That’s cool, but it’s only capable of shift on APSC. And then it is not wide enough.

You can't flatly say it isn't wide enough without knowing what the room is. Some rooms might be too small for your widest lens and need to be stitched.

It's wider than Nikon's 24mm $2,200 lens and Nikon's 19mm lens is $2,900 more for 3.5mm more width.

Although you can flatly say that, price being no object, the Canon lenses deliver better quality and more features for architectural photography. The question is whether the quality is worth the cost.

Also have a look at the Rokinon: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/926394-REG/rokinon_tsl24m_n_24mm_f3_5_tilt_shift.html

I may pick up the Laowa or Rokinon until Nikon moves the T/S lenses to Z-mount. I'm interested to see what they can do with the bigger mount.
