Here's an example where tilt did not help at all becasue the top of bush in the foreground would be OOF. I tried regular, no tilt and tilt both as a single shot and with focus stacking (I wanted to see if focus stacking with tilt would help alleviate any halos you can get when focus stacking with small-ish apertures).

I ended up using no tilt with a focus stack at f8 (looks like I used just 3 exposures).

I did, of course use sift to keep the trees straight.

One other point, about filters. I did build myself a polarizing filter setup for this lens (could also be used with grads or ND filters) which works for about 75% of the shift range. However, it cost over $700 to put together - although $400 was the polarizer itself. It works well though.

And yes, I use polarizers, even at 17mm. Actually although the above Death Valley shot was with a 1.4TC I think, I most definitely used a polarizer with it. You can also always blend shots with different amount of polarization to remove any unwanted sky effects.

I know this was directed at OP, but I need this too! Thanks for posting, looks like a great resource on TS lenses and mastering tilt and shift.

Hey no prob. I'm here to help anyone I can, any way I can. Hope it helps.

Thanks to everyone for taking the time to answer. Some very useful advice here that I'm trying to digest.

You should find some very helpful information on landscape shooting with Tilt-Shift lenses on this page:

I follwed Darwins suggestions on filter holder, polarizer and grads. Could not be happier.

ejenner is a mongrel. I had talked myself out of any interest in the TS-E17. Those landscapes are sensational. That has probably just cost me $2,500. But it will be nice to be able to tilt and shift instead of cropping images from my 16-35.

Don't forget the Fotodiox filter kit :mrgreen:

LOL, glad I could help!

Seriously, you won't be disappointed. If you're into landscapes the 17 or 24 (if 17 is too wide for you) TS-E's are just sooo nice. The price was a bit painful for me at the time, but I just knew I wanted this lens and I'm so glad I talked myself into it. Just remember if printing to back off the sharpening from what you use with the 16-35 :D.

Look at it this way, when Canon comes out with a new super-wide sharp zoom for $3500, you probably won't be interested.
