Tilt-Shift Lens Demo at Photokina

Schneider-Kreuznach had an interesting demo of the effect of a tilt lens at Photokina 2012. At Photokina 2010 they introduced three Tilt-Shift lenses all available in K-mount (45, 90 and 120 mm) and this year they introduced a fourth lens, a 28 mm, also available in K-mount.

The demo set-up show-cased the 90 mm on a Nikon tethered to a monitor. What we see is that the slanted object is rendered shaply from front to back:

These lenses are manufactured in Germany which is reflected in the prices (in the EUR 2,000 to 3,000 range). A less expensive alternative is the recently intorduced 24 mm Samyang Tilt-Shift lens. The price of the Samyang hasn't been announced yet but I'd speculate below EUR 1,000.

An online retailer in the UK is taking pre-orders for the Samyang for 999

Details about the lens can be found in the Samyang site in UK also.
