New bigger knobs on my 45 PC-E
1

I recently acquired a 45 PC-E.  I had it sent to Nikon to have the tilt and shift on the same axis.  I read on one of the boards that Nikon Service would replaced the small knobs with bigger ones.  Marvin, at Fort Worth Camera, called and requested the upgrade.  They told him they didn't replace the knobs.  So, I thought that was that.....Well, I just picked it up and through the plastic the first thing I noticed were the huge knobs!

They didn't replace the knobs, they put caps on them!  They can be taken off easily, and used on my 24 PC-E when needed.  The knob caps can't be expensive to make, but they make the adjustments easier.

The D3 and D3x were designed to be used with these lenses.  The bigger knob-caps might not work on other cameras
