damn I was really hoping for a zeiss 21mm TSE
not sure why they dont make a tilt shift but i bet they would do a seriously good job of one
That would be an interesting lens. Zeiss microcontrast with the Canon TSE 24 II's functionality. Landscape photog's dream!!!
The issue I see is the vast majority of Zeiss' "affordable" (Under or around 2K?) lenses are just re-issues of 20+ year-old designs with modern mounts and some have auto aperture. The Hollywood 28/2, the 100 Makro, the 35/1.4, the 21/2.8 all come to mind.
To make a TS lens you need a much larger image circle than a normal full-frame lens. The Zeiss 21 is a very complicated lens already and I do not think it could be scaled up without a complete re-design. Since a 50-55mm f1.4 is one of the simplest lenses to design, and the fact that they are asking 3,000 euros for their new version of a lens with that simplicity, I can imagine a 21mm TS would be in the $8-10,000 range. Perhaps they could re-use one of their medium format lenses and add a tilt/shift base? (though I don't know if 21mm is even possible on a med format system)
