    Hi Bob, and welcome to the site...Tilt & Shift Lens

    I've never used either lens, but based on what I've read most that chose the 45mm wish
    they had picked the 24mm instead. What body do you plan to use it on?

    Hi,
    B700+24 quite perfect for me.

    Thanks...I have ordered one...did you have any adjustments done to it I.e. that the shift and tilt are on the same axis?

    Have a guess :)

    Hi Bob,

    I'm a little puzzled as to why you feel you need perspective correction for landscape photography?

    Bob,I forgot that B700 has pop up flash.That could mean there is the possibility you can't rise completely the lens(!?)

    Re: Tilt & Shift Lens

    I read the tutorial on tilt lenses in here and I have acquired one - an 85 mm micro Nikon so I could get more of my macro subjects in focus. I would also like to do some of those miniature toylike pictures - Like Vincent Laforet. I haven't been able to get my plane of focus right, though, so must be missing something and I was wondering if anyone had any pointers to share
