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.
