    Cons: 1. Lock switches release lock completely when you turn them a bit 2. Tilted and shifted images have lower resolution at the edges 3. Focus ring is very easy to rotate; not well damped.

    Pros: 1. Very economic opportunity to use tilt-shift lens, 2. Nice build quality but one "tick" lower grade than Canon, 3. Nice aperture control ring, 4. Nice resolution when not tilted, not shifted. 5. Light-weight and sturdy

    Summary: As a tilt-shift lens option, Samyang offers a very economic opportunity with optimal quality for all photographers to taste tilt-shift experience. Unless users go "pixel-peeping", the quality is nice and sufficient. The ideal aperture is f/8 for best sharpness. But to increase the effect of bokeh with tilt, it is rather good to take shot at f/3.5. As for all tilt-shift lenses, it is a difficult lens to use. But practice shall render you able to use it with skill in time. It is a very delicious taste to shoot photographs with Samyang T-S 24mm when you get used to it. I can recommend this lens for all photographers who wants to use tilt-shift lens but does not want to invest in 3-times-more-expensive Canon lenses. At this price, it is an amazing experince.
