Nikon PC Nikkor 19mm f/4 E ED Review

Pc Nikkor 19mm F4 Front Oblique ViewWhenever we look up at a building, our eyes see nothing untoward at all, it all looks perfectly natural. However, whenever we use a camera to do the same thing and reproduce the result on a flat surface then we instantly notice the converging verticals. This is absolutely optically correct, and we accept it when we see train tracks receding into the distance, but not when we see skyscrapers receding into the sky. To satisfy whatever causes this contradiction in our brains the tilt-shift lens was created. At one time the purview of the large format photographer, smaller format DSLRs are also well catered for, albeit it in a more limited way. Let's have a close look at Nikon's new 19mm tilt-shift lens and see how it handles on the Nikon D810 provided for this review.
