Re: Tilt and shift lens with adaptor using XP1

You certainly can with the Nikon ones, using any standard Nikon F to Fuji X mount adapter.

I am not so sure for the Canon ones, as you need electronic control of the aperture (I believe these lenses have no aperture ring of their own). Perhaps the Metabones EF-S adapter will do the job.

Such a lens, used on an APS-C sensor, should give you access to the full shift and tilt capabilities without worries for sharpness and vignetting, and with minimal distortion. Of course, there will always be the cropped FOV taking away from the wide angle effect.

I will try to get my hand on a copy of the Samyang 24mm T/S (with Nikon mount) for testing. In light of the hefty weight of such a lens Inplan to use my Novoflex adapter with its optional tripod collar.
