Hi,

No, I haven't done it.  If I owned a TS lens I would certainly try it.  I think it would work, though it will be subject to the usual crop factor conversion on an APSC sensor.  So, shift will be less effective than on FF.

If anything might interfere with the combo it could possibly be any narrowing of the light path inside the adapter that causes occlusion of the rear element of the lens when it's shifted or tilted to its extremity.  If that's not a problem, I can't see any reason that the combo wouldn't work just as well as on the original camera.

Cheers, Rod
