Just in Time for the K-1: a Schneider Tilt-Shift

If you're in Melbourne, this one's a possibility, if you have the readies:

It's HUGE!
Is that the lens pathdoc mentions here: https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/173-general-photography/315547-recent-pho...perience.html?
But I'd rather have a K-3ii, DA* 300 and 1.4 for that price, maybe even 100 macro and 16-50 will fit in as well!

Why is it advertised "For Pentax"? Isn't it a T-mount lens?

It's at "Camera Lane" - corner of Hardware Lane and Little Bourke St.


They often have second hand Pentax stuff and they are a very nice bunch of people.

Yes, there are others. I'm not sure what advantage a 50mm T-S would offer in which situation, but clearly such needs do exist, or they wouldn't have made this.

For myself, I'm more interested in what my K28 shift lens will do for the K-1, and, as a side issue, what tilt possibilities exist for the new 5-axis IBIS system the K-1 has.

Those are K mount, they have been around for a few years. You can buy a new one for $3365 US, so that one is a really good price.

It has an interchangeable bayonet and a pre-set aperture. That's why I thought it was T-mount.

But the Schneider is 50mm, and it costs only 2999.

I don't know for sure, but I think Schneider makes the lens fit your mount. So you can order it in m42 or Kmount or others, and that is what you get, without need for adapter. I mean, at over $3000, wouldn't you expect that?

I would really like to see some reviews of those Schneider lenses on Pentax cameras. I guess the 50mm TS can be good for product photography, close ups with wide DoF.. dunno really. On FF 50mm is not that telephoto, so it probably has more use there

I saw that when I was there a week or so back! Camera Lane on Lt Bourke Street. I refused the salesman's offer to let me mount it on my cameras; the thought I might drop it was too horrifying.

On the other hand, I did end up buying a Rikenon P 35-70 and an M-series SMC 135mm 3.5 off them. Much less expensive than this beastie.

They've always got interesting gear in that shop, which is why I usually make a point of visiting them when I'm in Melbourne.

I don't have many problems with high buildings when using a standard lens ( eg 50mm on 35mm film or 90mm on 6x7)

However this photo taken in Sydney with the Pentax MX and the SMC Pentax 1:2.8 24mm shows the problem with wide angle lenses.

So I would be more inclined to spend the hard earned on a shift lens that was of wide angle, rather than a standard focal length.

Yes, it is.

For that price, my young friend, you could almost have the K-1 body.

This Super Angulon 65mm from about 1970 or so cost about 1/20th of that.

The project to shoe horn such a wide angle lens into a hand held camera (2x3 "Baby" Century) was quite challenging.
Dan Fromm, the medium format expert over on Apug, gave some useful assistance.
And it took me a few days over winter to machine the parts.

The only movement available is about 9mm of rise, due to the short register.
That should be good for the verticals on old buildings aroung here.
I have not tried this lens yet, I will take it out out on the next sunny day.
