You don't need TS lenses for real estate shoots. Software make it much faster, easier, and nobody will notice or care. Here's a great video on the topic:

I looked into the software option before I bought the 17, but I watched the video anyway.

It definitely takes less time to shift the lens than to do all of that.

The speaker also said that there would be distortion and artifact problems if he had tilted his lens more than he did.

As a bonus, you get a really good piece of glass to go with that TS-E mechanism.

A better compromise, if you were hell bent on avoiding the shift would be to go with a wider lens, like a 12 or an 11, and crop.   I’d rather lose a few pixels than deal with the extra processing.
