Nikon PC-E Micro-Nikkor 85mm f/2.8D

The last of the three new Nikon PC-E tilt/shift lenses is now appearing in stores. I’ve previously discussed the 24mm f/3.5 and the PC-E Micro NIKKOR 45mm f/2.8D. The PC-E Micro-Nikkor 85mm f/2.8D completes the trio (see Nikon specs).


Nikon PC-E Micro Nikkor 85mm f/2.8D

The 24mm and 45mm models seem to be chronically out of stock. You might want to act now if the PC-E 85mm is on your list.

I likely won’t buy the new PC-E 85mm, even though it’s no doubt a slightly better lens. Why? I own the existing model already, and while it is not as convenient to work with on Nikon bodies as the newer PC-E version, it works great with an adapter on Canon and offers outstanding image quality in infrared. The PC-E (electronic aperture) lenses aren’t really practical to use with an adapter on Canon EOS, which is disappointing for us dual-brand shooters.

For the 85mm focal length only, you could also consider a nice used copy of the previous model, which is still sold new—no doubt some users will trade up, which means bargains on the old one. The existing model uses a plunger to stop down the aperture. Since it’s a delicate lens, don’t buy a banged-up one.

Get the Nikon PC-E lenses at B&H Photo or Adorama. Search for "Nikon PC-E".
