Tried out the Shift ability, while only 8° in each direction, it gave me approximately 56 MP in 1:1 format out of my 32 MP sensor in panorama stitching, not bad but not great. I was shooting handheld ao the alignment is not perfect all around but it was easily doable.

Tried the Shift and Tilt function, for Tilt you get only 6° but it can still bring out great effect from Macro to Landscape (infinity). The focus point was on the inside door of th church and the Tilt fell very slimly on the the door. I used only the 0 Shift and -8 Shift because I missed the focus on the +8 Shift image and it wouldn't have worked in panorama stitching.

I would love to try this effect with a different subject.

Another panorama stitching and it's so easy to get the result. I didn't focus very well on the tall street lamp (I am shooting at f 2.8 and the focus ring is very narrow at 100° and so heavily dampened it takes my entire left hand to make it move). I also Tilted the image to increase the perception of "walled vision".

Turned it in B&W because if the noise, only Shifted horizontally.

Things got interesting trying portraits at home. Vertically Tilting to get her entire face in PoF (Plane of Focus) but her head was slightly skewed to the right side and her left eye was out of focus.

Horizontal Tilting to try and keep both eyes in PoF but the ears and nose significantly out of focus.

I think this will be a very interesting lens to play with for portraits. Just need to get used to the bits and knobs (literally).

Cool! I've wanted to try one of these ever since taking a picture of my guitar at the "right" angle but hardly anything was in focus. Not worth getting a whole lens just for that lol.

Super cute dog BTW!
