It's just a more precise way to keep the lens from moving.
Your work is fantastic, so it obviously works well for you, and it certainly is a more elegant solution. And I am a big believer in using whatever equipment works best for a person. I follow that philosophy pretty seriously with my main work (which is not photography).
Since I only shift once left and right and generally one mm less than max (i.e. the same shift each time), with my crude efforts I don't think my camera body shifting is my limitation. I feel I am able to reposition the body accurately enough for my level of photography in less than 5 seconds.
And I am saving my pennies toward possibly getting my toe in the Nikon camp for the first time with the d800e and a couple lenses.
It would take a pretty strong Canon rumor (>22 mp, dual cards, weather sealing, good AF) to stop me unless reports on the d800 are disappointing.
If I don't fork into Nikon, then I will get the ts-e 17mm to go along with my ts-e 24mm ii and my ts-e90mm both of which I really like.
