A patent showing the possibility of image stabilization in a tilt-shift lens has appeared. While the patent doesn't mention anything about a potential optical formula, it's an interesting idea nonetheless.

We've heard in the past that Canon was working on a tilt-shift macro lens, which would be an engineering challenge for the EF mount. Could we see IS appear in such a lens?
