If you want to see an article that Nikon World magazine has on this lens go to this month’s issue:
In it I discuss the reasons for me using the lens and the features that no other lens can achieve. The 24 tilt shift is extremely sharp and delivers an image that is worthy of the hefty price that accompanies it.
Looking at the 24mm PC-E. Came across your note on the Photography Life Lens Database, referring to “an article that Nikon World magazine has on this lens in this month’s issue”, but no matter what I do, I can’t trace that issue of the magazine on the web – not on Nikon USA, and not on Google either.
Tried to email Nikon USA, but their website doesn’t work and it seems to be impossible to do that.
Have you any idea how I can access a copy to download the article?
It appears that this particular article has expired. Nikon is currently asking me to review their new 19mm PC-E f/4 lens. If you want a link when it comes out contact me through www.grahamhobart.com. I can probably get my hands on a pdf version of the article which mentions the 24mm PC-E and send that to you once I have your contact info.
