If you are only wanting to use T / S functions for every so often for special projects then you could use software such as DxO ViewPoint 2.

It;s a lot cheaper than a Canon 17 or 24mm. Like with all software manipulation you will loose some pixels doing so, but if you start with a well exposed and sharply focused 24MP or 36MP then you won't notice a lot of difference.

You can never do with software in editing what tilt-shift lens does in camera. It is simply impossible because physics. Not even lytro have managed to do it even when in theory it should be possible for lightfield cameras.

I have both a T/S adapter and DxO Viewpoint 2.

If you work at max resolution, the T/S adapter is definitely the way to go, but DxO VP2 does a very respectable job, within reason. You loose resolution, sure, but because you alter (straighten) perspective, it does not appear to worsen the image, especially if viewed at full image size.
