    It can only do tilt. It has no shift capabilities.

    Also, it won't give you the same style of selective focus as a tilt-shift lens. A tilt-shift lens allows you to shift the focus around in a line where a Lensbaby moves the focus around in a circle.

    I wish I could find some example photos showing the difference but there don't seem to be any.

    I understand now, I going to save my money and get a Canon 45 TS, I looked at different ways of doing this, purchasing a tilt adapter, and using PC6 lens on a shift adapter, time I spent all that money, for not great results I will have pent over half of what a canon will cost.

    Probably wise. I bought an old lensbaby off eBay for not much money. I've not found much use for it...

    Great lens you'll love it. I only wish the tilt and shift were independent like the 17 & 24.
