In addition to product photography, I think the 135mm FL would be used more for creative purposes, particularly headshots and other "toy camera" effect type effects where tilt would be the primary move used, vs. shift to correct perspective.  The TS-E90 is used by a lot of celebrity portrait pros.

Mr. Surapon (the man who wears many cameras :-))

I'm glad you enjoyed the link - Canon USA has a number of these "FOCUS ON" articles for several of their lenses and most of them are quite interesting.  There isn't a way to show just those, but this is pretty close:

Look for FOCUS ON: in the results and there are several pages, so go through them to the find the articles.

<p>We also understand that Canon is redesigning the shift mechanism on the new tilt-shift lenses and that they won’t share the same design... I would gladly welcome a more reliable design to the shift unit, and hopefully Canon can make the new lenses a bit less prone to broken knobs and other issues that I have seen.</p>

Problem with the shift mechanism on the TSE-17? News to me.

If they're redesigning ONLY the shift mechanism, perhaps they're looking at the post-style shift like the PC-Super-Angulon and older shift lenses. The new Schneider PC-TS lenses use barrel rings to adjust both tilt and shift independently. Very cool, indeed.

I will say the post-style shift is really a joy to use. I have the 75mm shift lens for the Mamiya RZ, and I previously owned the TS-E 24L II. Both are extraordinary. I do find the TS-E knobs a bit tedious now that I've experienced a post mechanism. Big fan, though the Mamiya post lacks a way to lock things down.
