    Shift and tilt/shift adapters experiences ?

    I can't seem to find reviews or opinions for those on the net, maybe someone here could share his/her experience with shift adapters (kipon, etc) for the Fuji X mount ?
    Thanks.

    I have the Kipon tilt adaptor (not the newer very expensive tilt-shift adaptor). It is almost impossible to adjust the tilt accurately. The mechanism to tighten the lens in its place is awkward, the whole tilt assembly doesn't move smoothly. It is impossible to limit the move along a single axis. If you want to use it like a lensbaby, it is okay, I suppose, but that's about it.

    The newer tilt-shift adaptor looks better but I have no experience with it.

    Thanks Martin. I'm essentially interested in the shift function, an accurate tilt would be a useful bonus though.
