    It keeps on crossing my field of vision, and interests me as a shift lens could offer up some new possibilities, architecturally speaking. It allows for "full function shift of 10mm in each direction and 360 degree rotation, allowing shifting in all directions".

    I really would like a tilt-shift lens adapter, but that isn't happening yet from what I understand.

    Wow... so that can turn any FD glass into shift lens? :eek:

    Well, Fotodiox says it can. I am looking for someone with experience to tell it like it is.

    There is someone in Toronto selling theirs.. I may plumb them for some advice.

    Cool idea to build a cheap tilt-shift lens! I can see a weekend project coming up ...

    Definitely interested in the subject - found two links of interest, including a tilt/shift specifically designed for the m43 format : here, here and here

    Thanks Gwendal.... we're getting there. I wrote the Germans for more information following your post.

    Tilt/Shft lenses cost dearly, and are limited to a singular FL. Can you imagine taking your entire Canon, Konica or Contax collection and mounting them all to a single T&S Adapter? Amazing, seeing as we need 35mm FL or less to make this work for decent urban architectural photography where control of receding vertical lines is important. Most existing T&S lenses are 35mm and up, not down, for the full frame market.

    I'll be interested to hear the results ! As Stephen Geis put it "weekend project" will go first, but I just love the "false miniature" look. Also stumbled upon this :turning my EP1 into a machine to make 3D images is an interesting idea. Especially if their gizmo also works for movies !
