A review of the Samyang Tilt Shift

Finally good to see one of these in the field (even if it is the Nikon mount)

Hopefully there will be some Canon reviews up soon, but I expect the results will be very similar.

Unfortunately they tested it on the D700 - a very forth-coming sensor.

I'm more concerned about distortion than outright resolution given the insane amount the 14mm had. Thankfully they report 2.5% barrel which is not great, but not too bad either. The Canon mk2 was under 1% barrel as measured by photozone though.

I think it's unreasonable to expect a 14mm to have distortion in line with a 24mm - they are very different lenses. I like my 14mm (though admittedly don't use it often) because it's sharp and the distortion can be pretty well corrected.

However with a tilt shift the distortion is uncorrectable, but i'd mostly want it for landscape use so 2.5% is acceptable if the resolution is there.
