I post too Much on Here!!

Being able to turn focus past infinity is crucial for tilt control. Indeed the ability to go much further than currently would be very useful and appreciated."You invest in these lenses when you work with a tripod,"
My 17mm TSE + EOS 5DSR have been fine handheld outdoors, and even down to 1/25 indoors - few private spaces, like churches or government buildings, let you set up a tripod without going through cumbersome permission applications. I've lost some shots because the infinity setting of the 17mm is not at the end of the dial and gets knocked out of place easily, so autofocus might overcome this (a focus lock would have been even better).
Here is a full explanation by the man himself, Harold Merklinger. https://luminous-landscape.com/canon-tilt-shift-lens-ts-e-243-5l-version-ii-review/
