Anyone using the Ronkinon Tilt Shift 24mm instead of the Canon TS-E 24?

I haven't heard much about the Rokinon version of Canon's TS-E 24mm. Anyone have any experience with this lens for architectural shoots?

I was interested in this lens too and had trouble finding anything good about it. I found the sample photos thread unimpressive. And it didn't review all that well. In case you haven't seen them, here are main links on POTN that talk about the lens. All in all, there wasn't much discussion about it on POTN. I'd very much like for someone to chime in saying it's great. A 24 tilt-shift for this price would be great and lots of fun.

That is a great price, but my Spidey Sense tells me this might be a "you get what you pay for" scenario.

I agree, and it seems to have dropped in price. A lot of the reviews say it wasn't worth the $1k retail price, but now it's going for sub $700. I wonder if that'd change any of their minds.

Hello,
I picked up one to shoot a recent job on the Fuji GFX. I tested it and the difference between the 32-64G lens and the Rokinon was minimal.
I was going to rent the Canon but I would also need to rent a body to set the aperture, as the GFX and simple adapters can't.

Regardless, It preformed quite well.
I'll post photos after I get the release.
