I love the TS-E 17mm.   The current 90mm TS-E has been around for more than 20 years, and lacks the optical quality and independent rotation of Tilt and Shift.   Have rented it, but not in love.     

Should I buy the current TS-E 90mm, or wait and pray (and rent) until a new one is released?

Schneider makes a 2.8/50 PC if that's the length for you.  It is a bit spendy though.

The 90mm TS-E is noted for high optical quality, mine was wonderful.  Every 2years or so, we see a rumor about a replacement, but so far, it hasn't happened.

I am doing more and more work that I would rather use the 90TS-E for, but I am going to stick with my 100 L Macro until it gets the MkII rework, not fussed abut the IQ as the current isn't far off, much more concerned about the shift and tilt rotations, I will not buy one until I can control those like the 17 and 24 MkII.
