Having used them, I definitely agree with your post.  I have used a Canon and the 24mm TS-E II and there is no doubt that the results are superior.  at least as far as shifting is concerned.  But I would add that lens distortion plays a larger role then the outer edges of the image circle.  The Canon lens is distortion free and for shifting application of architecture it makes all the difference.

But at less than 1/4 the price for the adapter and lens...it works pretty darn good.  Especially if it is your intention to exaggerate artistically rather than to minimize converging lines.  Bottom line if you intend to use this set up professionally for interior architectural work, it will give you limited success depending on the application.  But for artsy work, I would say that it is a winner!
