85mm pc-e for Macro Product Photography?
Jul 28, 2012

Hi,

In preparation of receiving my d800e which will be used to photograph jewelry, spefically rings, I'm considering purchasing an 85mm pc-e lens. What I'm worried about is the limitation of only an 8 degree plane correction on this lens and how that would efect it's intended purpoe. Maybe this lens is more suitable for landscape work rather than macro product photography? I'd love to hear from product photographers and to hear what theyre using. I've been also looking into adapters that allow you to tilt and shift such as ones from zoerk and mirex. I've also read about hooking up bellows to the camera and using it that way. Anyway, any help or advice would be appreciated.
