Unfortunately, as i just asked to Hartblei, and they answered in less than two hours, they informed me this lens was not any more in production...
Hello.
On what site did you ask?
You can found all products on Hartblei Tilt-Shift | Lenses & Adapter Rings.
Best Regards, Vitaliy.

Hartblei.com is scam, they don´t have any more lenses to sell . The official Site of Hartblei Ukraine is now:

Hartblei Tilt-Shift | Lenses & Adapter Rings

Luminous Landscape Hartbei review

That is an old review using film on a full frame camera. The 645D is cropped and digital, the results I got were quite different. The lens design, due to the digital designation is also different.

Hartblei availability

As mentioned in this thread before, there are two companies making the lenses under the Hartblei name (not including Stefan in Munich). For the medium format, the only legitimate one is made in the Ukraine and Vitaliy at Tilt Shift is the agent for this lens. I purchased one from him recently and while I had some issues with the lens - which may have been caused in shipping, he is replacing it for me with no hassle. My impression is that Vitaliy is a stand-up guy concerned with developing the best T/S super rotator he can for the pro and advanced hobbyist photographer. If you are going to buy one, consider his. I will post images from the replacement lens shortly after I get it next month.

Thanks for this reporting. Lack of tilt-shift lenses is among the very few significant issues for me with my 645D. The Hartblei 45mm Super Rotator is on my radar since it's the only option so far in this category of optics...

Clarifications again

I do not sell the Russian lens versions in Germany.

It still would be nice if we could look at some sample images made with this new "digital" version of the lens.

Is there somebody to share this with us ?
