I've always wonderd why none of the third party lens manufacturers made any tilt shift lenses.

But this is about to change!

Samyang has confirmed that they will be releasing a new 24mm tilt/shift lens later this year. This will be the first 'affordable' tilt shift lens ever.

Lets hope it will be a good one!

If barrel distortion is well controlled, I'll be first in line if the pricing and IQ are anything similar to their other ultrawides. On this, all depends. Tilt shifts are nothing if they have barrel distortion.

Photoshop. From Nikon 24mm PC-E lens.

Yes I agree, the same knobs, and screw orientation.

Perhaps someone just made it for fun, since Samyang haven't released an official picture yet?

What about this? Also photoshoped?

I don't doubt they have been working on a tilt shift lens, but the image above is not their product.

I hope that they'll include a "rotate" feature.

Yes I did and that comment was not there at the time I made mine.

I hope so - and with at least 12mm of shift in any direction.

Samyang is up there with Canon and Nikon in terms of optics. AF doesn't matter when you're dealing with tilt-shift lenses.

If Samyang can make a 24mm tilt-shift lens with 12mm shift, for making panoramas, and a flat front element for filter compatability, it'd make the D800e a definite 'yes'. After all, the main thing holding me back at the moment is the lack of Nikon-compatible 16/17mm and 24mm tilt-shift lenses with 12mm shift, to match the TS-E 17L and TS-E 24L. The 45/50mm and 85/90mm ranges are already covered by Schneider, and work on both Canon and Nikon bodies.

It doesn't matter that it's 'shopped - they are producing a TS lens.

I'm excited, as I've been looking for a lens with shift capability for pano-stitching purposes, and all of the "affordable" legacy versions I've tried have fallen well short of the mark in terms of IQ.

The downside, of course, is that within a couple of months of release, the internet will be flooded with "miniaturized" shots, along with their creators smugly proclaiming that they're real and not done in PP. Spare me!

I think Samyang could do very well by concentrating on tilt-shift lenses and making no compromises on quality, even if it would increase the price.

After all, AF - the main reason Samyang's normal lenses have to be cheap to compete with Canon and Nikon lenses - isn't a factor with tilt-shift lenses, so Samyang doesn't need a price advantage to compete. So, make the lenses as good as possible - outstanding optical quality, with 15mm shift in any direction and adjustable tilt and shift axes - and price it only a little less than the Canon and Nikon models, and Samyang would have a real winner and the opportunity to become a major player in the lens market, specialising in specialty lenses and effectively seizing the landscape and architectural photography markets.

They could even do what Schneider did and make a lens with interchangeable Canon and Nikon mounts (possibly adding Leica and Sony to the mix) allowing people who buy into the Samyang system to change camera bodies at will.

16mm, 24mm, 50mm and 100mm tilt-shifts would be a good start, possibly adding 14mm, 21mm, 35mm and 200mm at some stage.

I won't buy a $1500 Samyang lens. IMO, it should not be more expansive than a used 1st gen Canon 24mm TS lens.

Why wouldn't you buy it, if they can make one that's just as good, or better, than the Canon lenses? It's not like one has AF whereas the other one doesn't, like with other Samyang lenses - both are MF only anyway. Because it doesn't have the Canon label on it?

Schneider tilt-shifts are around $4k each. And they're superb lenses. If Samyang can produce anything close to that, I think $1500USD (i.e. probably $2500 in Australia...) would probably be a very fair price.
