    Didn't find the guide as useful as I had thought. But thanks for the heads up.

    There are other benefits of TS-E lenses, not just the novelty miniturisation effect of the tilt on the focal plane.
    Shifting is great to correct perspective of buildings etc.

    I dont use mine too technically for most part either.
    I just like to play with bokeh :)
    @ 24mm you cannot get this sort of separation with even a 24/1.4.

    Bingo.

    I have thought the same (prob 24mm) but mainly for time-lapse as that's my main interest however as I also have an interest in decent photos from holidays, this lens would also be used how it was originally intended. Nothing worse than getting the same photo from the front of a [insert favourite church / tower / feature] and getting the same photo with converging lines as every other tourist you're rubbing shoulders with.

    take nekkid photos with it~

    I like TSE,
    Whenever I look up at a building at any of my other lenses,
    It looks wrong
