The Nikon 85mm f/2.8D PC-E Tilt-Shift is a special purpose lens that allows one to tilt and to shift the lens to mimic the movements of large format cameras for serious landscape, studio, tabletop, and architectural photography. The tilt-shift function on this 85mm f/2.8 lens allows adjustment of the focal plane by an angle of +/-8.5º and enables parallel shift of the optical axis by +/-11.5mm. Both tilt and shift can be engaged singly and in combination. The most common use of the shift function is to correct convergence while the tilt function is commonly associated with "miniature" appearing images. You can also use this lens without tilting or shifting as a normal short/medium telephoto (but note that there is no autofocus function). Up to 90° of rotation in 30º increments is also possible and shift movements do not require locking or unlocking for use. Additionally, this lens sports a 1:2 magnification ratio. The Nikon 85mm f/2.8D PC-E Tilt-Shift Lens is ideal for fine art, commercial work, and architecture.

  • • This is a tilt-shift lens and does not have any autofocus. This lens can be shot as a standard 85mm short/medium telephoto or shifted in any angle desired and remain parallel to the sensor. Tilting allows you to tilt the lens instead of moving the lens around in a flat plane parallel to the sensor. Using tilt makes it so the focus plane of the lens is no longer parallel with the sensor.
