...Question: IS using the "magic angle" approach (normal, non TS-E macro lens) to get most part of our macro subject in focus the same as using the TILT feature on TS-E lens for similar result?
I have no experience with the TS lenses Kurt, but in my head I think that the effect would pretty much be the same. I will focus on a proboscis, and then twist my wrist slightly to push the area of acceptable focus deeper into the frame to get the subjet's eye in focus.

The tough part shooting with an actual TS lens would be in predicting the angle ahead of time, and hoping that the subject doesn't move. Not uncommon for me to have to refocus multiple times because the critter is pulling away from me.
