Samyang/Rokinon 24mm tilt-shift samples, anyone?

Hi folks!

I'm preparing a review of the Samyang/Rokinon 24mm F3.5 tilt-shift, and I'm looking for sample images shot with the lens. I'll build my own gallery of samples, but it's unlikely that I'll get hundreds of keepers in the short time I have the lens... If anyone is interested in sharing images with that lens, proper credit will of course be given.

Contact me via PM to arrange for file transfers.

Thanks in advance!

Ooooh, can't wait for this one
I assume your going to be using your shiny new K-1, correct?

I've always been interested in this lens, but it is too long imho for architecture on an APS-C camera, but would be perfect on a FF camera.

cali92rs is correct - much better on FF, although I knew that was likely when I purchased mine for use on a K3 as way back I had a Canon 24mm TSS on a Canon ES, and it was just wide enough. I'll see if I have any images worth your attention and if I have a chance over the days remaining this month see if I can find some suitable subjects. BTW: I especially bought this lens and primarily use it for gaining DOF in some scenics rather than straightening architectural verticals, but I have and do use it sometimes for the latter. And IQ, IMHO, is not up to the old Canon 24mm TSS, to say nothing of the new Canon lenses.

Both uses are relevant, and will be studied.

I can't compare. It will be tested as the only TS currently available for Pentax.

I'll be happy with any sample you deem good enough.

Well, yes, there's that. My sentence was accurate for all practical purposes, but not in theory

I'm bumping this thread in the hopes that there are more users out there who haven't yet posted any pics!

It is not easy to get the result you want with this lens, just an experimental shot

I find I got pretty satisfying results, but of course tilting and shifting isn't always intuitive. Do you have a higher-resolution version of your image?

Yes, the raw, but why do you ask, what do you expect from it.
