in certain positions, the tilt or shift knobs can be a bit tight and difficult to get to when you have them in the vertical position right under the built-in flash. It still works, just a bit tight, especially wearing gloves.

I'm planning to buy the D800 but not if it prevents the tilt shift lenses from actually tilting and shifting. Why won't the TS lenses function as a TS lens should function if being used on a D800?

Answer: 
The D90 has an F mount that will allow you to use a wide range of Nikon lenses. Please verify first the list of compatible and incompatible lenses in the user's manual for the D90. PC-E NIKKOR series lenses can not be used with shifting or tilting.

Answer: 
Don't own this lens but a quick Internet search states the D600 like the D800 have more built in flash clearance and full lens operation is possible after rotating the lens 180 degrees. Several websites and blogs confirm this.

Answer: 
Because of the protrusion of the built in flash you would have very limited tilt/shift function.
