I have that lens too and the DOF of a 24mm doesn't really come into play at distances greater than 5 feet to make the 90 degree changeover since it only amounts so maybe 1 degree of tilt at most. Maybe around "macro land" it might though, but I haven't gone there yet with that lens to worry about it so I've left it alone.

Same here. I almost never use tilt on the 24. The 45 some, and 85 a lot, but rarely on the 24.

Just curious (OP) what are you shooting that needs both tilt AND shift with such a short lens?

You will find some image examples in this article that illustrate a need for tilt in a 24mm tilt-shift lens.
