Wow! I am so so impressed with this. Truth be told I bought this just for the wicked awesome full circle flare you can achieve with the 24mm tilt shift. I was nervous about buying this because in the past I've bought cheaper lenses (cough, cough Sigma....) and they were SO NOT SHARP.
I prefer to compose and shoot as near to the final image as possible, in camera, rather than relying on the variables of software fixes. Fixes that can produce different from expected results.
This lens is both useful and great for creativity. To line up the shift rail with the object to be photographed (eg. tall buildings), you press a tiny latch (which may be a little too small and too sticky) and simultaneously twist the lens.
Well... I've never had or even tried a tilt/shift lens. I am delighted with this product. Once I watched enough You-tube videos to understand how to use it correctly, I fell in love with it. The quality is fine, the features are easy to use and it works well.
Need to practice a bit to get the hang of it, and using it frequently would be helpful to remember the subtle methods of focus and adjustment. Fun to use Great extra lens to have in your bag Instructions are a little vague
I've used this lens for well over a year now and I find it to be a very reliable and essential part of my kit. Stopped down it is as sharp as the Nikon version, at F3.5 it is not but who really uses these lenses wide open?
Didn't like the small plastic knobs, afraid they might break. Sent it back. Other than that it works great.
The first images taken seem a bit soft. I've only taken a few test shots at F7.1-F11. I will have a chance to check out more throughly this weekend. First impression is I am not completely sure I will keep it. I have had Nikon's 24mm PC and loved it.
As an industrial photographer, this system really pays off in the combined tilt and shift effect in creating painless panoramas in challenging conditions. Imagine taking a tack-sharp image of a two-foot long microcircuit board so tight you can't even look through the viewfinder.
This is my first Tilt/Shift lens. Lots of learning still to do. You must pay a LOT of attention to focus. E.g. when you tilt, the focus plane also moves. It is very old-fashioned manual. No auto ANYTHING, except for exposure.
