New Perspectives and Precision with PC NIKKOR 19mm f/4E ED

A NIKKOR lens that offers superior optical performance and responds precisely to the wide-ranging shooting intent of professional photographers

NEW DELHI, October 19, 2016 – Nikon India, the 100% subsidiary of Nikon Corporation Tokyo, leaders in imaging technology is pleased to announce the PC NIKKOR 19mm f/4E ED as the latest ultra-wide-angle Perspective Control lens to join the range of PC NIKKOR lens range.

The PC NIKKOR series*1 consists of lenses that support a shift function, with which the optical axis is moved parallel to the image plane, and a tilt function, with which the optical axis is tilted in relation to the image plane. These functions allow users to control perspective, correcting the distortion of subjects dependent upon camera angle, and bringing entire scenes and subjects with depth into focus (foreground to background).

Kazuo Ninomiya, Managing Director, Nikon India, “We are delighted to launch PC NIKKOR 19mm f/4E ED, which is built on advanced NIKKOR design technology. This lens is the perfect choice for photographers seeking outstanding optical performance. It is compatible with Nikon FX-format (full - frame) D-SLR cameras and achieves superior resolution throughout the entire frame for detailed image capturing.”

“Nikon’s new Perspective Control lens introduces an ultra-wide-angle focal length which ensures, that it provides measured perspective and defined composition for impeccable architectural photography,” said Sajjan Kumar, Senior Vice President – Corporate Sales & Strategy, Nikon India. He added, “PC NIKKOR 19mm f/4E ED is a perfect example of expertise in lens making which delivers performance and quality. It will boost the skill of photographers and ensure that they get the best of l architectural and interior photography.”

The PC NIKKOR 19mm f/4E ED offers superior optical performance and the widest angle of view in the PC NIKKOR series of lenses. Designed to stimulate a photographer's creativity, the lens supports unique forms of photographic expression with cityscape and landscape photography and the creation of fine art, all while responding precisely to the strict needs of professional architecture and interior photographers.

Compatible with Nikon FX-format DSLR cameras, the new PC NIKKOR lens achieves superior resolution throughout the entire frame for extremely detailed rendering of images captured at its ultra-wide angle all the way to the extreme corners. Adoption of three ED lens elements reduces chromatic aberration, and two aspherical lens elements provide effective compensation for a variety of aberrations, including distortion. In addition, the use of Nano Crystal Coat effectively reduces ghosting and flare, even when light passes through the lens at an angle, for clear, sharp images. The superior optical performance made possible by these technologies and the latest optical design will maximise the power and capabilities of high-pixel-count DSLR cameras.

In addition to the conventional “Rotation” mechanism, a new “PC Rotaation” mechanism, which increases the flexibility of perspective control, has been adopted with the PC NIKKOR 19mm f/4E ED . This new mechanism allows users to freely set the way shift and tilt relate to one another from parallel to perpendicular, responding precisely to a variety of shooting intents. Operation with perspective control has been improved with a shift mechanism that can eliminate the need for lock operation and ensure smooth shift operation. What's more, Nikon's exclusive fluorine coat has been adopted for superior durability and resistance to dust, water, grease, and dirt.

PC NIKKOR 19mm f/4E ED Primary Features

• A shift mechanism that supports smooth perspective control without the need for lock operation
• Adoption of a new “PC Rotation” mechanism that allows users to freely set the direction of shift and tilt operation from parallel to perpendicular to each other
• Superior optical performance that begins with excellent resolution all the way to the edges of the frame, making the most of high-pixel-count DSLR camera capabilities
• Adoption of Nano Crystal Coat, which enables sharp and clear images with which ghost and flare is effectively reduced with superior antireflection characteristics
• Highly durable fluorine coat that effectively repels dust, water, grease, and dirt applied to the outer surface of the lens element at the extreme front of the lens

1 PC NIKKOR series: PC NIKKOR 19mm f/4E ED , PC-E NIKKOR 24mm f/3.5D ED, PC-E Micro NIKKOR 45mm f/2.8D ED, PC-E Micro NIKKOR 85mm f/2.8D

When used with cameras other than the D5, D4 series, D3 series, D810 series, D500, or Df, some combinations of shift and rotation may not be possible due to the fact that the lens comes into contact with the camera body

As this lens is equipped with an electromagnetic aperture, it is not compatible with D2- or D1-series, D200, D100, D90, D80, D70-series, D60, D50, D40-series, or D3000 digital SLR cameras or film SLR cameras or Nikon 1 series cameras
