    Another 43xl IQ180 combo

    Well, the IQ180 finally arrived! I did a quick test shifting with my 43xl. As Wayne Fox points out, every individual SK/IQ180/shift combo seems to be different, so here is another data point. Mine turns out to be about as expected. Looks like I can shift about 10mm L/R in landscape format. Didn't try portrait yet. First image is 10mm, second is 18mm. Color is different because the light changed and I didn't try to balance them.

    What is interesting is there is a definite image circle limit in these photos. Just beyond the post the brightness gets goofy. Shows in the 18mm, not in the 10mm. Both images at f/11, LCC calculated using Technical Wide Angle then applied. These are with an Alpa STC.

    Confirms what I found Dave, that around 17mm shift is the max usable IC for the 43.
