I've been known to do this - take photos at 17mm level, then crop
bottom and sides. It works, but I'm not convinced it is identical to
a TS lens.

Maybe. The only difference would be that the TS-E lens has a much bigger image circle so the correction needed to get the light rays to converge within it would be less than a lens that has to fit them within a normal image circle. I guess, in theory, that should mean a better image.

However, if you shift the 24TS-E fully you end up with quite a bit of blurring unless you stop down to f8 or more. The Nikon seems to be sharp even wide open.

Thanks for your comments.
