Nikon 45PC-E Micro
This was a very expensive day for me! I had a whole day of shooting with the new Nikon 45PC-E micro, one very sweet lens! Just like the 24PC-E, the 45PC-E is standard lens that you have to manually focus. When the aperture ring is in the L position, you select your aperture via the sub-command dial on the body. So standard shooting is pretty much like usual.
Shift the lens and you can keep parellel lines straight. All of these images were taken at Norris Geyser Basin shooting just the 45PC-E. I really thought before I had the lens that 45mm a real funky focal length. That’s before I shot with it and instantly I remembered enjoying shooting with the 45GN so long ago. It is a cool focal length.
