Conclusion: The lens does two things that are practically unrelated, and both of which are borderline useless in the extreme wideangle. Firstly, the shift mechanism allows perspective correction. This was a critical part of photography in the days of large format, and I used this lens to get the same benefit on film when I started out with Canon. However, if you are working digitally, it is far easier and cheaper to correct perspective while editing.
Pros: fantastic build quality
Cons: leave perspective correction to editing software, wideangles have too much dof to need tilt, resolution becomes quite poor when shifted
