Brings view camera versatility to the 35mm format

The image circle of this lens is wider than regular 35mm wideangle lenses providing a covering angle of 78°; thus image quality is insured even when the lens is shifted.

Ideally suited for architectural and commercial photography, this late version of the original PC-NIKKOR 35mm f/2.8 lens has had all aberrations corrected, especially coma and curvature of field, so that image quality is truly outstanding.

Description

Complete with maker’s box.

Brings view camera versatility to the 35mm format

The PC-Nikkor 35mm f/2.8 is a retrofocus-type perspective control (PC) lens with an optical construction of 7 elements in 7 groups. The image circle of this lens is wider than regular 35mm wideangle lenses providing a covering angle of 78°; thus image quality is insured even when the lens is shifted. The lens barrel can be shifted up to 11 mm off-axis and rotated 360° with click-stops every 30° for complete image control. The PC-Nikkor is ideally suited for architectural and commercial photography,
enabling the photographer to properly frame the subject without tilting or angling the camera- and the photographer has the added convenience of thru-the-lens viewing and metering for greater ease of operation. It is also possible to take panoramic shots.
If used with a Nikon camera having interchangeable focusing screens, the Type E or E2 with its etched horizontal and vertical lines is recommended. All aberrations have been corrected, especially coma and curvature of field, so that image quality is truly outstanding.

Please note that the following important points when you see our grading description. When applied to lenses it means that the optics are in perfect condition. What we are describing is the cosmetic condition of the lens barrel. When it applies to cameras, motor drives, speedlights etc. the understanding is that the item is in perfect working order and the description would mean the exterior appearance. In other words we are judging cosmetic appearance.
