    I've had a Nikon tilt adapter for some time, but I hadn't tried the tilt function until recently. A fun option (I'm using it with a 3rd party 28/2.8 for a long-normal AoV).

    It looks like at full tilt (8mm I believe), you can get a very narrow depth of field, even at fairly middling apertures. I'd be curious if anybody has any tips regarding setting up the plane of focus.

    Samples below (28mm f/4.0, full tilt):

    E-PM1    ---       f/1.0    1/3200s    ISO 200

    E-PM1    ---       f/1.0    1/4000s    ISO 200

    E-PM1    ---       f/1.0    1/2000s    ISO 200

    E-PM1    ---       f/1.0    1/2500s    ISO 200

    E-PM1    ---       f/1.0    1/3200s    ISO 200
