These new lenses promise to bring the famed Nikon lens line up to date and leave room for the future.
Quite honestly, there has been one lens in the Canon line that we love to death, because of what it can do. The 24 mm tilt/shift lens gives us perspective control like nothing else.
Now if you’ve ever shot with a view camera, you already understand whit tha can mean in a hand held DSLR.
There is something called the Scheimpflug Rule (i guess it’s not a law yet) which allows you to change the plane of the film or sensor to shift your subject plane.
OK I don’t want to lose you. It’s a unique, yet versatile beautiful piece of glass and lens engineering.
Now Nikon has introduced an updated version and I can stay in the same camera line. Big news.
Plus in the zoom lens world, 2 new lenses have been added with VRII, giving you up to 4 MORE slower shutter speeds to internally controlled vibration. Cool.
If Nikon decides to add vibration reduction to every zoom lens, you’ve got some pretty strong arguments to get in line with that brand.
Geotagging is up next.
