The PC NIKKOR 19mm f/4E ED is a high-performance, ultra-wide-angle 19mm lens with perspective control, delivering an angle of view perfectly suited for capturing architecture, interiors and landscapes in detail-rich images. A first for PC NIKKOR lenses, this lens is designed with a new Perspective Control Rotation mechanism, enabling the direction of tilt and shift operation to be adjusted independently to complement diverse shooting situations. Its three Extra-low Dispersion glass elements, two aspherical lens elements and Nano Crystal Coat work in tandem to optimise sharpness and contrast, while the fluorine coat ensures easy maintenance and lens durability.

A VERSATILE ANGLE OF VIEW

With a 19mm focal length among the PC NIKKOR series lenses*1, the PC NIKKOR 19mm f/4E ED produces a dramatic ultra-wide-angle view, making it ideal for architecture and interior photography. This high performance perspective control lens also lets you quickly adjust the optical axis of the lens—independent of your camera position—to bring an entire landscape into sharp focus, to alter the natural depth-of-field of a scene, to selectively focus on certain subjects, to offset perspective anomalies in architectural shooting, and more.

OUTSTANDING OPTICAL PERFORMANCE

The PC NIKKOR 19mm f/4E ED delivers high-definition rendering, retaining superb resolution even at the periphery areas. Three Extra-low Dispersion glass elements reduce chromatic aberration to enhance sharpness and contrast, while two aspherical lens elements correct distortion. The Nano Crystal Coat with its high anti-reflection properties effectively minimises ghosting and flare effects even when light enters the lens diagonally, to achieve truly superior images.

PRECISE CONTROL IN ANY SHOOTING SITUATION

For the first time on PC NIKKOR lenses, the PC NIKKOR 19mm f/4E ED features a new Perspective Control (PC) Rotation mechanism that can be accurately adjusted based on the needs and intentions of the photographer. With this mechanism, the direction of tilt operation can be made parallel or perpendicular to shift, to suit a wide range of shooting situations. The rotating of tilt relative to shift can be rotated up to 90° with a stop at 45°.

EASY MAINTENANCE ON THE GO

NIKKOR’s original fluorine coat effectively repels dust, water droplets, grease or dirt for easy removal and maintenance on the go. The high peel-resistance performance provides extra durability, while the anti-reflective effect ensures clarity in images so you can capture your creative vision wherever your assignments take you.

*1 The lineup includes four lenses: PC NIKKOR 19mm f/4E ED, PC-E NIKKOR 24mm f/3.5D ED, PC-E Micro NIKKOR 45mm f/2.8D ED, and PC-E Micro NIKKOR 85mm f/2.8D.

 

FX-FORMAT COMPATIBLE, ULTRAWIDE-ANGLE PC NIKKOR LENS THAT FEATURES SHIFT AND TILT MECHANISMS TO CONTROL PERSPECTIVE

The optical axis of this lens can be shifted horizontally or vertically parallel to the camera’s image plane, or tilted up/down or right/left in relation to the image plane. With these mechanisms, various photographic techniques, such as correcting perspective distortion of a subject caused by the camera angle, achieving focus of subjects located at different distances from the camera without stopping down the aperture, or making depth of field shallower so that only a specific part of the subject is focused, are made possible. The PC NIKKOR 19mm f/4E ED provides the maximum shift amount of ±12 mm and the maximum tilt amount of ±7.5°. All functions of this lens can be utilized without any restriction with the D5, D4 series, D3 series, D810 series, D500 and Df cameras.

ULTRAWIDE-ANGLE 19 MM FOCAL LENGTH DELIVERING AN ANGLE OF VIEW THAT IS FAMILIAR TO PHOTOGRAPHERS OF ARCHITECTURE

19 mm focal length* in FX/35mm format, the shortest among PC NIKKOR series lenses**, provides an angle of view equivalent to that generally used when shooting architecture and interiors with large- and medium-format cameras. Consequently, it will be familiar for and its high maneuverability appreciated by many professional photographers of interiors, in particular. The focal length of this lens and its perspective control functions are also ideal for advanced amateurs who desire photographic expression utilizing an ultrawide-angle lens for shooting cityscapes, landscapes, and fine arts.

* Angle of view of 75 mm focal length that is popular in 4x5 format is equivalent to that of a lens with a focal length of 21 mm in FX/35mm format.
** The lineup includes four lenses: PC NIKKOR 19mm f/4E ED, PC-E NIKKOR 24mm f/3.5D ED, PC-E Micro NIKKOR 45mm f/2.8D ED, and PC-E Micro NIKKOR 85mm f/2.8D.

OUTSTANDING OPTICAL PERFORMANCE DELIVERING SUPERIOR RESOLUTION EVEN AT THE PERIPHERY AND MINIMIZED GHOST AND FLARE WITH NANO CRYSTAL COAT

Superb resolution is retained even in the peripheral areas of the frame, which is a great advantage for the ultrawide angle of view provided by the 19 mm focal length in delivering high-definition rendering. The employment of three ED glass elements effectively reduces chromatic aberration while two aspherical lens elements minimize various types of aberrations such as distortion that is likely to occur with wide-angle lenses in particular, and spherical aberration. In addition, Nano Crystal Coat with its high antireflection properties dramatically minimizes ghost and flare effects even when light enters the lens diagonally, producing clear images reliably. These latest design technologies achieve optical performance that can maximize the potential of high-pixel-count D-SLR camera bodies.

“PC ROTATION” MECHANISM ENABLING SHOOTING THAT CAN REFLECT A PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER’S INTENTIONS PRECISELY

Besides the conventional “Rotation” mechanism, a “PC Rotation” mechanism is newly employed for the first time on PC NIKKOR lenses. With this mechanism, the direction of tilt operation can be made parallel or perpendicular to shift according to diverse shooting situations and the intentions of professional photographers of architecture and other fields. The tilt mechanism can be rotated up to 90° with a stop at 45°.

SHIFT MECHANISM THAT ELIMINATES THE NEED FOR LOCK OPERATION ACHIEVES IMPROVED OPERABILITY OF PERSPECTIVE CONTROL

The mechanical structure incorporated in the shift mechanism of the PC NIKKOR 19mm f/4E ED, that does not require lock operation to tighten the shift lock release knob for fixing the lens’ shift position, ensures smooth shift operation for efficient shooting while controlling perspectives.

FLUORINE COAT IS APPLIED TO THE EXTREME FRONT LENS SURFACE FOR EASY MAINTENANCE

Nikon’s original fluorine coat effectively repels dust, water droplets, grease or dirt for easy removal even if they adhere to the lens surface. Due to its highly peel-resistant performance, it endures a higher frequency of lens surface wiping and provides longer-duration staying power. Its antireflective effect also contributes to the capture of clear images.

 

CAMERA COMPATIBILITY

INCOMPATIBLE CAMERAS

As the PC NIKKOR 19mm f/4E ED incorporates an electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism, the following cameras are incompatible: D2 series, D1 series, D200, D100, D90, D80, D70 series, D3000, D60, D50, D40 series, and film cameras.

PERSPECTIVE CONTROL

With the D5, D4 series, D3 series, D810 series, D500 and Df, all functions of the PC NIKKOR 19mm f/4E ED can be utilized without any restriction. With other cameras, some combinations of shift and rotation may not be available due to the lens contacting the camera body.
