Re: There's no "pretty wide" TS lens for µ4/3

Not really wide?  17mm is very wide for a FF UWA lens, and for a FF TS lens, it is extremely wide.  These type of lenses provide a much bigger image circle when shifted.  So a 17mm must be qbout 12mm (guessing here) and for FF, that is beyond extreme.

The key word here is "full frame." If you look at the subject of my post, it says "There's no "pretty wide" TS lens for µ4/3."

A 17mm lens, as you very well know, will only give a 35mm equivalent field of view on a micro 4/3 camera. No matter how much you can shift it, you can only photograph 65 degrees diagonal angle, which may be wide for street shooting, but in an apartment it quite narrow. If you look at the real estate images, they typically use a much wider field of view, especially residential real estate.
