Overview

Bend perspective to match your vision.

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.

Key Features:

  • 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

For the storytellers who bring us reality-bending views of landscapes, cityscapes, architecture and fine art, the realm of possibility just got wider.

For the first time with a NIKKOR PC lens, the direction of tilt operation can be made parallel or perpendicular to shift*, allowing you to control perspective, focus and depth of field like never before. Tilt to create scenes with selective defocus (miniature effect) or sharp focus throughout the scene. Shift to control the effects of keystoning and fix issues of perspective in-camera. In photography or filmmaking, the PC NIKKOR 19mm f/4E ED can help you create images as unique as your creative vision.

* Depending on the combination of shift and rotation, operation may be restricted by mechanical interference between the lens and the camera.

Transformative image quality

Optimized 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

Ideal for architecture, interiors, landscapes and panoramas

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

New PC rotation capability

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?

Exceptional quality

Superior imaging at your fingertips

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.

Additional Features:

  • Aspherical Lens

    A lens with a curved, non-spherical surface. Used to reduce aberrations and enable a more compact lens size. Aspherical lenses minimize coma and other types of lens aberrations, even when used at the widest aperture. They are particularly useful in correcting distortion in wide-angle lenses and help contribute to a lighter, more compact design by reducing the number of standard (spherical) elements necessary. Aspherical lens elements correct these distortions by continuously changing the refractive index from the center of the lens.
  • ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) Glass

    An optical glass developed by Nikon that is used with normal optical glass in telephoto lenses to obtain optimum correction of chromatic aberrations.
  • Electromagnetic Diaphragm Mechanism

    An electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism in the lens barrel provides highly accurate electronic diaphragm or aperture blade control when using auto exposure during continuous shooting. With conventional D/G type lenses, the diaphragm blades are operated by mechanical linkage levers.
  • Nano Crystal Coat

    An anti-reflective coating developed by Nikon that virtually eliminates internal lens element reflections across a wide range of wavelengths. Nano Crystal Coat uses ultrafine, nano-sized* crystal particles to eliminate reflections inside the lens throughout the spectrum of visible light waves (380 to 780 nm) in ways that far exceed the limits of conventional antireflection coating systems. Nano Crystal Coat not only solves ghost effects caused by red light, which was incredibly difficult for previous systems. It also effectively reduces ghost and flare effects caused by light entering the lens diagonally. The result: clearer images.
  • Super Integrated Coating

    Nikon Super Integrated Coating is Nikon's term for its multilayer coating of the optical elements in NIKKOR lenses.
