Exciting news for those of us interested in stitching, architectural photography, etc. No official announcement just yet, but a dpreview.com thread is lively. Apparently 45mm and 85mm f/2.8 tilt/shift lenses are also in the works, very exciting news indeed, especially if the optical quality is as impressive as Nikon’s recent 14-24 and 24-70 zooms. Unclear is whether these are “G” lenses lacking an aperture ring, which would be a pity for Canon shooters looking to use them via an adapter. See tomorrow’s update.
