At the DV workshop, using the tech cameras was great. That said, even in the MFDB world, moving from a P30+ to an IQ160 + tech cam is a big lump sum ...
As I was talking with all the very clever tech people there, I got the impression that the P30+ would support the level of shift that the 50 shift has, and do this without all the horrible things that would happen with a P30+ on a tech camera.
So, the question is ... will the 50 shift allow me to get the foreground in focus while at the same time getting as much of the background in focus as possible.
Asked another way, will the 50 shift let me do the racetrack shot without focus stacking?
