I just got back from a 4 day trip to the Seattle area...2 days out shooting and 2 days in a classroom workshop...the first day out I spent in the Hoh Rainforest...will have to go back, I left so much on the table there...but I brought a 24TSE with me to work on some wide pano format images...I need two new pieces at home.

Hi Travis, it's been a while...very nice rain forest shot! How are you liking the Sony with Canon lenses? I keep getting tempted...but still love my Canon bodies.

I'm pondering a tilt shift, but maybe more for portraits. I shoot in the redwoods, where I think fisheye may be a better choice than tilt shift. I'm headed back again next week, and I may study for ideas where a plane of focus that's not perpendicular may have a purpose. And to think about tapering trunks.

The straightening through shift should work nice in some groves. Sometimes I find people like the tapered look because it exaggerates height. Maybe the way to go is shoot both ways.

I like being able to still use a tilt shift. Focus peaking makes it a lot easier.

Not sure that a fisheye and a tilt shift are in the same ballpark. If you know why a TSE is so sharp then you understand the value in them. For 99% of what I do with a TSE I don't use the tilt function, only the shift.

My thought about TS in the redwoods is changing the plane for certain tall trunks to keep the plane more parallel to the length of the trunk. I didn't say fisheye are in the same ballpark, but in certain groves, the effect can look more dramatic, used sparingly. I've got primes on par with some tilt shift, that I use in the redwoods. Although, even 24-70mm on tripod adds enough detail like the photo below, even up to a 30 inch print size. I almost have to up to 60 inch prints to spot bigger difference between prime and the better zooms. With the exception of portraits in the forest, then it shows smaller.

Odds are, I will own both before autumn arrives.
