But like above mentioned, for me the ability to rotate the tilt and the shift independently to each other was the big point .....
+1, that's the reason I sold my TS 45mm 2.8 ,great lens, good for some creative stuff, but what most annyoed me was the tilt and shift we're not indenpedent, but that was for my use, you might enjoy it. My 45mm suffered also from a bit of lack of contrast, and didn't like the focus ring that much, was a little too stiff coming to the minimum focus distance, tested others copies from some other photographers and seemed about the same, bought it used and sold it 3 months later by not much loss, now i'm looking for another TS lens, in this range or longer, because it can give some looks and creativity that no others lens can give you, let's hope CanonRumors is right and we might see some new TS lens from canon at this year's photokina.
Depends on what focal length fits your needs, but the 45mm is a fine lens,
