Recently been looking and dreaming of owning a Nikon Tilt Shift lenses:twisted:. In doing a bit of reading I came across this little gem(not sure if this has already been canvessed but apologies in advance if it has):-

Not sure how long before we see something like this in the dslr arena but it certainly whets the apetite and interest :) Think of the flexibility it would provide. :wink:
cheers and happy dreams for all you titl shift enthusiasts :twisted:

I've got one of those for my Sony NEX-5. It's pretty cool, although I must admit I haven't been using it often enough.

Note that it's only a tilt transformer though, it's not capable of shift.

As your link suggests, it would take a medium format lens for this to work on a Nikon. I have played with one at work for the Micro Four Thirds system. If you lust after one of these...have a look at the Lensbaby Composer Pro + Sweet 35 combo

I am hoping that i get the chance to play with one, but with me changing jobs in a few weeks I will probably miss out on that opportunity
