5 Reviews

Product 20065



Control perspective, focus and depth of field like never before with the first NIKKOR PC lens that can be tilted parallel or perpendicular to shift. (Depending on the combination of shift and rotation, operation may be restricted by mechanical interference between the lens and the camera). Its ultra-wide 19mm angle of view and superb image quality make it ideal for landscapes, cityscapes, architecture, interiors, panoramas and fine art photography and filmmaking. Bend perspective to match your vision.

    The Nikkor 19 f/4 PC ED is simply the best offering from Nikon

    Posted by Henrik Bridger on September 9, 2023

    This lens is something extraordinary and requires some skill and patience to master. Having said that, if you are familiar/used to/interested in tilt shift lenses, this masterpiece from Nikon/Nikkor is it! Please look no further! While attending a photo workshop early 2021, I was casually offered to try out our instructor’s copy of this lens. He simply asked me if I wanted to try his and then handed me his lens while asking me to try not to drop it… I took two photographs with this lens and that was it! Drove home and ordered my own copy!While I also own a large collection of wide angel lenses including Nikkor’s Z 14-24 f/2.8 S, Zeiss’s Milvus 15, 18, and 21mm f2.8, and other Nikon/Nikkor lenses, this lens stands out with its different capabilities, which of course makes it unique.Additionally, the Nikon/Nikkor 19mm f/4 PC-E has absolutely no distortion whatsoever, which is most impressive.This is my favorite lens from Nikkor/Nikon ever made! I photograph landscape and some cityscape mostly and this lens offers everything you’d ever want! Tilt and shift together or on their own and you will get stunning images! It is simple the one of finest Nikon/Nikkor landscape/architecture lenses ever!

    This lens is amazing, it is sharp all over from f/4 to the point of diffraction on you particular bod. You don’t know you need this lens until you see what it can do. I pair it with the D850, and it makes breath taking, amazing, tack sharp high quality panoramas near gigapixel . On a tripod, with wireless release, and mirror front curtain, if available, turns any 8XX body into a Medium Format. Bravo Nikon, and Kudos!

    My new favorite Nikon lens is just exquisite. Nothing but first class.

    I have the 24mm PCE lens on board, and I have extremely happy with the results from the lens. However the 19mm E is the absolutely hands down the sharpest lens that I have ever purchased.
    This is an exceptional lens, and not a lens for every photographer.
    If you are interested in landscape and architecture photography is the lens, my friends.
    Expensive yes, however so is a first class ticket on an airplane. Think about it. This lens is worth the first-class price, for a first class photographic lens.

    The most expensive lens I own.. sharp, able to shoot in tight areas, very very little distortion and keeping visual perspective intact.

    I have the 24mm pc-e but I needed what the canon had to offer 17mm tilt shift for tighter spaces, but I love the Nikon for its resolution and dynamic range and user interface. Lucky they introduced the 19mm PC-E it was really good timing. New and smart design. Lens feels solid, it has a coating which won´t allow dust to settle on.
    Now I can make images which were previously impossible.

    What a piece of glass!

    This lens is certainly not meant for everyone. But if you´re the kind of photographer who needs it, you will be extremely happy with it. It is sharp as a new X-acto blade, all distortions have been designed out of it best I can tell, the build quality is A, and the movements are smooth and decisive. Of course for $3400 you would hope for all these things, but it delivers in spades. Put this on a D810 and you´ll think the 810 name means ´´8x10´´ (which I used to shoot with, btw). Couldn´t be more pleased. The only ´´flaw´´ is the rotation lock is hard to find with your finger is the lens is shifted right. That and it does not work on many Nikon bodies.
