But shift? Is it necessary these days with PP easily available, given the cost premium?

Well but the reverse is true ! If you need tilt then it is easy to add Gaussian blurr afterward. No data loss other than the ones you want to blurr. Plus it is easy to find tilt adapters around.

When shooting architecture, if you correct perspective and straighten verticals in post, you loose a lot of data : 1) you have to crop and often a lot; 2) the remaining daa in the corners are squeezed and the sharpness suffers all the more that in mft corners are often much worse than the center to Elgin with. All that, when architecture photography require sharpness from center to corners. There are no legacy lenses short enough to put on a shift adapter for architecture, save for some huge and rare ones (Nikon had a 13mm, i believe) plus wide angle lenses cause problems in the corners when you try to adapt them. One shouldn't go under 35mm or perhaps 28mm. This is not enough for architecture. So yes, architecture shooters and travel photographers need a shift WA lens.
