Nikon technology for superb performance

Like all NIKKOR lenses, the PC-E Micro NIKKOR 85mm f/2.8D produces truly superior images. Nikon's Nano Crystal Coat (N) virtually eliminates ghosting and flare, and Nikon’s exclusive Close-Range Correction (CRC) system enhances performance at close distances. And since it’s a Nikon, you can expect the highest standard of lens design and durability for years of consistent performance.

Nano Crystal Coat

An anti-reflective coating developed by Nikon that virtually eliminates internal lens element reflections across a wide range of wavelengths. Nano Crystal Coat solves ghost effects caused by red light and effectively reduces ghost and flare caused by light entering the lens diagonally.

CRC (Close Range Correction) System

The Close-Range Correction (CRC) system is one of Nikon's most important focusing innovations, for it provides superior picture quality at close focusing distances and increases the focusing range. With CRC, the lens elements are configured in a "floating element" design wherein each lens group moves independently to achieve focusing. This ensures superior lens performance even when shooting at close distances. The CRC system is used in fisheye, wide-angle, micro and selected medium telephoto NIKKOR lenses.

I have Canon and Nikon equipment and use the Canon 24mmTS-E lens a lot so I bought the Nikon tilt and shift to use along side the Canon. Both are brilliant but I use the Nikon more due to it's flexible nature, that is, it is not just a landscape/architecture lens but can be used for a multitude of...


I first used this lens on a job for a technology client shooting macro shots of very small electronic components. The ability to increase depth-of-field was wonderful and resulted in macro shots on a D800 which were able to be viewed at very large scale pin-sharp.


I've been using this lens quite a bit recently. I find the tilt and shift useful aids to both composition and depth of field control. This lens is fixed focal length and manual focus and using it favours a slower more calculating approach to photography.


A great lens which had more uses than you may expect.If you need F/40+ outside ... done If you're trying to get something on the table pin sharp when it's angled @ 45deg + your light is f/5.6 ... done Want to try some different looks to portrait images ...


"With this tilt-shift lens you can make miniture time lapse, or pictures. The 9 bladed design creates stunning bokeh."


This is a great lens and perfect for still life and product photography. It's nice and sharp when it needs to be, but has nice bokeh when using larger apertures. I use it often even when not using the tilt/shift function as I find it to be useful as a normal lens too.

B&H Photo

My main purpose for this lens is to manage depth of field with macro photography and other nature / portrait image capture. The lens is capable of creative freedom not possible with other medium format telephotos. A great lens for someone that has grown beyond standard prime lenses.

Bought this in 2009 for tricky product macros. It is not the E version but then that is something that I don't need and I'm glad I have the can't go wrong version. The only downside in handling is that you can't shift and tilt in the same axis, unless you change that.


Most people are probably buying the newer E version of this lens, but since there are still some showing up used, I'll add my review. The E version is said to be a little better but this is a hard act to follow, as the older model is bitingly sharp and well behaved.

B&H Photo

My interest in photography started in the 1960 as a serious amateur, with both 35mm film and 4x5 view cameras. I was fascinated by both photographing small animals and architecture, sort of the opposite poles of the art. I ended up using mostly a Leica and then NIkon F.
