Hey all,

I was looking at the Arsat 80mm F2.8 Tilt shift because it's the cheapest tilt shift lens I've seen on the market. I was wondering if this is a full frame lens and I was wondering if anyone had any reviews for it? 80mm is pretty long for this lens so I'm not sure I'll even be happy with it, but I would love to get a tilt shift lens to play with (A real one with good optics).

Here's a link: http://www.amazon.com …r=1-8&keywords=tilt+shift (external link)

I love the miniature look as well as using this for building photos when I'm at their base or something along those lines.


Bodies: Canon 5D3 - Canon 1D4
Lenses: Sigma 120-300mm F2.8 DG OS HSM SPORTS - Canon 100mm F2.8 L - Canon 70-200mm F2.8 L - - Canon 85mm F1.2 L V2 - Canon 40mm F2.8 Pancake
Extras: 2 Neewer TT520 Speedlites - Manfrotto 3021BPRO and ballhead

don't know it, but 80mm is going to be too long at the base of a building. I think these are used more for portraits, products, and food photography.
A tricky thing, tripod is a must, patience and practice required. I borrowed one once, was too slow for my taste. A very special use kind of lens.


40D, 5D3, a bunch of lenses and other things :cool:

I have a tripod and for my type of shots I can wait and take many many shots until I'm satisfied so it's worth a shot....I wish I could just use one for like a month and return it if I hated it :P. I also would LOVE to do miniature photography haha. I wouldn't tilt/shift for portraits unless I wanted more in my FOV, I despise images with tilt shift for regular photos tbh :P.

it might just be a bit long, set your 24-105 to 80mm and see if that will work for your plans. Reviews on Amazon are pretty decent (though only 4). Might also want to look into the Rokinon offerings, though I think they're more expensive.

With Amazon you have something like 30 days return, just have to pay shipping unless the lens doesn't work as described, then return is free. Worth a try I'd say. Check the return policy, it's pretty good with Amazon.

No never played with one, I own a TSE 17mm f4 L and a TSE 24mm MK I 1.3.

Personally I would pass on that lens, its the cheapest Tilt shift on the market, that should tell you something.
There was a Rokinon 24mm tilt shift listed in the for sale section for 550.00 bucks

I mean, based on sample images, it's a terrific lens. I would be pairing it with a 5D2 so it'd be pushed to its peak on that body (hopefully). If it's not sharp (like a lens baby) then I'm not interested. I want something I can try for a bit and return if need be and $550 on a 24 is good but I need to sell gear soon to fund it. Any suggestions on an old TSE or something like that that wouldn't cost me both my arms?

If it's for fun, you can try to adapt a lens designed for 6x6 (some 80mm are cheap...) with a plunger!
