    50mm Tilt Shift lens for micro 4/3

    I was wondering if anyone has used one of these lenses. I emailed the company to see if there was any data or comparisons.

    No, I haven't but I will add I find my EF 45/2.8 TS less useful on my m4/3 because of the FOV. Whereas I like it very much on my 5D. Its a bit too long for using it for shifting and for tilting I like using my Lensbaby tilt adapter with a Nikkor 35/2 or 24/2.8 better. Just thought I would add that. Have you considered finding an FD tilt/shift? I think they are 35/2.8 and shouldn't be too much more expensive than this and since you're MF anyhow just a thought. At least you would have some feedback on the lens.

    Mark, thanks for reminding me I need to buy that adaptor from the fellow in Italy

    As a lover of my TS-E 24 and 90mm lenses on 35mm film I feel that at 50mm on a 4/3 (close to the look of a 90) will be most useful tilted and for shift we don't have anything wide enough (that I'm willing to spend the money on).

    I've been urging people to make a tilt shift adaptor ... but to no avail

    12mm lenses to cover enough area (aka 35mm lenses) are either dear or have shi-ite resolution, so I don't really think that shift is so important.

    so I'll get the adaptor so I can use high quality lenses of what ever focal length I prefer

    Please report back on that adapter. I've used my LB tilt adapter with FD lens but have to use Nikon to FD small adapter which means a bit of glass. The results were pretty decent but in the end mostly use my Nikkor 24 and 35.

    Diane thanks for your comments and suggestions. I will have to think through the options or just stick to my other systems if i want to do TS work

    I can't remember who here on the forum has one but he was participating in the "shooting your bokeh" thread this past Fall AIR.

    May be it was me

    The Adrionoli adapter is actually a tilt adapter only. Mine is made for Olympus OM mount and works fine with all my OM mount lenses.

    Yes, Michiel, how could I forget LOL. I've continued to enjoy your images but had forgotten you had the tilt adapter.
