While the 4000€ price tag of the 19mm TS nikkor just isn't justifieable for an everyday shooter, at a tenth of that price i've settled for the PC-Nikkor 28mm 1:3.5 .Though both lenses aren't really comparable, the 28 can still be fun to use. Here i've made a simple panorama using the shift function, this resulted in a nice distortion free 55,5 megapixel image (made with the D800)
The panorama, made from three images left and right the lens was shifted to its outer limit.To get good corner to corner sharpness f16 was used at a 2 meter hyperfocal distance seting.
Here's what the single central image looks like.
luggage weight issues prevent me from using this lens on trips outside of Europe, so next month when i'll be travvelling from the Brasil border to the outer extreme of Argentina (Uchaïa) i will have to settle for some lighter gear
