... and soon available. That's the (remaining) good thing: they announce only when they are able to deliver. The 19 mm PC is cool, but all people afraid of "bulbous elements" will shiver again.  ^_^

Nikon finally fixed the big issue the AF-S 70-200mm f2.8 VR II had: the widening of FOV towards MFD. Nice.

With fluorite and electronic aperture they went full on Canon  Wink

BC.  This FL change at close distances has plagued all but the Canon 70-200mm zooms, where do you glean that Nikon had corrected this effect on their new 70-200? I couldn't see reference to it.

Big Grin a room with no straight vertical walls and a very dark room where you can't see vignetting... but nice pictures anyway. Interesting is, that tilt and shift can be done in different orientations - this is unique in Nikon's PC lens range.

And price-wise too! Smile

Personally, I'm glad to see the customisable buttons on the barrel back again.

All f/2.8 zooms, that is. The f/4 zooms (both Nikon and Canon, not sure about the Tokina) don't suffer from this. But also curious, yes... haven't seen it mentioned anywhere... BC?

Well, yes, but not a unique feature in the market. You could buy 3rd party lenses that featured this for ages already - think of the Hartblei Super-Rotators for example, also the (insanely huge and expensive) Schneider Kreuznach T/S lenses can adjust tilt and shift directions independently. Same applies to the (very affordable in comparison) Samyang 24mm TS.

In Nikkor land, you either surrendered being stuck to one direction (and had it changed at a Nikon service point if necessary) or were bold enough to change it yourself... all it needs to do this on the PC-E 24 is a tiny screw driver (and nerves made of steel if you had to switch on site...). I guess, quite a few Nikon shooters rather went for the Samyang instead.
