    Cons: The front element of this lens is vulnerable to weather and flying debris. It\'s a heavy lens, and a very expensive one. A big learning curve if you have not used perspective-tilt/shift lenses before.

    Pros: Very sharp. Very wide field of view. Tilt and shift may occur on the same or different axis. Very well constructed. Excellent for architectural wide angle interior or exterior photography and/or landscapes and stitching panoramas.

    Summary: Not a lens for people with no experience with a tilt shift lens. If you\'re new to tilt shift, get the MUCH less expensive Samyang 24mm t/s to try first, or rent it if possible. Then if you like the capabilities, and you need a wider view, step up to the Nikon 19mm PCE lens. I sold my Nikon 28mm PC and 24mm Tilt Shift PCE to buy this lens, and I\'m very glad I did. Much sharper, much wider, and more flexible in its capabilities. Too wide you say? With my D850, I can crop in and lose very little image quality.
