    Really? I always thought the TS-E 24mm is one of the sharpest primes around. Bryan's ISO crops seem to support that: http://www.the-digital-picture.com/R...mp=0&APIComp=5
    Or does it get softer only when you apply tilt and/or shift?

    Thanks for the added info.

    Anybody have any experience with Hitech filters? I like the look of their aluminium holder system.

    JRW said it well, just to be clear, locked in the center - yep darn sharp, tilt 8 degrees, full shift and it is soft, but these are at the extremes, any single effort and the lens stands up darn well.
    If you see me with a wrench, call 911
