Introduction: Well, I have been usinng this lens for more than 2 years. It is surely not a lens which can be extensively used. Probably I shoot maybe 10% of my photos with Samyang T-S 24mm but I really enjoy it while using its tilt-shift features. In principle, I do not like modifying photos in post-processing in order to make them as if they had been shot with a tilt-shift lens. For this reason, I prefer to use a real tilt-shift lens instead.

Yesterday i bought Samyang 24mm Tilt-Shift F3.5 lens. It's only option of wide-angle TS lens for Minolta|Sony A Mount (except cosmic-pricey 28mm SK). Immediately i've discovered that i cannot use shift-RISE function more than 9.5mm (of total 12mm) because lens base barrel touching a pentaprism housing of my Sony Alpha a900 (the same will be at least with a700 and 850). Do they ever ever test this lens on this cameras? Because User Manual shows only operation with oldish aps-c alpha 350. Secon ...View review in forums Leave a comment on this review
