This supposed to be a (half) macro lens, right? So where are the MACRO samples? Insects, spiders, small flowers, or anything small?

I agree, they really didn't showcase a lot of the key situations a lens like this would be useful.  It seems like they really focused on showcasing how a tilt shift can isolate a subject, and a little bit of perspective control for architecture.  Product and macro photography samples would be useful too!

Horrible sample gallery, no interesting macro photos, very boring and uninteresting shots, many of them not sharp (shaky apparently) and nothing actually interesting about the lens capabilities.

I have to agree with this. This pier would have been the ideal showcase of tilt used to make it sharp from front to back. But it has only been used for "see I have a tilt lens and I can use it to make pictures all blurry and crappy".
And the one closeup photo also does not seem to make any use of tilt (and having tilted surfaces in focus is the only reason to use a TS lens instead of a proper macro I can think of).
