I have one:  I use it with a Nikon 20mm f3.5 and a Tamron 17mm f3.5.  Both give excellent results.  The Tamron is much wider and for architecture it is much more useful. Here are some examples.

Shifted Tamron 17mm

Same lens unshifted

Tamron 17mm shifted to remove distortion

Same lens shifted to add distortion

The Tamron has excellent edge sharpness and makes it very useful.  This lens doesn't quite approache the sharpness of  a Canon 24mm TS-E, but at less than 1/4 the price it is darn good. The distortion of the Tamron is also a little higher than the Canon, but I found the overall experience to be fun and useful...with it's limitations.  I will post some examples of Tilting in a separate post.
