    Hmmmm. I think most if not all current tilt lenses tilt all the elements and groups together so they are in sync with one another on the new focal plane.

    Not sure what this is doing but I don't think it's a traditional tilt lens design.

    The patent pdf mentions autofocus, and that explains the interesting design.

    This looks very extraordinary.

    So far, there isn't any tilt (only) lens that I know of.

    Also, the possibility of AF and tilt mechanism like the Ukrainian tilt adapters is intriguing.

    Would this be a tiltable zoom?

    Another interesting patent is here. Looks to be geared towards DSLR video use:
