patrickjchase: This looks like a very nice T-S lens, probably a bit better on balance than the Canon 17/4 (which I own).

I don't think this gallery shows the lens to best effect, though. Some of the shifted images are over-corrected such that the verticals diverge. There are also a number where tilt wasn't very well optimized, such as near-far compositions with either the foreground or background defocussed (and not in an intentional/artistic way). Perhaps more tripod use and LF/technical camera experience may be in order to show this lens in the best light?

One other remark: Wide-angle T-S lenses are typically used stopped down a bit, so I'm not convinced that the current trend towards super-expensive, hyper-optimized T-S lenses is necessarily beneficial.

The other option is to hand-hold exclusively, and stitch together 2-3 images for every composition. Works for me at least... (And has for the last 8 years)

For those curious about applications of this technique towards architecture. ~80% of my work has utilized this technique. Also, FWIW, almost all are hand-held. So don't let any apprehensions of IQ and alignment get in the way of working this way.
