Looks like fun. I have the 17mm TS Canonstein, which is quite wide. I'd love to have a 35mm and 90mm.

The Canon 17 & 24ii TS-E are two of the reasons I'm switching from Pentax - there is just nothing like those lenses in any line up, for architectural photography.
PS 'Canonstein'?

And yeah, it is an amusing lens - also used it for some creative blurs in art nudes, perhaps still a bit NSFW in the marketplace forum.

OK, was almost wondering if you'd somehow magically managed to frankenstein a 17mm TS-E to Pentax mount - in which case I'd be about to pull many of the listings here!

Edit - have added Australian currency option asking price as it may be cheaper for some overseas buyers not using USD currency!

Do!
Well at least the postage will be slightly less to ship just across the country!

Bump, price reduction.

I realise this is a bit specialist, but its one of the few tilt AND shift lenses available for Pentax that shares optical design with the Hartblei Super Rotator 35mm/2.8 which cost around US$2000!
Its a pretty cool little lens.
