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 optimize sharpness and contrast, while the fluorine coat ensures easy maintenance and lens durability.

A versatile angle of view

With a 19mm1 focal length now among the PC NIKKOR series lenses2, 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 PC lens also lets you quickly adjust the optical axis of the lens – independent of 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 peripheral 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, achieving 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 Rotation mechanism that can be accurately adjusted based on your needs and intentions. With this mechanism, the direction of tilt operation can be made parallel or perpendicular to shift, suiting a wide range of shooting situations. The tilt relative to shift can be rotated up to 90° with a stop at 45°.

Precise control in any shooting situation

Improved operability with tilting and shifting

Extend your photographic creativity with its tilt and shift mechanisms that accurately control perspective. The PC NIKKOR 19mm f/4E ED provides the maximum shift amount of 12 mm and the maximum tilt amount of 7.5°. For smooth shift operation during shooting while controlling perspectives, a mechanical structure eliminates the need for a locking operation with the shift lock release knob for fixing the lens’ shift position.

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 provides extra durability, while the anti-reflective effect ensures image clarity so your creative vision can be captured wherever assignments take you.
