    Nikon only make that one lens with tilt and shift capabilities - the 85 mm PC-Micro-Nikkor. The other PC Nikkors only have shift, no tilt. There is also the Schneider 28 mm PC Super Angulon that can be fitted with a Nikon mount. I have one of those - they are very good lenses, but they only have shift.

    Other solutions are possible, depending on how badly you want tilt, how wide a lens you require, whether you only want macro, and what quality of lens you need.

    Best,
    Helen

    Also, Nikkor made a 105mm lens that was made to mount on a bellows. It had no helix, just the mount and barrel. I think it was the PB-4 bellows that would shift and tilt, no swing. Many tinkerers have adapted the Canon 35 TS to Nikon mount or made tilt/shift bellows mounts for Nikon F mounts.

    It would be cheaper to just get a 4X5. ;)

    A digital back and adapter might take the total a little over. :lol: And a 4X5 has a little trouble fitting in places that a 35 body can go.

    Some Russian company is making these for use with various bodies...... prices seemed tolerable but quality?

    You see them on eBay periodically

    They make them for the Nikon cameras.

    I have the 85mm PC T/S Nikkor and it is an excellent lens, expensive though.

    And stay strictly away from the 4x5's bigger bellows. ;)
