Nikon 19mm f/4E ED PC-E: Three more Evaluations, Including a Dual Tilt Series + Conclusion

See my wish lists at B&H Photo including my Nikon wish list.

Nikon PC Nikkor 19mm f/4E ED PC-E

See reviews of tilt/shift lenses in DAP.

I’m concluding my review of the Nikon 19mm f/4E ED PC-E with three series and a conclusions page:

The series include images up to 28 megapixels with crops, from f/4 through f/11.

This dual series (two focus positions) in Frosty Wood Round: Tilt and Focus Shift is particularly instructive, and a must-read for anyone working with the Nikon PC Nikkor 19mm f/4E ED PC-E.

While I still think the 19/4E PC-E is a strong effort for Nikon, my enthusiasm for it has greatly diminished now that I see all its limitations. I suspect that to satisfy me, it would have to be a Zeiss Otus of a size about twice the size and costing about $6K.
