So I bought a used 5D (thanks for the helpful suggestions) and a 17mm TS-E at the same time. While I would rarely if ever use the TS-E on the 5D, when I do I won't have live view to help me.
Now, those of you who have had dSLRs and tilt-shift lenses before the advent of live view, any advice or tips will be greatly appreciated. Should I, for example, get the grid screen? Any other screen? etc...

There is something unique about the colour from the early canon 1d bodies IMO
I'm hoping Canon replaces their 180mm L Macro with a lighter (and-hopefully-not-more-expensive) 150mm f/2.8 IS Macro... and their 135mm f/2 with a 100mm f/1.4. That would make my year (of the lens).
It is correct that the field of view changes, however the size of an object at the point of focus will be the same at 1:1. It is objects in the background that change. Brian over at The Digital Picture has an exellent example of this in his macro lens review: http://www.the-digital-picture.com/Canon-Lenses/Canon-Macro-Lens.aspx
Scroll down and look at the photos of the purple flower. They are taken at different focal lengths with the same magnification. As you can see the size of the flower is the same, however the background is quite different due to the narrow field of view of the longer focal length lenses.
