Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect lens for product & lifestyle photography keeping perspective in mind. This lens helps produces really sharp & high clarity images keeping perspective in mind. It also allows us to take multiple images using the shift feature & merge them in Photoshop. Check out samples the images I posted. Look & feel is great - feels solid in hand. Focus: Manual focus only. Smooth focus ring (more like a focus barrel) Variable aperture [changes at close focusing distance.. jumps from f/2.8 to f/3.8 when focused to the closest point (Macro)- I thought it was a flaw but in a way helps me get my shots right]. Will now buy the 85mm pc - e

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent lens for landscape, nature and close-up photography This lens is an excellent complement to my D800E. Although I specialize in both architectural and landscape photography, I primarily use it for landscape photography because its focal length is longer than I normally use for architectural work. For landscapes, I often find it helpful to dial in a small amount of tilt (to, in effect, extend the depth of field), and it produces excellent panoramas by shifting left, then right, then stitching the images together. My only caution regarding shift-pans is that the shift in either direction should be limited to about 80% of the shift range, because the resolution drops off noticeably near the periphery of the image circle. For close-ups, the tilt and shift functions are extremely helpful, and for both landscapes and close-ups I find the edge-to-edge sharpness and color rendition of this lens to be very satisfying. Because of the deliberate manner in which I work, I do not find its lack of autofocus to be a drawback; in fact, the focus ring works smoothly and has just the right amount of resistance -- focusing is smooth and precise. This lens might not be for everyone, but for those who understand tilt and shift, and who enjoy the process of making fine photographs, I would highly recommend it. (The accompanying photo is a 3-image shift-pan: left, center & right, with the lens tilted to render both the foreground and background in sharp focus.)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tilt shift macro lens "not only is this a tilt-shift lens it is also a macro lens, this makes it a perfect lens of architecture and landscape. This lens is manual and very sharp."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Use With Caution Most people think PC-E is great for architectural work, and they are right. The Nikkor 45mm PC-E is an excellent performer in and around structures but this lens loves going outdoors- out in the wide open spaces of landscapes. This lens like other Nikkor PC-E has some benefits not many fully realize . It has the power of expanding your field of view. With a PC-E lens you can shift your view up or down making for a spectacular image with very high resolution. PC-E lens performs perfect indoors and around buildings, but don't forget the Nikkor PC-E loves to be taken out in the wild, an amazing tool for landscapes.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Do you need to switch to hand strap? "This is my first hand strap. I got it as a bonus when I purchased the Cotton Carrier-Lite. It is a good quality hand strap and the material is comfortable. Do I need one if it didn't come with the Cotton Carrier-Lite? It depends, if I use a holster (like the one from Cotton Carrier) alone without any camera tether, then my answer is absolutely YES. The reason is a hand strap is the only type of strap that makes sense to me to use together with a holster. It is the must have insurance for my camera. However, if I do not use a holster or I have other mean of securing the camera, switching to a hand strap is not my preference. I can simply wrap a regular camera strap around my wrist and get the same effect and even more secure. What I found was giving too much room for my thumb to access the buttons makes the hand strap too loose. Adjusting the strap too tight makes it difficult to access the buttons. Since I bought the Cotton Carrier system and for sure will use the holster, I switched from regular camera strap to the hand strap. I don't see myself switching the camera strap back and forth all the time and I doubt anyone would."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible There are very few lenses that are worthy of such a price tag. This one is, easily. Perfectly sharp. Beautiful bokeh. absolute control. The only down side is that the controls are opposite than I'd prefer. The shift feature moves laterally when I'd prefer it to move medially in conjunction with the tilt feature. I understand that as a portrait/wedding photographer I'm probably an anomaly, but it would be nice to be able to switch.
