I have a Nikon D5100 that I have really learned a lot with in the last year and a bit and have really gotten into landscape photography. I have successfully sold a few photos to a stock agency as well. I am fascinated by the idea of being able to manipulate the horizon in my photos as well as having both the foreground and the background in focus.

Before I go spend $2K on this lense I want to know if it will meter through my camera and if it is compatible with the D5100 in general. I know it won't autofocus which doesn't bother me, but I want to know what else it won't do with my camera.

i dont know anything about if the d5100 will meter.  i dont see why it wouldnt.  But you might want to see how the upcoming samyang 24mm 3.5 tilt shift turns out.  its likely to be less than half the price of the nikon.  im looking forward to it in march.  the few samples out look promising.
