    Rokinon 24mm 3.5 tilt shift lens! I haven't tried it out yet, just woke up and it was waiting for me, so I think I'll have to do that today. Ever since I got into photography almost a year ago, I've been wanting to get into tilt shift. So far I've only been able to use those crappy adapters that fall apart or become loose after a couple of uses. Build quality always sucked, and the choice of lenses was kind of small. I wasn't really looking forward to spending a couple thousand dollars and switching over to Nikon to get it done right (although I will eventually, gotta have that DOF), but then I stumbled upon this! I am very pleased Rokinon has made one with a 4/3s mount, which makes it easy to attach to my MFT cameras and I don't have to worry about the mount falling apart, and I don't have to deal with strange 3rd-world-country glass that could have come from a coke-bottle. I've heard the Rokinon isn't that sharp compared to the Nikon 24mm T/S, but I'll have to pixel peep later and I'll post some results. In any case, this is built like a tank and I can't wait to use it.

    Amazing. Those things always look so wrong to my eyes. I'd love to try one sometime.

    Why did you buy a broken lens...

    Seriously, my understanding was that, the fact that these lens are wide angles was the benefice and contribute to the effect that they produce.
    I really believed that this effect would be lost with m4/3..

    Looking froward seeing your result...

    I have been interested in this lens since it was announced but I would get one for my Nikon rather than m4/3. On m4/3 it is a standard focal length but even on APS/DX it is a wide, far more useful to me for landscape and architecture. Plus it could always be adapted to m4/3 from Nikon F mount. However I am very interested to read what you think of this lens.
