The Nikon PC-E Nikkor 24mm f/3.5D ED Lens is a tilt-shift, wide-angle prime lens that provides the equivalent of the corresponding view camera front movements on Nikon F-mount camera bodies. Its ultra-wide perspective control features tilt, shift and rotation capability, well-suited for architectural and nature photography.[2][3]

The lens is designed for Nikon's full frame (FX) cameras, such as the Nikon D700, Nikon D800, Nikon D600, Nikon D3, and Nikon D4, for which it provides an 84° angle of view. It can be used with Nikon DX format cameras with the angle of view reduced to 61° (equivalent to a 36mm lens). The lens allows an 8.5° tilt with respect to the film or sensor plane and 11mm shift with respect to the center of the image area. Each movement can be rotated ±90° about the lens axis.[4]

This lens features automatic aperture control. When it is mounted on a compatible Nikon camera, the user can use all exposure modes to take photographs without operating the aperture stop-down button. Previous Nikkor PC lenses cannot do this.[5][6]
