The PC-Nikkor 35mm f/3.5 is an exceptional wide-angle perspective control lens. Introduced in 1962, this lens has been considered an optical breakthrough due to its shift capabilities. It provides up to 11mm off-center shift for perspective control, shift adjustments via milled knob at side of lens and shift scales provided with graduations at 1mm intervals. The optics rotate 360°for perspective control adjustments in any direction.
This perspective control (PC) lens employs Nikon Integrated Coating (NIC) which further enhances performance by increasing image contrast, while reducing flare and ghosting for outstanding color reproduction. The lens also features close range correction system to maintain exceptional image quality over the entire focusing range when used at its respective minimum focusing range. Originally intended for architectural photography, the 35mm PC lens is suitable for a variety of photographic applications when the shift feature is not being used.
