One more at f/8. same thing here, no adjustments zero sharpness added in camera or post. straight out the camera with neutral picture style. beautiful sharpness. i believe i shifted up a little.

But you need to know ahead of time that you're going to need that, and frame loosely to allow for the cropping space needed for the corrections. Plus, you'll have soft corners, not as bad as a de-fish, but definitely soft.I'm not sure about soft corners... My main field is architecture and I made large use of perspective correction without suffering of soft corners. In the full resolution version of Steven Holl building I can't see any soft corner. Obviously we are comparing a prime lens (24 T&S) with a zoom lens (16-35) and this is not a fair competition!
By the way, the only way for not needing any correction, particularly with a lens quite complex to operate mechanically, is to put it on a tripod. Your Chinese temple, for instance, and the bell tower too, beautiful pictures nevertheless, are not perfectly orthogonal and they need all some adjustment...
True. The temple was handheld, however, the Custom House Tower was on a tripod (0.5 s exposure, I think). However, in both cases I was too close, and really needed a 17mm TS-E for those shots - even with max shift, I had to point the camera up a bit to get the full height of the structure in both cases, and that resulted in the perspective distortion.
The post edit T/S effects really look like they were don in post.Obviously, since what I did in this PP what is impossible with a T&S: selecting an arbitrary, poligonal area, just to demonstrate what is possible in PP. Actually I don't like this effect and I never use in my compositions, as, usually, I don't like to aim the attention on a subject other than playing with plain and simple DoF...
and that resulted in the perspective distortion.
Actually this is not a 'distortion', but just 'geometrical perspective'... It appears a 'distortion' in 2D since our eyes+visual cortex do in 3D vision something similar to a PP, and we don't notice the perspective effects in direct perception...

I find this lens really versatile - and the IQ is wonderfull

What USM? Ultrasonic manual? Depends on how fast you are
