Aren't TS lenses the best for product photography? I don't think Pentax has any.
I do not think anyone would consider to jump ship having this investment to lenses. Sensor shift can replace shift to some degree and anyway there are T/S lenses available for Pentax.
Abandon Canon, I'm selling mine too. Pentax is the future.

Which TS lenses are available for Pentax??? I fail to see how sensor shift has anything to do with TS. Obviously I am missing something.

Obviously the sensor cannot tilt, but it can shift. And with K-7 and K-5 photographer in in full control over the shift function. In principle it is the same as shifting the lens. Only that real shift lens can shit few milimeters more.
BTW the old 28/3,5 shift lens from Pentax is a K mount, if you are looking for real shift solution with Pentax.

I think you misunderstand. For product photography, tilt is useful. The old 28 is a shift lens which is useful for scenery but cannot tilt.

I use pentacon six mount with tilt adapter.
Very useful for product photos.

Tilt is good with almost all focal - I have 45, 50, 80, 100, 120, 150, but have not try my 300mm
Shift is good for wide - 28, 35, or wider if i can find.
Also have the arax 35TS

Still missing a tiltable/shiftable bellow for macros.
