So here I am, practicing. On brick walls. To find out how exactly the plane of focus can be influenced by tilting the lens, and by choosing the correct focusing distance.



This is the one where I wanted as much in focus as possible. So tilted the lens plane towards the wall. The full 8 degrees tilt. And then moved the camera to get things sharp.



And here you see the lens was tilted AWAY from the wall plane. You see that only a very small part is in focus. The rest gets a creamy out of focus look.
Now this is good to know. For example for taking portraits in distracting circumstances. More to follow!

Hi, GAS in action!
as K1 is on at service, K5 returned to my hands. K5 still give a lot of joy. Especially with 80mm f2.8 MC biometar Pentacon SIX /PK rubber shift lens.

Are there any other K mount tilt lens adapters with infinity focus besides ones for using pentacon lenses?

For these l used my Canon M50, Takumar 28 3.5, and Canon M-M42 tilt adapter. Tilting allowed me to get all of the car and coins in focus at f/8.
