More weird, less useful than expected

Withlacoochee, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I wasn't expecting great optics but I thought there would be some limited Tilt/Swing effect. Even with the lens centered, most of the image is still out of focus. Tilting or swinging the lens just changes to a different weirdness.

Not really my cup of tea

not so impressed, B&H Photo
21 May 2013
  • Excerpt: I was excited to get this lens, but after opening the box, and mounting it to my camera, I found the excitement wane rather quickly. The build quality is less than I was expecting, with a plastic feel. the tilt adjust tightener had a less than smooth rotation, and the manual iris rings just ask to become lost. This is just my experience. I don't want to turn people away if this is really what they are looking for in a lens.
  • Pros: Good For Artistic Photos
  • Cons: Cheap feeling, Not Functional

Not in love

PhotoBrook, B&H Photo
3 November 2011
  • Excerpt: I'm a pro photographer who thought I'd get a fun lens for creative portraiture with bride and grooms and seniors. Problem is, I'm already in love with the Canon T/S lenses and this is no substitute. If you want a T/S lens, then save up. If you like the toy look of the composer - knock yourself out. Just remember - this is no tilt shift. It's really difficult to find the sweet spot... make sure you zoom in on your thumbnail or you might be surprised when you get home.
  • Pros: Lightweight
  • Cons: Hard to find sweet spot

One Trick Pony.

  • Summary: I'm a professional photographer, I do commercial work and fine art, so I have used many types of cameras. I was hoping this would be a good alternative to a tilt shift lens. The problem I found is that it really only does tunnel focus. I'm not saying it's useless, but it only does one specific thing and I don't think it's worth the money for something I can do very easily in photoshop. It doesn't come close to a tilt/shift lens.

für Spielkram ok

  • Summary: Diese Linse ist ein witziges Baby. Mir sind die Abstriche gegenüber einem vollen Till/Shift-Objektiv gegenüber aber zu gravierend. Sicher kann mensch diese beiden auch nicht vergleichen... Deshalb zurück zum Superservice von Amazon.
