Canon tilt shift adapter

Pentax should've thought of this

Canon patent shows off motorized adapter that will turn any EF lens into a tilt-shift lens for M-series cameras

I don't think there is much point for Pentax to make a tilt/shift adapter for using K-mount lenses on Q.

Could work the other way - adapter to tilt-shift a 645 lens on K, with no lenses required to maintain infinity. The problem with TSS is that the most suitable subjects commonly call for wide angle, and substantially wide. I had a 24mm Canon TSS on a FF film era Canon and it was just wide enough for most subjects. My current 24mm Samyang TSS on a K3 is not wide enough for the smaller format - about 16-17mm would be far better. When (hope-hope-hope) the FF Pentax arrives this Fall, the Samyang will probably be used more. BTW: The Samyang does not have the IQ of the Canon, by a margin.

Wow! Wonder how much it's going to cost?

Yes I wish there was tilt/shift adapter for Pentax 67 or 645 lenses to use on K mount bodies. Or one for P645 or P67-Nikon, Canon, and Minolta.
